Often people ask us if we are a pet shop?
In fact as we do not sell animals , it is defined more as a
specialty boutique for dogs and cats .
It is interesting how the concept of specialty shops is still
fairly new in Quebec.
We are not much to offer health food and quality products
without sale of animals.
When we come to put our store in directories and the Animal
World website , no appropriate categories and we're forced us
to choose the "Pet shop" section.
Moreover , we must add frequently on our advertisements " No
sale of animals ! " to avoid many phones of people looking to
purchase a cat or dog.
However, when a call is received in this sense, we are pleased
to recall the existence of puppy mills and to propose
alternatives and ethical ways to find his next mate or to
consider shelters and ethical breeders.
And what makes us happy is seeing more and more clients who
admit not shop where there are sales of animals.
And this trend only intensified !
In fact, did you know that some European countries , states
and cities even have laws or regulations that prohibit the
sale of cats and dogs in pet shops ?
This is often called " Holistic " food.
In fact, this name is used for some years in various field and
of course, frequently at the dog and cat nutrition.
But , what is the definition of " HOLISTIC " ?
The word is from greek ολoς (holos) and means WHOLE.
Holism is a system of thought which patterns for which a
living being can not be known until this being is considered
and apprehended in its totality , not in when studying its
It is therefore not surprising that this term is also popular
with food manufacturers because by using it, we want to show
that this food is developed by considering the animal as a
whole to make him feel better and that it remains healthy as
long as possible .
Warning! The word Holistic remains only a word , and the fact
that it is used , does not necessarily mean that the food in
question is Healthy !
We must then educate , do research , and of course read the
ingredient list and ask yourself a few questions:
Is there any by-products ?
Is this food contains less suitable grain such as corn
or wheat ?
Is that it is produced from fresh or frozen ingredients?
Its ingredients are they imported ?
Is there any preservatives ? Are they good ?
How fish have they been preserved ?
Is the protein level enough?
In conclusion, it is important to choose a complete food but
also of good quality and of course, adapted to our companion.
In our store, these brands of food (raw or dried) were all
previously selected carefully before putting them in the shop.
Be sure we select the the most healthy food for you that meets
the needs of your pet.
