We are committed to independent pet stores.
You won’t find our foods in mega pet stores because we believe innovation thrives in independent stores, where the focus is on health and nutrition.
Thinking of adding to your fur family? Adding a dog or cat sibling can end up being the best thing you ever did for your pet. Many cats and dogs benefit from having another animal in the house, because when the humans are too busy for a nap or play session, someone else is around.
Not all dogs are food motivated during training, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find one that doesn’t scamper with excitement when they hear the rustle of the treat bag. Dogs have a well-earned reputation for obsession with eating, which makes pet treats a powerfully effective tool to communicate approval to your dog. When you think of it that way, treats can do a lot to build the human-canine bond. As rewarding as they are to the dog, the human also gets a hit of rewarding serotonin for making that furball so glad.
For a pet parent, throwing a shindig for your dog presents the perfect excuse to celebrate another year together. It can be as big or low key as you choose. You could host a gathering to celebrate (complete with cute photos of your dog wearing a birthday hat), or quietly give your dog a special meal; there’s no wrong way to turn it into a special occasion.
When your cat uses their claws to scratch your favorite sofa, it’s annoying. But resist the urge to take it personally. No, they’re not adding unwanted texture to the table legs to get revenge for a recent vet visit. Even the smartest cat probably fails to understand that cat etchings just don’t go with our decor. Because we connect with our animals so deeply, it can be easy to assign human-like motives where none exist.
When cats show signs of a sensitive stomach, pet parents can pretty easily become complacent. Perhaps we get used to seeing them cough up hairballs every couple weeks, leading us to believe stomach irritation is just part of being a cat. But cat puke, when it doesn’t have any signs of hairball, can be a symptom of something more serious.
Cats have a well-earned reputation for needing their beauty rest. The average feline gets in 15 hours of sleep a day. However, kittens and elderly cats put in as much as 20 hours a day.
