Choosing a Dog Food:
The Paw Spa's "Dogma" is that all pets should be healthy and happy. Their love is unconditional, so as responsible pet owners, we should offer them the best quality of life we can afford them. This starts with the foods we feed them. We believe that dogs and cats deserve to eat pure, simple, minimally processed foods – the way nature intended. We consistently seek out the best quality foods and supplements we can find. We do our homework on the brands and their processes, to ensure we offer only the best for your pet.
A balanced, raw, diet is the best food you can feed your pet. Raw means the food is unadulterated and still contains all the enzymes and nutrients that are typically destroyed during cooking or other types of processing. This food has been proven to be nutritionally complete and "balanced" for all life stages. Owners and veterinarians tell us a raw diet has helped improve appetite and digestion, healthy skin and coat, stamina and vitality, and helps support a healthy immune system. These foods are found in our freezer section at The Paw Spa, and they include Stella and Chewy's, Small Batch, Primal, Vital Essentials, Answers, and many more. Many of these are also offered in a Freeze Dried version, such as Grandma Lucy's, Stella and Chewy's, Primal, The Honest Kitchen, Steve's Real Food for Dogs, Small Batch, Vital Essentials, Sojo's, and more.
Next we would recommend a premium grade, canned or dry food. We offer several varieties of each, and all meet the basic nutritional needs of your pet. When you are in a hurry or maybe you are on a budget, these foods offer a great alternative. Our brands are far more balanced and complete than the grocery store kibble that tends to offer very little in the way of nutrition for your pet. These foods typically "cook out" the very ingredients your pet needs most. At The Paw Spa you'll find reputable brands such as Taste of the Wild, NutriSource, Orijen, Acana, Fromm, PetCurean, Canidae, Diamond, Open Farm, Weruva, Pure Vita, and more.
We encourage you to do your own research to find the foods that best meet your pets needs. If you have any questions, come by the store and we can show you the many different types of food we offer. We are a Certified Pet Food Nutritionist and we're happy to share our knowledge, experience, & recommendations with you.
