USA for Your Pet’s Health
JERKY RECALL: The Milo’s Kitchen, Wagging Tails and Canyon Creek jerkies that was making dogs sick have been recalled.
Susie goes to great lengths to ensure that anything edible in our store is ONLY USA sourced (or another country with stricter regulations than we have such as Canada). We will never carry anything edible that comes from China.
Also, as long as we’re discussing safety measures for your pet, just a reminder to always keep your food or treats in their original packaging. Food bags especially are designed for optimal freshness of the product, and if there ever is a recall or a problem with your product you will have the relevant lot and date codes to identify the bag for tracking purposes.
If you have a food storage container, just set your food bag down into it. This also will keep your container cleaner, prevent you from having to wash and dry it thoroughly between bags, and keep cross-contamination to a minimum.

New from BFF…grain free pouches for your cat!
From their website:
Super-Safe People Food Processing Standards - BFF is produced in a facility that also produces food for people. The factory operates at international human food processing standards, including that of the super-strict British Retail Consortium (BRC), and the pet food processing must pass BRC scrutiny.
The Ingredients - The main ingredient is a red meat or dark meat from tuna, primarily skipjack or bonito, two smaller and highly sustainable species. The cuts contain lean muscle meat and have a taste and aroma that drives kitties wild! Amongst the various flavors, we include value added toppers such as boneless skinless chicken breast, duck, lamb, salmon, shrimp and pumpkin.
Wild Caught and Dolphin Safe - And speaking of kitties going wild for BFF, all of the fish used is wild caught, with the exception of tilapia. The catches of fish are also certified to have been safe for dolphins and turtles, as certified by the ships’ captains.
Gravy and Aspic - BFF is available in cans and pouches, and all flavors deliver high moisture. The cans come in both gravy and aspic, and the pouches are all in gravy. The gravy is what you’d expect it to be…simply Cat-tastic for those kitties that love to lick! The aspic is similar to Jello in that it starts off as a powder that is mixed with water, but when cooked, it takes on a gel like substance. It is great for “protecting” the ingredients in that you are able to see and identify the ingredients that we use.
Complete AAFCO Nutrient Profile and Feeding Instructions - BFF Cat Food Recipes are all formulated to meet the nutritional guidelines established by the AAFCO Nutrient Profiles for Adult Maintenance. Remember to feed your friend according to their age, size and activity level, about 1.0 oz for each pound of bodyweight daily, twice a day if fed alone. And every cat should have access to clean, fresh drinking water.
