Grain-Free Salmon Petbrosia

   We were recently offered the opportunity to try Petbrosia’s new Grain-Free Salmon Dog food.  Our previous experience with their dog food was definitely positive, so we were eager to get a new flavor.  Bentley and Pierre love getting their food delivered right to our front door.  They sometimes seem rather shocked with the big brown truck passes our house without stopping.  Since they are the ones that ate the new food, I’ll let them take the reins of this review.

"Even the box smells yummy!"

Bentley: “Thanks Mom, but since we are talking about salmon, shouldn’t we be taking the reel of this review?  *snicker  You know how much Pierre and I enjoy giving our honest, unbiased review of the products that we receive.  Where is my fluffy friend?”
Pierre: “I’m here.  I was busy doing my research on the use of salmon in dog food.  One of us needs to be well versed in the facts.  I mean, how much do you know about salmon?”
Bentley: “I know that it is delicious.  Mom and Dad eat it all of the time.  They have it grilled, baked, and something called salmon croquettes.  I’ve begged more than a few pieces in my day.  It is high time that someone decided to make a food especially for us dogs.  Heck, Petbrosia even makes it for cats!”
Pierre: “That’s correct.  Now, both our dog and cat friends can enjoy the benefits of salmon in

"The pieces are a perfect size!"

their diet.  I feel confident in recommending it them, too.  All of the food Petbrosia makes is antibiotic and hormone-free.  Of course, they never use corn, soy, wheat, gluten, or by-product meal.  If you read the label, the fresh animal protein source is always the first ingredient.  What they do add is Glucosamine and Chondroitin to help us maintain healthy joints.  I told you that I had been studying!”
Bentley: “You make me proud, Pierre.  All of those fillers are as useless as the “L” in salmon!  Let me tell you what I know about the good folks at Petbrosia.  They use the information that Mom puts in their website about me.  My food is created using stuff a Basset Hound my age, my weight, and with my exercise regimen needs.  It is truly my own personal food, but I did share with you for purposes of this review.  Mom gradually switched us according to the instructions that came with my food.  You can thank me by not pulling my ears when we wrestle.”
Pierre: “I refuse to make promises that I probably won’t keep.  Your ears just fall into my mouth and reflexes make me pull.  I’ll give it the ol’ Westie try though.  *mischievous smile and rapidly wagging tail  Anyway, back to the task at paw.  I love the smaller size of this new salmon food.  It is easier for me to eat and because the pieces are small, it looks like I’m getting more in my bowl.  Besides the salmon, there are wonderful vegetables and fruits.  They add the healthy ones like chickpeas and blueberries inside each piece.”

"I hate to eat in front of y'all, but I can't resist!"

Bentley: “I know that salmon is really easy to digest, its lean, and packed full of nutrients.  Every dog and cat no matter their age or health can benefit from a diet that includes salmon.  People sometimes call salmon a “fatty” fish.  That seems kinda mean to me, but Mom said that it isn’t meant that way.  Salmon is actually a very lean fish, but when they call it “fatty” they are talking about it being high in unsaturated fat and omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids.  Salmon’s fatty acids are incredibly beneficial.  It helps our bodies absorb nutrients; it’s good for our skin and coat, not to mention it supports our heart health.  It is just all-around good for us.  They even have a comparison chart to prove it. Slimdoggy ranks Petbrosia a solid 9 and you know that we trust their opinion.”
Pierre: “That’s good to know.  It looks like you studied up on some salmon facts yourself.  I love

"I have to eat mine now or Bentley will."

that Petbrosia comes straight to our front door.  Gramma can even set up auto-replenish.  That means that we will never run out of food.  Did you know that a nice couple started Petbrosia when their dogs weren’t benefiting from the food they were eating?  They had adopted Mickey and Rosie, two Jack Russell Terrier-Beagle mix puppies from a kill shelter.  Saving those puppies lives makes them heroes in my book.  Then, the pups grew up to be dogs.  Mickey was gaining too much weight while Rosie was getting too skinny.  They were both eating the same food, so their mom started monitoring them very closely.  She’s a veterinarian, so she’s really smart about dogs.  That’s when they came to the realization that dogs each have individual needs.  As such, they should have food specially prepared for them and their own nutritional needs.  That’s why Gramma had to fill out that information about you.”
Bentley: “Yep, they are really cool people and I love their motto, “Every pet is unique.  Their food should be too.”  I know that I am unique from the tip of my nose to the tip of my tail.  Hey Pierre, I have a joke for you.  Why are fish so smart?  You give up?  It’s because they swim in schools!”  *Both of them fall over laughing
Me: “Okay you two, let’s finish up our review.  I have a surprise to announce.  Our friends at Petbrosia have offered a free three-pound bag of their new Grain-Free Salmon dog or cat food to one of our readers!  They also are offering everyone $10 off their first bag of Petbrosia by entering the promotional code: BRB010.  Isn’t that wonderful?”
Bentley: “It sure is, but I kinda wish that you’d let me make the big announcement!  Okay, here’s the deal…everyone needs to enter our Rafflecopter giveaway below and if you want to take advantage of the $10 off deal, just use the code my mom told you.  Hey Pierre!  Let’s give our paws of approval for Petbrosia Grain-Free Salmon.”
Pierre: “Okie dokie!  One paw is our lowest score and five is our highest.  Ready?”
Five Paws!!

We are joining Kol’s Notes and Sugar the Golden Retriever for their Tasty Tuesday blog hop.  These two friends always have terrific recipes and ideas to share.  Hop over and say “hello” then visit the others Tasty Tuesday bloggers.

Every Tuesday we join our friends Dogs ‘N Pawz  and  Talking Dogs on the Tuesday’s Tails blog hop.  These dogs are currently living at PetSavers in Shreveport.  If you would love to meet them, please call at (318) 636-0400.  Otherwise, please share their information on your social media.  Today’s dogs may seem familiar to my regular readers.  C. J. was the first dog that I ever featured on Tuesday’s Tails back in December 2013.  He has been at PetSavers since October of 2008.  That is way too long for this poor guy to be without a home of his very own.  There are several other dogs that have been waiting almost as long as C.J.  Please check the adoptable pets tab at the top of our blog and share them.  Don’t forget to visit our hosts and the other blogs listed that are featuring dogs and cats in need of forever homes.


  1. A while back, there was a great deal on this food so I took advantage of it and ordered some for Shiner. She enjoyed it :) Great review guys! I need to email you before the weekend if you're still coming to Austin so we can meet up at the expo.

  2. I'm happy that salmon is available for pets now too. My 7 stomchs love fish and seafood, think I accidentally swallowed a kitty once what rules now in my tummy. Thanks for a super review!

  3. that sounds seriously good - Reilly has a poultry allergy so finding something without chicken duck or turkey in it is always hard and on top of that he can't have grains either so fish has been staple for many years - we will be looking for this one to try.

  4. Sounds like a great food choice ... And both Cello and Hooch love salmon!

  5. We agree sounds like a great choice and yes every pet is unique. I have salmon fish skin when we have some. Yummy.
    Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Looks like you boys really enjoy that food. Mom doesn't like anything having to do with fish for her or us. Until recently we didn't even get treats with fish in them. Now we have started getting fish in some treats and just love it. Salmon is supposed to be real tasty and fancy, so enjoy!

  7. THAT is an excellent review. Well done. We like Sammin, Too.

  8. We love Petbrosia!!! Great review!
    CJ is gorgeous BTW, sharing!
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  9. That dog food sounds great and know my little pack would love salmon! Great review. Also sharing CJ!

  10. CJ has been at the rescue since 2008! That is a really long time. Hopefully the Tuesday's Tails exposure helps him fond a home.

  11. Great review! Sounds like good stuff. Rita LOVES salmon!

  12. I love that the food is made for each individual!
    Isn't CJ a cutie....I love that he has two different color eyes!

  13. I always thought that the L is salmon was useless, too ;) I loved how individually tailored this food is!

  14. Now that is some good research!!!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  15. WOW! Y'all sure scored some pretty nice yum! Oh, that poor C.J., that is so heartbreaking for that sweet dude. We will share him.

  16. Poor C.J. Breaks my heart :( Sharing.

  17. Sugar loves Salmon. It's her weekend special meal treat. The boys enjoyed it. Happy Tasty Tuesday. Golden Woofs

  18. Well Bentley and Pierre it certainly sounds like a lot of research and love has gone into this food...the pups here get some fresh salmon when we have it as it is fab for their good omega fats..as they are both senior pups the benefits for bones fur and all round good health are fab..so it is great that this is available to pups in this form :) looks like you both enjoyed yourselves doing this review too!! hugs Fozziemum and gang xx

  19. Great review, look at them digging in. Hope C.J gets a home soon.


I'd love to hear from you! Bark back!
