Petbrosia releases Grain-Free Salmon! (Psst. Giveaway inside here!)

Do you see these guys here?

Can you guess why her tongue is out?   I just opened the Petbrosia bag. Seriously.  They come running.

Petbrosia is a mail order, I guess you can say "subscription box" of pet food for your dog or cat.  When you first sign up, you put in the information about your pet and it determines which food would be best for your pet and it tells you how often you should receive a box.  At that point, you can choose to go by their recommendations or just order a box.

As you can see from Miss Fatty Pants up there on the left, aka Ellie, she is a lover of food.  She has no issues chowing down and finishing a bowl.  Kenevil on the other hand, on the right, is a picker.  Because of this I have to leave the food down and Miss Fatty Pants, gets fatter.

I took the "test" for Ellie, because I figured she would be the one eating the most!  So here is her assessment:


  • Ellie's diet has optimal protein levels, few calories, and lower fat for an aging Labrador Retriever
  • Ellie's Body Condition Score is over 5.5 so her blend contains added L-Carnitine to help burn fat to promote a healthy weight.
  • Ellie's recommended calories per day reflect being spayed. 
And the recommended shipment schedule. They know how much Ellie weighs.  They know her breed type. They also know her age and activity level. Because of this they can formulate how much food she needs delivered and when!

Grain-Free Salmon
Nutrition Plan
20 lbs $67.99
Auto-ships FREE every 6 weeks 
I know what you are thinking. Oh lordy! $68 every month and a half. Let's break that down.  That is 42 days, so less than $2 a day.   That isn't a lot folks. Also, salmon is fantastic for dogs!  Miss Fatty Pants should only be eating about 2 cups a day.  That 20lb bag will be perfect!

Also, this food is REALLY high quality. Lots of food you get out there today are full of fillers.  Most foods I see on the shelves, the food ingredient listed is corn. A grain.  Last I checked, dogs like meat.  Here are the first few ingredients in the Salmon food:

Salmon, Chick Pea Flour, Sweet Potato, Menhaden Fish Meal, Pinto Bean Flour, Navy Bean Flour, Navy Beans Flour, Peas, Salmon Meal, Menhaden fish Meal, Spray Dried Egg, Green Beans, Pea Protein, Carrots 

You know what they have in common?   I can pronounce them. I can read them. AND none of them make me say EW. With this being salmon that I tried, the main ingredient is salmon. You can DEFINITELY tell that when you open the bag!  Watch out!  It DOES smell like fish! Here is a comparison link for Petbrosia and other pet foods.
The pellets of food are rather small.  When you switch your dog food you need to do it GRADUALLY.  If not, be ready for some upset tummies! (Trust me on this one. I used to work at a pet store. NOT fun with puppies and "bathroom" issues)
If you would like to try some for yourself they have given me a coupon code for you to save $10 off your first order. Head over to and key in BRV810 in the coupon code field.

They have also allowed me to giveaway a free three pound bag to one lucky reader! (Lower 48 US states only.  Sorry-no Alaska or Hawaii! )  Speaking of shipping, you get your order in 2-5 business days! Mine was VERY fast!  So enter below and good luck!  FYI-please use an email you check on a regular basis.  If after 48 hours I don't hear from you I will choose another winner!

I received a bag of food to facilitate my review. All thoughts expressed here are my own.  


  1. I have a fatty black lab named Sparky. He would love this!!

    1. Maybe Sparky and Ellie should become workout buddies. lol

  2. cutlery would love to try this as we suspect she has a food allergy. introducing her to a new food would help us narrow down what exactly it is she is allergic to!

  3. Carlos, who isn't a fatty would love this.

    Opbie, my jack russell beagale mix. He has too much energy to be a fatty, I'm surprised he's not though, he loves all things food! My two cats on the other hand, are some big gals!

  5. We have a new pup that is an Australian Shep mix and she is growing quickly! Sugar is her name & she is sweet as can be. We heart our new addition to our family!

  6. Tinka gained a ton while I was in OR. She definitely needs an option like this!!

  7. No pets over in GoodNCrazy land but I'll share your giveaway with my network! :)

  8. My Ellie would love this too! She's a black lab golden retriever mix. She is super sweet, but doesn't get much attention anymore with 4 kids running around.
