A Health Food Store for Pets!
Holistic Hound is quite unlike any other pet store. It is, quite literally, a health food store for dogs and cats that specializes in natural diets and supplements and holistic health. While it may look like a foofy boutique that specializes in diamond collars or angora sweaters for poodles, it isn’t.
The store is owned by a classically trained homeopath, and she is available for consultations for your dog or cat with specific conditions. The owner is not the only one who can help you! I personally hate going into stores where the clerks know nothing about what they sell. At Holistic Hound, this is not the case. The entire staff is well trained in diets and supplements- they employ former vet techs, herbalists, and other pet professionals to answer the numerous questions from the health conscious public, more helpful hints.
There are four freezers full of raw diets and bones. All the food is corn, wheat, and soy free and free from ingredients from China. There is a significant selection of organic foods. And the supplement section is beyond belief. Looking for a remedy? Chances are they have just the thing. If they don’t carry your food or supplement, ask why. Chances are there is a better alternative or they know something about that brand that you do not!
The treats always have something new- often novel and interesting things that even allergic pooches can enjoy. From ostrich tendons to gator bites and everything in-between, Holistic Hound has domestically made yummy treats for your pet.
Dogs and cats are welcome in the store, and will be given treats upon entering. There is always fresh water available to animals and humans who arrive. The staff is welcoming and helpful without ever being pushy.
Most people expect a much higher price when going to a small store. But Holistic Hound keeps its prices low. The food is just as low or lower than local and national chains. Because the store is so unique, they do a brisk business with a loyal clientele and are able to keep prices low. They just implemented a “customer loyalty” program that rewards its patrons with cash back after spending a certain amount of money, too. And they always have specials and money saving programs from manufacturers, allowing folks to save money when possible. Holistic Hound is totally worth a look! They are open seven days a week, making that an easy thing to do!
