Pet parents have been ordering pet food online for years. However, now that we're living in a social distancing world, buying all of your pet food online is the safest way to proceed.
So if you're wondering where to buy pet food online, we're rounding up our favorite online stores along with stores offering pet food deals. A few things to keep in mind as you shop: please don't bulk buy. When you do that, it causes inventory to run out, which means other shoppers will have to wait longer for their food.

In addition, we recommend placing your orders before you need them. Retailers, like Amazon and Chewy, have announced that their deliveries may run a few days late. (Personally, our pet food orders have arrived up to 4 days late, but your mileage may vary).
The good news is that Amazon is prioritizing the delivery of pet food. The e-commerce giant recently announced that it will limit the shipment of non-essential items to its warehouses and in turn prioritize certain items like household supplies and pet supplies/food.
Meanwhile, in an e-mail to customers Petco stated that it's increasing its Repeat Delivery discount from 30% to 35% effective immediately. Customers will also get 10% off when they buy online and pickup in-store. (Petco states that orders will be ready in 2 hours max). The company now offers curbside pickup, so you can order pet food online and pick up in-store without leaving your car.
Editors' Note: In order to prevent any shortages, we highly recommend that you buy only what you need for the short term. This will allow retailers to restock and for others to gain access to these pet products.
