With the convenience of online shopping nowadays and the numerous online stores sprouting out, it’s hard to find a good website that you can get a wide variety of pet supplies. I’ve recently discovered this website https://www.kohepets.com.sg which offers a huge variety of pet supplies from pet food to supplements, toys and bath products etc. and it is not limited to cats & dogs, the website even has pet supplies for small pets like chinchillas, birds & hamsters! You can imagine the amount of time I spent surfing that website like a kid in a candy store looking at what I can spoil my doggies with. As most of you know I’m a proud mama to 2 fur-kids Moscow (the Cream Retriever) & Mika (the Shiba Inu), both 9 years of age. Furthermore, Kohepets offers free 2-day express shipping for orders above SGD$60 which isn’t hard to accomplish – a 30lb bag of dry kibbles for Moscow & Mika to last them 1.5 months is easily over the minimum spending.
Being a typical bargain hunter, the first tab that I clicked on is the SALE tab, where I found great deals in dog food and offers of free samples to add to your cart (who doesn’t like freebies?).
One of the trusted brands of dog food that I usually get – Wellness CORE Grain Free dry kibbles – is on promotion! Purchasing a bag of 24lb bag comes with 2 cans of grain-free canned food at $132.80. I try to maintain a healthy balanced diet for Moscow & Mika (aka M&M) so that they can live a long life together and only feed them grain-free kibbles. Grain-free dog food is known to benefit your pups in:
- better digestion of food hence reduced stool amount
- more energy
- less shedding
- healthier skin
- shinier coat
- less doggy farts
Although grain-free food tends to be more costly, I find it well worth it as you can’t put a price on your dog’s health. (think about it – a fancy meal costs more than a big bag of dog food to last your pup for a month or two)
On their main homepage, I noticed another promotion on raw dehydrated dog food. I decided to spoil M&M and added Stella & Chewy’s Simply Venison Dinner Patties Freeze-Dried Dog Food to the cart. Venison is a meat that is rarely found fresh in Singapore or Hong Kong and I would love M&M to enjoy it other than their usual fresh minced beef or pork that I would cook for them in addition to their dry kibbles. Hence, freeze dried venison is a good and healthy meat alternative for them.
Moscow is a cream retriever which comes under the golden retriever family. Most golden retriever dog owners would know that this breed is prone to hip problems which comes with age. Moscow recently turned 9 in December which means she’s now in her middle-age to senior years. I’ve started Moscow on her daily glucosamine intake since 2 years back to help keep her hips in check. It seems to be working as she’s still very active and runs around like a puppy (certainly doesn’t behave her age) on her daily walks. Therefore, Excel Joint Care Glucosamine is a must to upkeep Moscow’s regular supply.
Moscow is showing off her balancing skills here!
Next, I needed to look for a dog shampoo for Mika as hers is running low.(Moscow goes to the groomers to get her monthly trims, so only Mika gets bathed at home) When I browsed under the “Grooming” tab for shampoos & conditioners, I was totally spoilt for choice! There was 439 options to choose from. After going through all the options, I decided to use what the Mr. recommended which is also on their best-seller list – Earthbath Oatmeal & Aloe Shampoo which is known for relief of itchy and dry skin which Mika gets from time to time especially during shedding season.
A lot of dog owners think that dogs have to shower every few days which is actually a big no-no. Dogs need to build up their natural oils on their coat to keep their fur healthy and water resistant and constant showering removes it all and after regular constant baths, they will stop producing these oils all together which will then make them stink up more easily. Instead, regular brushing to massage and stimulate these oils and to spread them evenly on their coats is better for dogs than showering them ever so often. I only shower Mika every 1-2 months, and I can vouch that her skin is healthy and she doesn’t smell bad.
and I finally decided to stop my shopping spree and submit the order. Kohepets did live up to the 2 day delivery promise and the goods were delivered to my doorstep promptly. I placed my order in on a Tuesday night and the delivery guy SMSed me on Thursday morning to confirm the delivery timing for Thursday evening.
I am now looking at other items to purchase on their website. Time to stock up on their Frontline supplies! 😉
