Your pantry shelves are stocked and your freezer has never been more full. However, between picking up paper towels, entertaining kids and disinfecting everything, make sure you don’t forget about the one blissfully unaware family member: Your pet.
If you can’t venture out to grab food for Fido and Fluffy, you can still order it online to be delivered straight to your door. Be sure to think ahead, though — while most retailers aren’t experiencing a shortage of pet food, shipping and delivery might still be delayed.
Whether your pets prefer kibble, wet food or something freeze-dried, keep at least two weeks’ worth of food on hand, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Don’t forget essentials like cat litter and cleaning supplies, too.
The ASPCA also suggests creating a pet emergency kit, which includes at least 30 days’ worth of any medication. In the event that you become unable to care for your fur baby in the short- or long-term, make sure a designated caregiver is available to take over.
Keep scrolling for the retailers you can rely on for all your pet necessities.
Chewy has just about every food brand your pup or kitty already loves, from Blue Buffalo to Merrick, as well as essentials for small pets, birds and even horses. Save up to 30 percent on your first order if you opt to get automatic deliveries, too! The retailer notes that delivery times are taking longer than usual, so prepare accordingly.
Not only does Walmart carry top brands including Rachael Ray Nutrish and Nature’s Recipe, but the retailer also carries plenty of storage containers to keep Fido’s food fresh. Filter by your pet’s specific needs, like heart health, weight management or dietary restrictions. While next-day delivery is no longer available, most orders are eligible for free delivery over $35.
Petco carries food from most major brands, including Whole Hearted and Science Diet. The retailer also has plenty of must-haves for fish owners, including filters, food, and fish tank essentials.

Pet food isn’t cheap, and it’s even worse on your wallet when you’re stocking up. Luckily, PetFlow has dozens of brands available for pups and kitties, and many are even marked down. According to the brand, deliveries might take two to three days longer than usual.
Whether your pup prefers canned food or your finicky cat will only eat dry food and nothing else, Petsmart has it all. The retailer also has a massive sale section chock full of deals for every type of pet. Save five percent on every auto-ship order.
