REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Petbrosia

Petbrosia Custom Blend Dog Food

Where to Find: Petbrosia.com

As a concerned pet parent of 4, I'm always reading dog food labels, comparing them over and over again, as I try to find the best nutrition possible for my furkids - and my wallet.  Each of my dogs has different dietary needs - whether it be due to allergies, age, activity level or even size of the actual kibble - so finding a "one size fits all" kibble can be tough...
Every pet is unique. Their food should be too. - Petbrosia
Enter Petbrosia, home of custom blended dog food.  When they approached me to do a review of their product, I immediately said yes. 

Petbrosia was developed, like most innovative dog products these days, out of a need for something different for the creators' own pets.  You can read their story hereThey use  veterinarian and nutritionist designed algorithms to understand your pet’s unique nutritional needs. Users answer a few questions about their pet - breed, age, weight, energy level, allergies, and other health concerns - and Petbrosia works their magic to identify your pet’s key nutritional needs.

When it comes to actual ingredients, Petbrosia uses "only the highest quality, all-natural ingredients, grown and raised by farmers across America, and carefully selected for your pet’s individual needs."  This includes superior proteins, premium fruits and vegetables, quality carbohydrates, Petbrosia's own mineral blend, vitamins and supplements such as Glucosamine and Chondroitin, probiotic extracts, and essential fats and oils.

After some consideration, I felt Teutul would be my best test subject for a custom blend and I proceeded to fill out his Pet Profile on their website.  It was fairly simple and not at all time consuming.  Just a few days later, a box showed up on my doorstep, along with a print out of Teutul's Custom Blend information inside.  The information sheet includes everything you'd see on a regular dog food bag, including ingredients, content (fat, fiber, protein, calorie, etc.), as well as Tut's custom feeding instructions.

The first thing I noticed about Petbrosia's food was how tiny the kibbles were.  This is a bonus for those of us with dogs who have this special need (or tiny furkids). The second thing I noticed was how interested Tut was in his special blend!  He sure seems to love it. 

While I do think Petbrosia is a fantastic idea, especially for those dogs who can't eat just any 'ole dog food, I have to say that at this stage, their options are still very limited.  I was disappointed when I found out that the only protein available when we ordered was chicken.  While that's okay (still not preferred) for Tut, I realize it's a big no-no for many dogs.  The good thing is I hear they are adding a fish protein very soon.  But... that still only leaves 2 protein options.  For a truly customizable dog food, I would like to see at least 4 or 5 proteins offered.

Then there's the price to think about.  Again, for those of us with special dietary needs, we already know and are more than willing to spend extra.  Petbrosia custom blends range from $2.99 - $4.98 per pound, depending on how much you buy.  Shipping is about $4.95 - $9.90, however if you sign up for their Gold Club (automatic delivery schedule), you'll receive free shipping on 5, 10 or 20 pound boxes.

Petbrosia does have amazing customer service!  They make sure to send you several e-mails to remind you the best way to switch your dog over to their food, and to check in to see how things going.  I also received a couple of phone calls, but I'll admit - I didn't answer the call or call them back.  The messages left were to check in to see if I had any questions, see how Tut liked his food, etc.

custom food really does sound terrific. Ping has a lot of special needs because she is missing quite a few teeth and also has liver issues I hate feeding her hills and the home cooked didn't work well with her. Maybe a petbrosia blend would work

I would love to win a treat for our shepherd/husky mix Freya, just because she is such a sweet girl! She is a rescue my daughter brought home from the shelter where she was working. We feed quite a few stray cats and we can't always get them spayed before a litter arrives, but nanny Freya is on the job. She loves kittens and will watch and play with them, and whines to let us know when one wanders too far. She really is the best dog I have ever had!

My dog has some health issues too and I would love to find him healthier alternative food. I have never used Petbrosia products but it looks good. All natural food is definitely better than store bought.

I've been making Noah's food for several weeks now. I should really figure out what it costs per pound. It's amazing what we'll do for these animals. I hope they know how much they're loved.

I love the concept of custom pet food. Both of my dogs are different and each eat their own food so this is an accepted concept here. I would love to try this out and see how my Prince did on it. Great contest and I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend!

I would love to win this for my because our lab got a very bad staph infection and we found out he is allergic to one of the ingredients of CHEAP dog food so we can't use alpo,pedigree, purina nd others this food would be so awesome for him and his little sister.

I would love to win this for my girls because they have food sensitivities and I think a custom food would be very beneficial to them. A healthy food that I know won't cause them issues would be great!

My 3 fat cats would like me to win this for them. They never think they have enough food in their bowls although their bowls are always full.
