At Patsy’s, we constantly search for new food products that meet our nutritional philosophy. Visit us with your dog and we will customize food recommendations that provide real and wholesome foods with the freshest, highest quality ingredients available.
Most commercial pet foods contain animal by-products, cornmeal, corn gluten meal, wheat gluten and soybean. These are inexpensive fillers used as a meat alternative protein and are difficult to digest and often lead to allergies causing skin and irritations leading up to costly vet visits and medications. Additionally, a new survey reports that 52% of dogs and cats in the U.S. are obese. Overweight dogs and cats suffer osteoarthritis and other orthopedic diseases as well as diabetes, respiratory disorders and hypertension.
Our premium and wholesome foods and treats do not contain any animal by-products, corn, wheat or soy. Ingredients in our foods and treats must supply important nutrients and each protein source must be identified and labeled (such as chicken, beef, or turkey) and must also contain fruits and vegetables in addition to whole grains. We never carry products that have imported ingredients from China because your pets deserve the best.
Premium pet foods deliver essential nutrients for building muscle, nourish coat and skin, and also support energy levels in healthy pets. It is important to have the correct combination of carbohydrates, proteins and fats – just as it is with humans. Many experts agree that dog ancestors consumed meat with small amounts of fruit and grasses. Different dog breeds require the appropriate food combination depending upon the age, ideal weight, health issues, and lifestyle.
We strive to design a personalized diet for each pet taking into consideration pet breeds, life stages, daily activities, amount of time indoors and specific medical and behavioral conditions. With our thorough knowledge of hypoallergenic foods, limited ingredient diets, and novel proteins we will educate you on the differences among allergies, triggers and sensitivities to help your pet get back to feeling happy and healthy.
We invite you to bring your dog and current dog food bag for a whole-body assessment and KCAL requirements. We can provide a thoughtful recommendation for foods and treats along with exercise or activity plan (e.g. walking, running, and pet classes) to help your dog thrive. You are also invited to attend our Pet Nutrition 101 class to hear more about the whole-body assessment and KCAL requirements per day.
Our sourcing policy is to give preference to local and national companies that source their ingredients and make their products in the U.S. We believe in supporting other local independent businesses and purchase items from community vendors when possible. All of our pet foods and treats are USDA inspected.
Chews & Treats
We believe in the ‘3 Treats A Day Pledge’ and know your pets would agree! Patsy always says, “3 Treats a Day Keeps the Boredom Away and Buy a Chew – Save a Shoe!”
At Patsy’s, we have the largest selection and finest quality of chews around! Many of our chews are made right here in Texas and all of our chews are USDA inspected.
Chews are typically long lasting and are crucial to a dog’s oral and mental health. Chews occupy a dog’s mind by keeping them from chewing on inappropriate objects while providing them entertainment for long periods of time. We help you determine your dog’s specific chew level by reviewing their age, breed and size.
We provide the finest quality and safest dog chews that are natural, tasty, healthy, and long lasting. Chews range from dehydrated body parts, animal bones, and variety of pressed chews that are not chemically treated and easily digestible.
Treats come in a wide variety of sizes and can be soft, chewy or crunchy. Treats are available for dental hygiene and some are ‘nutraceutical’ with added supplements for hip and joint, skin conditioners, and even calming aids. Vegetarian treats are also available and offer another way to incorporate fruits and vegetables into a pet’s diet. Additionally, treats can be used for training or to reward good behavior.
Our philosophy and policies for sourcing treats include finding treats that only healthy ingredients. Most commercial pet treats and chews found in ‘big box’ stores contain animal by-products, cornmeal, corn gluten meal, wheat gluten and soybean. These inexpensive fillers used as a meat alternative protein are all difficult to digest and lead to allergies. Our treats and chews do not contain any animal by-products, corn, wheat or soy. With our thorough knowledge of hypoallergenic foods, limited ingredient diets and novel proteins, we enjoy educating you on the differences among allergies, triggers and sensitivities to help your pet get back to feeling happy and healthy.
Patsy’s Pet Market is also happy to offer our private label treats that rate a ‘3-Paws Up’ by our famous mascot Patty Cake! Come on by and treat your pet to some of Patty Cake’s favorite treats and chews. She’ll even help you pick some out!
