Welcome To A New Pet Food Retail Experience

The founders of Growlies® wanted a pet health food store that didn’t have what Neal calls walls of candy coated cereal. No kibble is sold in the store at all. Growlies® has all the other pet food options Freeze Dried, Dehydrated, Canned, Cooked, and Raw. We also have no products sourced from China and no Wheat, Corn, or Soy food or treats.

Benefits of Fresh Foods

Improved Digestion

Fresh pet foods are easier to digest than heavily processed dry pet foods. Raw living foods are the easiest foods to digest as they are still in the form that our pets are evolved to manage.

Allergies / Intolerances Reduced

Being able to reduce the number of ingredients with a natural species appropriate diet reduces the uncertainty of what your pet may be reacting to. The simpler and fresher the food, much like for us, the healthier the food.

Strong Immune System Supports

Using products like living foods, digestive enzymes, and probiotics can really benefit your pets. The foundation of the nutrition we get from our food and the response to them begins in the gut. The healthier we make the gut, the healthier we make the animal.

Maintain Optimum Weight

Pets on fresh foods diets like raw commonly normalize their weight. It’s far easier to manage a pets weight feeding nutrient dense low carbohydrate fresh food diets than starch based dry food diets.

Naturally Clean Teeth & Healthy Gums

Giving your pet the opportunity to eat through a size and species appropriate raw bone is the best toothbrush we can offer. Masticating through bone and sinew is how your pet was evolved to brush their teeth. Come in and lets discuss your pet.

No Doggy Stink

When you feed your pet a species appropriate diet it’s amazing how quickly the dog stink can go away. Try it for two months and see what you and your pet thinks. It can’t hurt to try it.
