Cook For Your Pup: Mixing Raw Food Event

February 7th, 2014 at 2:22 pm

Cooking for your dog doesn’t have to be difficult! Join us on Saturday, February 7th from 12pm to 2pm at our Funny Fur River Oaks store as we show you how simple it can be to prepare customized meals for your pets!

Raw pet food diets have been shown to help animals with allergies, skin problems, digestive issues, arthritis, and certain degenerative diseases. It also helps with maintaining a healthy weight, produces smaller stools, gives the coat a lustrous shine and helps with cleaning teeth and overall oral health.

While we have hosted informational pet food events in the past, this will be the first event where we demonstrate at-home mixed recipes!

Customers who attend the event will receive free samples and personalized advice from Pet Nutrition Specialist Michelle Lingan. Well-behaved, leashed pets are welcome at the event.
