Where to buy reasonably priced dog food?

Hi,

I just moved to Zurich with my Labrador. Where can I find reasonably priced quality dog food? In the US, we used to consume Nature's Domain from Costco.

Thank you.

zooplus.de
The delivery takes a few days, but the low prices are worth it.

Re: Where to buy reasonably priced dog food?

There is so much hype about dog food I find it incredible.

Unless there is a medical condition requiring it, most dogs will be fine on basic kibbles, with the odd mineral supplement if needed. We used to breed labs and they will eat things that will make a rat puke. Special dietary needs aside, I would try yours on a mid range kibble and see how your dog gets on. For the last few years ours (we only have 3 labs now) have been on a light food from Fressnapf, they go crazy for it, it's easy to get as they are pretty much everywhere (and they deliver) and doesn't break the bank either

Thank you.
Do you know if you order from zooplus.de, whether the shipping into Zurich is tedious? That is, import documents, etc? Or is it very simply and just pay the shipping fee?

I looked at zooplus.ch but the price seem better from zooplus.de.

I always keep my order below 100 EUR and I never had to pay any customs fees or go through import documents. I ordered many times and it was usually 3-5 working days to get my package, but to be honest, my latest shipment arrived in CH on Monday and nobody took care of it till Friday (the packages are sent by DHL with tracking number).
