Where do you buy your kibble... I am trying to put something together and would like to see where everyone buys kibble.
We have a small chain of 4 or 5 stores here - Nashville Pet Products that sell the best brands of food.
There are also a few "boutiques" that sell the best foods. As well as matching sweaters for you and your dog, earrings with dogs on them, very foo foo leashes, etc. Everything you never needed but would love to have for your pet. I tell my clients to leave their wallets in the car.
Pet Smarts sells no human grade food here and PetCo and Pet Supermarkets sell pets which is a big bo-no in my book!
Oh, wait we have feedstores in the outlying areas that sell a few of the good brands too. Oh, and the health food stores too.
A lot of my clients feed Flint River Ranch. Partly because it is a good food and partly because they get you on a program and send you whatever quantity you need to your door each week. (So that would be laziness/convenience. LOL!)
the ones in vegas (petco, petsmart) sell pets. maybe not dogs, but lots of small animals and ferrets from marshal farms (have heard it is basically a ferret mill), various reptiles and birds. Maybe this is what was meant by pets.PetCo doesn't sell pets, they have an adoption center and they allow adoption groups to use their facilities to ADOPT out pets. All pets at PetCo locations are the property of non profit rescue groups just an FYI.
Oh yes I apologize, yes they sell fish and mice, however I am not sure of any other way to acquire those pets, I have yet to see a mouse rescue or a fish rescue or a guinie pig rescue, etc. I bought my son's fish from PetSmart, he's very happy and healthy.the ones in vegas (petco, petsmart) sell pets. maybe not dogs, but lots of small animals and ferrets from marshal farms (have heard it is basically a ferret mill), various reptiles and birds.

But I have seen ferret and rabbit rescues, so I'll give it to PetsMart, they do not sell either of those animals.
Tractor Supply sells a lot of Pedigree and their own brand which is probably worse than Purina. They have a large variety of Nutro, Diamond, Iams and SD, they recently started getting Taste of the Wild. Their cat food options are horrid, I don't buy any cat food there ever. They sell really cheap cat food for barn cats.Yeah, my mom lives in a tiny town outside of a small town in the middle of nowhere in Nevada and the only place she can get even decent food (Nutro) is at a tiny feed store that's only open when she works during the week and on Saturdays, but she still gets it. It's definitely hard to get good dog kibble in a small town without paying exorbitant shipping prices but it's better than what she was feeding them: Purina Dog Chow.
