One of my biggest pleasures in life is shopping for pets. Food, toys, clothes – I’m always excited when I see something new that I think they’ll like. I have a tendency to anthropomorphize the animals in my life, but if you met them you would too. They’re so much like people I sometimes forget they’re not actually human. For all intents and purposes, they are my kids, so I spoil them as much and as often as possible. Even if it’s just a fun new dog toy or yummy cat treats – knowing I can give them something to get excited about is awesome.
I can easily get carried away when it comes to shopping for my furbabies, so I try to stick with stores where I can stock up while still saving money. That’s the smart thing to do, right?! Since I do most of my grocery shopping at Food Lion (yay MVP savings!!), I decided to take a stroll down the pet aisle just to see if anything jumped out at me. I did a little happy dance when I saw the Companion Pet products mingling with the other pet goods on the shelves. Companion Pet, formally known as the Home 360 Pet brand, is Food Lion’s newly revamped in-house pet brand. I love shopping Food Lion brand products because I know I’m getting great quality for a fraction of the cost of national brands.
I took advantage of the huge savings and stocked up on cat litter (because Phoebe is in the litter box a LOT!), rawhide chews, dog training pads, and even some wild bird seed. I also picked up a few cans of Companion cat food for the feral cats who have taken up residence in my backyard. The Companion line has something for all of your cat, dog, and bird needs! I love being able to get what I need in as few trips as possible, so finding affordable, high-quality pet products in the same place I buy groceries is a huge feel-good achievement.
Chloe was super excited about her rawhide chew. It’s bigger than she’s used to, but that didn’t stop her from grabbing it up and running away. Now I’m hoping it’ll last a while so she’ll stop chewing on everything else! Geez, I thought the puppy phase would have been over, but this little love bug hasn’t grown up yet. That’s why we keep a stockpile of puppy training pads. She goes outside but still goes inside too. It’s getting better, but the super absorbency of the Companion dog training pads keeps my floors safe in the meantime.
My Food Lion is still rolling out the Companion brand pet products so I’m excited to see what else they’ll be stocking. I was impressed by what they had so far, and even more impressed with the incredible prices. Companion brand products are on par with national brands in performance, nutrition, and ingredients. Since all of Food Lion’s private brand items have a double your money back guarantee, there’s absolutely nothing to lose by treating your pets! It’s just another reason I love shopping there.
