A couple hundreds of years later and dog biscuits are healthier and more nourishing than ever!

Here at Barkery, we want to make sure you’re choosing the perfect treat for your pet. Like every food you buy, for either yourself or your dog, ingredients are the most important to check.

Venture into the Barkery to find organic, all natural dog biscuits like Healthy Hemp Biscuits, Barkworthies, Himalayan Dog Chews, OC Raw Dog Meaty Bones, and more. Ensure you are feeding what’s best for your best friend by stopping in your local Barkery and speaking with a pet nutritionist today!

National Cat Health Month

February is National Cat Health Month and the experts at The Barkery are here to talk about an important topic in this category – feeding! As an obligate carnivore, your cat was born to hunt. Research exploring the connection between hunting and eating habits is changing the way we feed our kitties – ultimately leading to positive outcomes in health and behavior.

In their natural habitat, cats spend over 75% of their waking hours hunting for food. Experts say our kitties need to hunt, catch, and play with at least 5 small meals a day! Some proven benefits of hunting for food include: 

  • Prevention of bad behavior. When cats are not able to act on their natural hunting instinct, they redirect that behavior into aggression and disobedience. Practicing their natural hunting instinct improves your cats overall mood and may even preserve your furniture!
  • Stops the scarf and barf. The cat’s stomach is the size of a ping-pong ball, which also happens to be the size of a mouse. Hunting various small portions of food instead of your cat overeating out of their bowl leads to less scarf and barf!
  • Manages weight. As us humans already know, portion control + exercise = healthy weight. Healthy weight leads to happiness and a longer life span for your kitty!
  • Prevents boredom. When you leave your home, your cat most likely naps, eats and naps again. With the hunting feeder, you will find your cat entertained, spending the day hunting and receiving much-needed exercise!
  • A litter box solution! Cats display stress and anxiety to their humans by peeing outside of their litter box. Hunting feeders ease and alleviate this stress, which eliminates the problem of the litter box turning into the entire floor.

Ready to switch your cat from bowl feeding to hunting? Doc & Phoebe’s Indoor Hunting Feeder is a perfect, fun and easy way to nourish your cat as nature intended! The veterinarian-designed feeder by Doc & Phoebe can help control scarf and barf, diminish anxiety and destructive behavior, and hinder litter box issues.

So how does this work exactly? The feeding system comes with five plastic feeders, each with a detachable, washable mouse “skin” that imitates the feel of real pray. Portion your cat’s food into the five different feeders and hide them around the home. At first, hide the mice in locations that are easier to discover while your kitty gets used to this new process feeding process. Gradually, start to find more challenging spots to hide the feeders to keep your cat’s interest.

Using their enhanced sense of smell, your cat will hunt to find their Doc & Pheobe Indoor Hunting Feeder! They will hunt it, grab it and toss it around until the perfect amount of food spills out. Throughout the day, your cat will repeat this process and stay physically and mentally stimulated while simultaneously eating the properly portioned meals you have prepared!

Now’s the time to make the switch from bowl feeding to hunting! Stop by either Brookside Barkery & Bath location and pick up your Doc & Pheobe’s Indoor Hunting Feeder today!

February is Pet Dental Health Month! When was the last time you had your furry family member’s pearly (or not-so-pearly) whites checked? Don’t turn your nose up to your pet’s bad breath – your pet’s dental health is just as important as your own!

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of oral disease by the age of three. Some key indicators that your dog or cat may have dental disease include:

  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • Discolored/tarter covered teeth
  • Discomfort when touched within the mouth area
  • Excessive drooling/dropping of food when chewing
  • Bleeding from the mouth
  • Loss of appetite/weight loss

Fortunately, with education and awareness, more pets are getting the dental care they need. Preventative dental care is the best way to help prevent severe pet health problems in the future.

During the month of February, the Barkery is offering 25% off all dental health products plus ½ price teeth brushing with the purchase of any other spa/grooming service!

Stop by either Brookside or Lee’s Summit Barkery location all February long and take the steps you need to prevent oral disease in your pet. It’s time to get to brushing!

Brookside Barkery Pet Transformations of 2018 – Part 3

As part 3 of our Pet Transformation of 2018 at Brookside Barkery, we got to know a little more about customer David G. and his experience with the Wellness Assessment Kit.

“I bought the Wellness Assessment Kit through Brookside Barkery for my dog who was having bad allergic reactions,” said David. “We quickly did the test and sent off the kit to get processed. Within a week, we had our results and found that we had been feeding our dog food that his body just couldn’t handle.”

With a Pet Wellness Assessment Kit from Brookside Barkery, you’ll be able to see up to 300 food and environmental factors that your dog may be sensitive to. This allows you to know EXACTLY what is causing your pet’s allergic reactions.

“Brookside Barkery helped us every step of the way and found the perfect brand of food that would fit our dog’s needs,” said David. “Sure enough, with time, our dog was happy and healthy again.”

The Pet Wellness Assessment Kit is easy and convenient. All you have to do is swab your pet’s saliva, collect a small hair sample, and mail it in. Best of all, you’ll get the results in only a wee or two! Once you test your pet, Brookside Barkery will provide a free Nutrition Consultation to work with you and with the results of the test, guiding your selections on food, treats, and supplements to make sure we’re giving your pet exactly what they need.

“I highly recommend the Wellness Assessment Kit,” said David.” Whether you see signs of allergies or not, you never know what could be affecting your dog internally. It’s cheap, it’s easy, it’s fast and it works!”
