Mr. Chewy Rocks!

I’ll admit, I had never even heard of MrChewy.com until I got an e-mail from them asking us to review their company/service.  They mainly sell pet food, but also sell treats, toys, potty pads, and flea and tick medicine.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that they sold Riley’s brand of food (Canidae).  Their prices are competitive to other online food sellers and is about the same price as my local Care-A-Lot Pets store’s price once tax is added in for Care-A-Lot.  They offer free shipping on orders over $49, which is fairly easy to get to if you’re stocking up on dog food.

 “Wait, what?  More food for me?  Hooray!!”

I had been wanting to get Riley some Zuke’s Dog Treats for a long time (practically for the whole 2.5 years I’ve had her, but I never broke down and actually bought them), so I ordered her a pack of those to get my total to $49 to get the free shipping (I had a coupon code to use to do my review, but it didn’t include shipping).  But, for a 35 lb bag of dog food, the shipping was only going to cost $4.95, which isn’t bad when you consider that they didn’t charge for tax because I live in a different state than their company.

I placed my order on Wednesday, November 23rd, and was surprised to receive it on Saturday, the 26th.  I figured that with Thanksgiving being the 24th, it might take an extra day or two to get here.

I had just bought Riley a 35 lb bag of dog food at Care-A-Lot a week or two before I ordered this new bag.  Her bag from Care-A-Lot expires in March of 2012, so I was hoping the one from Mr. Chewy would have a bit longer of a shelf life so it wouldn’t go bad in the time it takes Riley to eat 70 lbs of food (gosh, that seems like a lot!).  I was pleased to see that the expiration date on this new bag of food from Mr. Chewy expires in September of 2012. Wahoo!

 The “goods.”  Oh, and Riley is completely in love with the Zuke’s treats (must smell good to her–they stink to me!).
All in all, I would have to recommend Mr. Chewy.  They have an option that if you sign up for a recurring shipping schedule, you get free shipping for life.  I don’t quite keep track of how long it takes Riley to eat a bag of dog food, but I may try it in the future (after I figure out how long it takes her to eat a 35 lb bag of dog food–I have two bags sitting in my kitchen right now because my food container only holds 30 lbs of food at a time!).  I’m assuming that if you want to switch brands later on, they’ll allow you to or if you need to cancel your schedule (like if your dog should die or something) you can.  You would have to check into that before you set up your schedule.
But, as long as you don’t live in Pennsylvania, there’s no tax.  Plus, you save yourself a trip to the store and lugging a bag of dog food in and out of your car!  And if you set up a delivery schedule, you won’t all of a sudden realize you’re out of dog food and have to make an emergency trip to the pet store.  There are also over 70 brands of dog food–some of them may not be carried in a store near you, so you have a lot of options.
