A popular saying goes, “Personal experience is the best teacher.” That doesn’t mean, however, that we can’t learn from the personal experience of others.
Nadine Joli-Coeur and her husband, Biff Picone, benefit other pet owners by sharing their experience in restoring the health of their dog, Callie. Callie was adopted from the local SPCA and suffered from severe allergies and painful hot spots. Even after multiple trips to the vet and changing her diet, Nadine and Biff noted very limited relief for Callie. Researching pet food brands commonly found in stores led to the discovery that poor-quality food manifests itself in a variety of ways:
- Biting and chewing at itchy paws
- Dry, flaky skin
- Hot spots
- Persistent ear infections
- Poor digestion
- Weakened immune system
- Joint pain
Nadine and Biff realized the need to seek out natural alternatives to find relief for Callie, and later felt compelled to share their discovery with other pet owners.
Natural Pawz opened its doors in 2005 to provide the Houston pet community with a source to obtain natural pet foods, treats and supplements. The myth that natural pet foods are more costly than commercial brands is easily dispelled with logical arguments such as fewer vet bills and decreased food consumption, since natural products are more satisfying. The most compelling reason is that you’ll have a happier, healthier, better-behaved pet as a result of reducing processed ingredients in their diet. Associates at any of their 15 Houston-area locations will gladly discuss your pet’s dietary needs and offer recommendations to assure a healthy and active lifestyle for your pet. Natural Pawz spa services are available at several of their locations, making sure your pet looks as good as it feels. Locations without spa services can still assist you in selecting the best all-natural spa products for your pet.
Natural Pawz is heavily involved with the community. They participate each month in various pet-related events and with local pet rescue groups at their different locations. Nadine even finds time to write a nutritional column for Texas Dogs & Cats magazine and is often quoted in national pet publications about natural alternatives for pets. Not surprisingly, Natural Pawz has been recognized nationally and locally as a leading retailer in natural pet care products.
One thing is for sure … your personal experience with Natural Pawz will be a positive one, for you and your pet!
