A PARK CITY PET STORE AIMS TO KEEP PETS HEALTHY, FROM THE INSIDE OUT
Holistic, natural, sustainably sourced—they’re marketing buzzwords often found printed on the labels of various foods in a grocery store aisle. That aisle, however, usually isn’t the one displaying pet food. Something the owner of one local pet-based business sees changing.
“Consumers are becoming more and more savvy, forgoing genetically modified ingredients, pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and artificial colors, flavors and preservatives,” says Heide Fowler, owner of Healthy Pets Summit County. “Pet owners are starting to demand the same level of food quality and safety for their pets.”
Market research shows she’s right. In the U.S. alone, the organic food industry is an estimated $50 billion a year business, with many households moving towards buying organic foods. Sales of natural and organic pet food in the United States make up approximately $6 billion of that total. And Kris believes the reasoning is pretty doggone simple. “If you wouldn’t eat something, you probably don’t want you pet eating it either.”
It’s why she opened Healthy Pets Summit County in the summer of 2018. The store offers an array of organic foods, herbal remedies, raw treats and environmentally friendly toys. Grooming services and a self-wash station are also available.
Healthy Pets of Summit County is located in Pine Brook.
