As most of our customers know if they shop for their pet’s food at Beastie Boutique, we are advocates for a fresher food diet for your pet as we believe this is the best way to receive optimal nutrition. When I say fresher food, that doesn’t mean your pet can only get that from a balanced raw-meat diet, but also a lightly cooked balanced diet or a canned food diet. Of course, if you only have one pet and that one pet is 10 to 15 pounds, it’s easy to choose a......
Recently Evangers Dog Food Company had a voluntary recall on one of their products: Hunk of Beef. Somehow the food was contaminated. See info below. I was advised today of another recall of a line we do not carry. Due to this recent recall, we are pulling all Evangers products from our shelves even though there was no recall on those products. We may bring them back once all this is sorted out and they can determine how their products were getting contaminated. If you still choose to purchase Evangers please let......
Recently, we noticed Beau was having back pain so I took him to the vet and we discussed his options.

I agreed to start him on Tramadol and Rimadyl just to relive his pain while we explored other options. We did start acupuncture. After several treatments, Beau started anticipating the pain and the Dr. and I discussed if acupuncture was best for him and maybe......
After going to a distributor trade show, I was happy to find a new product called ActivPhy. Even though we currently carry a few products for hip and joint there were a few things about this product that I like. I have been using it for Beau as it was recommended by our vet at East Padden Animal Hospital that he be on a supplement for his back issues. I also give it to Baxter as he, being a dachshund has a per-disposition to back problems and has exhibit some issues in......
Bone broth is essentially the nutrient-dense stock liquid made from simmering raw or cooked bones at low heat over long periods of time. This oily broth is packed full of amino acids, vitamins and minerals and is considered a nutrition powerhouse for dogs! Bone broth is especially ideal for sick dogs and senior dogs, as it is extremely easy to digest and is soothing for the gut. Although this healthy broth can be given to help dogs heal and stay strong, it also works as an excellent raw multivitamin supplement for any......

A lot of times when we get a dog or cat, we don’t think about their teeth until it’s too late.

Look at them regularly to avoid dental disease. To check your pet’s teeth, lift the lips all around the mouth, look at the front and back teeth as closely as possible. Be careful…as your pet may want to nip at you.......
