As mother and daughter we have had family pets for over 40 years and we have always struggled to find all the food and products we wanted in one place. After spending a small fortune on petrol travelling around we decided that together we would open up a local pet shop in Gosport stocking all the natural and unique products that we wanted plus more.
We developed a keen interest in diet and nutrition as with experience we could see a lot of the common problems that are found in our pets has been due to the foods we give them , Problems such as smelly breath, skin issues – red, itchy and dry skin. Other problems such as bad wind, ear infections and anal glands all can come from intolerances with the food.
A word from Denise - The Mother
"It has been fantastic to finally open up a pet shop that stocks all the natural products that we have been looking for.
We are so proud to be able to bring new ranges to the area and to work with other local pet business.
We love helping people with their pets and having a good chat."
A word from Kelly - The Daughter
"We have really tried hard to create a nice, friendly informed shop to help provide our customers with the best products for their pets at an affordable price. We want the shop to feel homely and to fit in with the natural ethos, something I hope you'll agree we have achieved."
