*If you believe that there is an issue beyond your pet simply not liking their food, supplement and/or treat, and you are concerned that there is a potential problem or 'defect' with the product, we request you contact the manufacturer directly. The companies that we represent are ethical and responsible, and they take great pride in providing a product of superior quality. If there is a problem, they will want to hear from you directly, so they can ask all the questions necessary to evaluate the situation, firsthand. Feedback is important to these companies so they can continue providing the best product possible. You can find the contact information for every company on the package. Please have the package, including the 'lot #' readily available when contacting them.
*It is important to note that dogs and cats, just like us, will have preferences, likes and dislikes, and not every pet will like, or do well on every food. That does not mean that the there is anything wrong with the product. Your pets are unique individuals. If you are finding it a challenge to introduce new foods or treats and your pet is being 'picky' or 'stubborn', we have a great article to help you out (You can read it here). We also welcome you to stop by either location -- we will be happy to provide even more suggestions and solutions! We want you, and your pet, to be happy and healthy!
*It is important to us that we can guarantee there has been no break in the chain of supply from manufacturer to customer. Our reputation (and the reputation of our products) depends on this security standard.
We want to foster 'Conscious Consumerism' and discourage 'Return Culture' which has become so prevalent in our society, as it is wasteful, selfish and disrespectful to all parties involved, including animals and our planet. It is also wasteful and it 'dis-honours' the animals that gave their lives to make species-appropriate food for our carnivores. Animals are not a simple commodity.
