You are what you eat -and it's as true for our pets as it is for us
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 13, 2007
Pet owners who can't bear the worry of feeding their beloved animals mass-produced pet food after the recent poisoning scare and recall are turning to Darwin's Natural Pet Products (http://www.darwinspet.com).
Darwin's Natural Pet Products made from meat and organic vegetables, and consumers can have their dog and cat's meals delivered directly to their doors. Company Founder Gary Tashjian says that customers have been calling daily and sending emails to express gratitude that they are free from the worries that many pet owners are suffering in light of the national pet food recall.
Tashjian's mission is to offer convenient, affordable real food for pets. This is good news for those who seek healthy alternatives right now as the national pet food recall creates continued consumer unrest and concern.
One of the things that sets Darwin's apart is the convenience of home delivery. Given today's busy lifestyles, home delivery offers a meaningful benefit. In addition, since Darwin's is delivered direct to consumers from the manufacturer, the prices tend to be significantly lower than similar products sold in stores.
Tashjian says that pet owners who are considering making food for their pets need to be aware of the potential drawbacks of home-cooked meals:
- A poorly formulated diet may do more harm than good to the pet. Pet owners need to research their recipes to assure that they are complete and balanced.
- It takes a large commitment of time and effort to shop and prepare a pet's meals yourself. Most pet owners quickly tire of the task.
Tashjian says, "For those who are worried about commercial food and not ready to make the leap to making their pets' meals themselves, we offer a great alternative." Tashjian says that many of his customers used to make their own pets' meals, yet they now find it more convenient and affordable to purchase Darwin's products instead. He says that Darwin's typical customers care about quality and are comfortable paying a bit more to get it. They understand the connection between what you eat and your health. They will pay more of their disposable income to have quality food. They really appreciate the convenience, as well. They just put the food in the fridge, defrost, and put it in a bowl.
"You are what you eat -and it's as true for our pets as it is for us," Tashjian says," adding, "Yet we've become a 'fast-food nation' of pet owners, feeding our pets food that is designed more for our convenience than their nutrition. Our dogs have the exact same digestive systems and nutritional needs as their wolf ancestors. And, like their ancestors, our pets thrive on food in its natural state - real meat and vegetables, not processed meals, grains and cereals."
The company offers free home delivery from Everett to Tacoma. "We ship anywhere in the lower 48 states and have shipped to Alaska on occasion. The majority of business comes from the Puget Sound region," Tashjian says. Growth has been fueled by word of mouth and referrals from satisfied customers. That growth has increased recently as a result of the increased concerns associated with the nationwide pet food recall. Visit http://www.darwinspet.com to learn more and place your order.
