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.

Latest Updates

A veterinarian is your employee. When looking for a new one, interview them, ask questions. Are they owned by a chain of clinics? This is very important to me. If they are, they are likely owned by the brand of pet food they sell.  That means they’re owned by a kibble company and not the… Read More

What Our Customers Say

My Schipperke Alaska will be 15 later this year, and for a long time, despite our efforts, has endured dry skin and carried a few pounds of extra weight. She had also  become reluctant to go for walks and each day had to be persuaded to come with us.

My Shepherd was very picky and rarely ate breakfast. Once we switched to raw he eats every last bite and is actually excited for meal time. Our Staffy has food allergies

Growlies is awesome. I have a dog with food issues and they have been so helpful. I love to feed my dog the best, and they have it available, and they even deliver. Lots of selection, and plenty of knowledge about their products. They love animals, and welcome them in the Store. Love the new location, lots of room.

Just went to Growlies® for the first time and i am completely floored at my experience! The gentleman was friendly and knowledgeable and extremely helpful. He was able to help every customer in the store as well as give me a little tour and info on the store and products. The store was also very clean and well-laid out! I don’t think I will ever be able to go to another store for my pet’s health food needs. Well done!
