Default Dog Food in Mexico

Does anyone have any information about dog food in Mexico? I usually feed Taste of the Wild and my dog loves it, but I am unable to find that here. For the last month I have been feeding him Pedigree kibble and wet food. He hates the kibble and I do not think that it is the best diet for him. Does anyone have a suggestion for me?

Nothing eh? I guess I am going to have to start cooking. --and I would have to cook because I do not think that a raw diet is a good idea in Mexico. I do not want my baby to get salmonella or some other horrible thing.

I know many of our Canadian members order online from the U.S..Don't know how cost effective that is for you.....I also don't know how reliable the Mexican post office is either! I live close to the border, in San Diego. Traveled to Mexico a lot in the 'old days' before you needed a passport!Hahaha!!!!

If that is the best brand of food you are able to find for your pup down there, I'd probably go with the homecooked route as well.

Thanks! I have read some stuff about shipping food, but I hear it is extremely expensive. I am not sure that it is cost effective. I am in Mexico City so I am really far away from the border as well.

Ha ha! I know! My baby is so precious I can't even stomach feeding him more of it (after I read the review). I really want to avoid giving him low quality protein with corn fillers.

I can help you as I live in latin america, I know finding a good brand is really hard.

I agree wit the raw or the homecooked but if you still want to feed a better kibble then you can go to a petshop, a vet or a pet boutique.


In those places you can find better brands, maybe they are not the premiun from the us, they are of decent quality at least is better than pedigree.

You can get pro-pac, proplan, eukanuba, science diet, and royal canin.

In wish state are you located? here are some shops were you can find this types of kibble, you can see if there's a store near you.

Oh thanks so much! I am in Mexico City D.F.
I have been to the Liverpool store, but I was unaware that they sold things like dog food. I thought they just sold clothes. I will check it out.

I have tried the Royal Canin, but it really gives him gas and he doesn't like the taste anyway. My next try will be the Eukanuba as there is a vet down the street that is advertising it.

I think, ideally, that I will cook my own food and then supplement with the best kibble that I can get. There is a Tianges (I hope that is the spelling) on Wednesdays just outside my apartment and I usually pick up a precut vegetable blend of potatoes, carrots and peas. I will get some meat from the butcher and then make him a stew with these ingredients. The vegetable blend will really cut down on my prep time so making my own food will be no hassle at all.

Ha ha! If this works out I will really miss that vegetable blend when I go back to Canada. I have never seen anything so fresh and handy as these premade veg blends. I just throw them into a pot and they make great stews and soups.

I just hope that I can find some Omega oils for him.

Glad to help!

Yeah, the Liverpool stores have a lot of stuff, they are pretty big mostly the ones at the shopping malls.

Good luck in finding an easy spot for the kibble, that vet store sounds nice, I like how in the latest years the vets here in latin america are becoming more educated in nutrition, now I see them lecturing when people use foods like beneful, dog chow, pedigree, etc..

This is making a huge progress since a couple of years ago the only foods you could find were those low quality kibble, now they are carring and promoting better brands, maybe in a few years we can have the premium brands from the US.

I know what you say wit the fresh food at the markets, years ago when I made my first trip to the US (I suppose is the same for Canada) I was shocked to see the green section of the supermarkets full of canned and air tight packaged veggies (and wit preservatives) since in our markets and super markets you can find them most of them loose and even wit the dirt from the ground still on.

When you return to Canada, maybe you can search for one of those food markets /supermarkets for latinos wit imported products from here, since Canada is now having softer laws for latinos to go to work they are now traveling there.

Adding the cooked food to boost the kibble is a great idea, for my toy poodle I make a cooked topper.

I use veggies and meat, like ground beef or chicken, also I use liver he loves it.

Here's a link were I explain how I make the topper Homemade kibble topper recipe
