Quite impressive! First off the Royal Canin is $15.00 LESS than at the feed store!! I put together an order that includes some small items that I use routinely. Over $49.00 - free shipping every three weeks - win - win!!
Awesome! Glad to hear it worked out for you! The only thing I have against Chewy (and Wag) is that they don't ship to Alaska! So we can only use their service when we're visiting friends in the contiguous states. Ah well... I guess I don't blame them. Shipping stuff up here isn't cheap!

jocoyn They are the best. I went on the chat and asked if they sent out annual statement like Amazon to help me with my Use taxes and they calculated what I spent last year on the spot ... they have always been very helpful, fast, packaging is excellent.

I think you will really like Chewy.com. They have great service. I recently had a problem with my bags of Merrick beef GF coming with a hole at the top of the bag. I did not trust giving my dog opened food. I called them and told them what was going on. They called the warehouse and talked to the manager there and got it figured out. It took 3 times, but they were awesome about it. I just received a bag today, and it was perfect. The food that was not used, they told me to donate it to the locale shelter. The people are great and their prices are good and I can't say enough about their service. Great choice!

That would concern me a bit....what is used to preserve the nutrition? Or is it in the packaging process that keeps the expiration date fresh?

Doc Well I'm older than God's dog and think the online route is the way to go. Too darn many foods to choose from stick with the one that works for you and your dog.
Doggiefood.com - Dog, Cat, & Pet Food, Treats, Food & Supplies - Free Shipping is a good online company too.

EJQ Thanks for all of the advice so far - the online route is starting to look very good! I did that back in the day when Pets.com was around.

_Zero_ I'd also recommend you look into ordering online. I've had good results using both Chewy.com and Wag.com, and it looks like both sites carry Royal Canin. If your purchase is more than $49 at either site, they'll ship you the food for free, so you could order a couple bags at a time and get them delivered to your door. That way you wouldn't have to make the trip and you wouldn't have to change foods.

Me too... Even if I can find what I feed, it's a bigger issue for me to carry a 30lb bag to and from my car haha. I'd rather have it delivered to my house, and go to my local stores for treats, toys, and accessories.

I have a choice - switch to a new food OR travel the 38 mile round trip to the nearest Petsmart. I'm older than dirt; have had dogs most of my life. I think I've tried all of so called "top brands" and each carried it's own set of problems.

I've been feeding Royal Canin for many years and have encountered absolutely no problems - that goes for baby, puppy and adult.

After reading claims and reviews until my head aches I'm beginning to think that the trip to Petsmart might not be that bad.

I'd like to hear of your experience with some other brands.

Note to you newbies: even us old timers need help once in a while.
I'm almost as old as dirt. LOL and I gave up. After trying my puppy on 3 different grain free foods and having nothing but pudding poo I went back to the tried and true Science Diet. Works for me. LOL
