Our rescue dog, Wingnut, is a member of our family. We call him our “fur baby.” So it makes sense that they should be eating the same healthy, nutritious food that we do, right? We want him to live long, healthy, happy life and one of the best things we can do to help ensure that happens is by feeding them a high-quality pet food.
I have a 60 pound, 2 foot tall rescue mutt. He’s my little shadow and I couldn’t imagine him not being by my side!
We bought him food from one of the local grocery store chains when we ran out of food on the weekend (when the specific pet store was closed for the day… at 4pm). And while he ate the food – maybe out of desperation – he was left with some… unpleasant side effects. Let’s just say he needed to go outside quite a bit from it.
His little tummy was so upset by this grocery store brand! Even though we went out and got him specific food for doggy indigestion (that was very pricey!), I’ll be honest… the price of the food and the inconvenience of heading to the specialty store every time he needed food was a lot. We felt like we were more than a little trapped!
So when Food Lion reached out to me about their Companion Brand Dog Food, I’ll be honest, I was a little skeptical. What if we had the same issues again? What would happen if we were just doomed to having to get specialty dog food forever? For crying out loud, we’d spent more trying to get the right dog food for poor Wingnut than we had on groceries in a week for our family of 5!
Needless to say, we were ready to try anything to avoid that!
Thankfully, Food Lion stands by their products and has a double your money back guarantee – meaning that even if Wingnut’s tummy did get upset, we could return the food and get our money back from it.
I’ve partnered up with Companion Brand Pet Food from Food Lion to see how their brand of dog food – that would save me SO much money by buying instead of the boutique foods – Companion Brand Pet Food contains a healthy blend of fruits and veggies, which are natural sources of potassium, fiber, vitamins and minerals. And – the best part! – you can buy it straight from your local grocery store!
I love this because anyone who has a dog knows that they are truly a part of the family, and deserve to be treated with as much love as we do our human family members!
You can buy Companion Brand Pet Food from any local Food Lion. learn more about where you can find Companion Food here!
We headed to our local Food Lion to pick up a bag of Companion Brand Pet Food. I love that you can buy Companion Brand Pet Food from the grocery store, instead of having to go to a specialty pet store. It means I can pick up Wingnut’s food while I’m doing our grocery shopping, without having to make an extra stop (super bonus as a mom of little ones!)
We fed it to him and he ate it up right away (which is unusual since he’s not the best at handling change). He loved it!
And then I waited. Usually, if he was going to have – let’s just say… – ”ill” effects, they would happen within a day. So we waited and watched… and nothing! No tummy trouble, no grumpy puppy, no nothin’ but a happy pup with a full tummy!
I checks off all of my boxes:
It fits my budget? Check!
I can get it without making a separate trip to the store? Check!
The dog likes it? Check!
Buying Companion food for my dog is saving me so much money PLUS my dog loves it! Both of those things mean that I am a happy camper!
