Understanding Raw Pet Diets

“What’s Behind the Campaign to Condemn Raw Diets for Pets?” is an article by Dr. Karen Becker of mercola.com’s Healthy Pets that may help you explain or defend your choice on how you feed your pet.

Dr. Becker hopes that if you’re already feeding your pet a fresh, species-appropriate raw diet—and have been successful—that you will disregard the anti-raw positions of the AAHA and AVMA.  These organizations seem to be using the already well-known risks of handling raw meat as their basis for discouraging feeding raw.  Educate yourself!  Read this short article to better understand how this is taken out of context.

If your friends, family or even your vet are howling about the dangers of your pet’s raw diet, this article is a must read!


Newsletter and Birthday Coupon Changes!

Hastened by January’s glitch of the cat coupon going out to many to whom it shouldn’t have (apologies again to everyone who received one erroneously)…we’re introducing some changes in our birthday coupon program, starting in February.

Another one of the perks in our new POS system is to integrate our customers’ birthdays into their profiles.  The computer gives us 5 spaces to gather birth month and name to send out coupons.  This can be for cat, dog, or human birthdays!  At the beginning of the month, a coupon or special offer will be sent out to everyone who has a birthday in that month.

In order for this to happen, we need your help!  Due to the way our birthday program is currently running, we don’t have the option to merge the information into our POS computers.  Please email us at waggingtails@wi.rr.com with the subject line “Birthday info”, and include the name your account is under in the register, the email address you want us to use, and up to 5 names and birth months of you and your pets. 

You can also write it down, and drop it off next time you are in the store if you prefer.  

Beginning in February, the newsletter will be sent out through the POS registers only, so make sure we have your current email address in your customer profile on the register!

Thanks for your patience and assistance!
