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.
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)

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