Support Your Local Animal Shelters--Buy Stella & Chewy's in April

Feeding Friends Campaign

Stella & Chewy’s, along with Middlewest Pet Products, are offering a Feeding Friends Campaign!

Six percent of all purchases of Stella & Chewy’s products in the month of April will be donated to a local shelter.

Proceeds from our Mukwonago store will assist Lakeland Animal Shelter and proceeds from our Pewaukee store will aid Humane Animal Welfare Society - HAWS of Waukesha.

Please take advantage of this easy way to give to two great local shelters!


Common Pet Food Myths

In this first of a three part article, Dr. Becker teaches how species appropriate food can extend your pet’s life and debunks some common pet feeding myths.

How often have you heard a pediatrician say, “Never feed your baby anything but X brand of baby food, because feeding a homemade diet could be dangerous to your child’s health?” Never. But you do hear it often in the veterinary world.

Or how about this one: “Switching your brand of baby food could lead to GI problems, so feed only one brand or type of baby food to your children for the rest of their lives to avoid GI problems.” You would never hear this, either, from a competent pediatrician. And yet, you hear this type of advice all the time in the veterinary industry. It’s startling to me to know that entire generations of people actually believe pets must have “pet food” to be healthy.
