Saw this ad today.

https://www.feedmyfurbaby.co.nz/

Anybody tried or know anything about it?

We have two hungry dogs and go through a bit of dog food. While this doesn't look any cheaper it's convenient - usually when I run out the place I buy from has run out of the big bags so I end up buying a smaller bag that costs more. So it'd probably even out!

Anyway just curious if anyone knows anything about them?

Don't know much about these guys - but I use a effectively the same concept as a subscription with auto-shipments from pet.co.nz which is cheaper than stores and because its on an auto-ship, they ensure stock is on hand.

I just order from petpost.co.nz or pet.co.nz works out much cheaper.

We just get K9 Natural from the supermarket, done.

 

It's not like you have to cook for your pet - the premise behind My Food Bag and others.

Also, natural food instead of the dry stuff...

I only feed my dogs Kronch, which is a Danish made food based on very high quality salmon. Originally developed for sled dogs I think.

 

 

 

There is only one importer in NZ (www.kronch.co.nz) and they supply by courier very reliably - I just email and the food arrives 2 days later with an invoice attached.

 

It is EXTREMELY good dog food.

As already mentioned, we use pet.co.nz auto shipment, but you can break that up if you see a special price come through in the mean time.
We also stick to the no grain/filler for the car and dog food.

Had a quick look, we feed Backhawk and dogroll - normally go to Animates - seems a similar price - we shop on specials though?

I purchase a high quality grain free food made in NZ (not a NZ Company) called Addiction. I purchase large bags with free delivery etc from pet.co.nz. I am a happy camper.

I have a pug and have been using Feed My Furbaby for two years. Before I was cycling through a few different dog foods available at the supermarket, and eventually bought a jumbo sack of Purina which she hated and would often leave alone until hunger made her eat.

 

To this day she wolfs down the Feed My Furbaby stuff. Yes there is cheaper stuff around but I know she likes it so worth it. 

 

There is another company called Cooper's Pet Kitchen which started recently. The concept and physical food are very similar so will probably get the same reaction.

I assume you mean a raw cat food diet, ie just fresh cut meat. We tried both our cats on it, both were not interested at all. They both get fed premium dry food, with plenty of water, eg Hills Science Dental or Royal Canin Dental mixed 50/50 with either Black Hawk or Addiction.

yes sorry - Raw meat. Our cat in Aussie was fed chuck steak, kangaroo, kidneys, livers plus Royal Canin Dental for 16 years but in her finial two years had to go to soft can food due to lack of teeth. Then when we replaced her with two cats from a pound, they had already been weaned onto can food and dry and would not touch raw meat. The remaining cat now enjoys Fancy Feast Savoury Centres, again due to lack of teeth, and wont really touch any other can food plus she now prefers Temptations instead of Hills Science Dental or Royal Canin Dental mixed 50/50 which she has had for 15 years.

 

Anyone tried the Jimbos range of which the supermarkets sell ?

We tried a range of raw meats, from Jimbos, to frozen pet grade meats (from local pet store), to human grade meat from the local butchers. We had much the same struggle, could not wean cats off their usual biscuit/tinned diet. Eventually we got them onto the biscuit diet above.
