“NEARLY END OF SEASON” SALE ON WINTER DOG WEAR!

It might be in the 60s in Virginia, but the Almanac says to watch for late February-early March snow and ice. Come in now for 20% OFF DOG WEAR, including Foggy Mountain, Pendleton, Teckle dog coats or Chilly Dog and Fab Dog woolen sweaters. Be prepared!

“PET FOOLED” MOVIE – Sunday, Feb.26 at 2 pm

HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY, “PET FOOLED?” It’s an in-depth exposé of the inner workings of the commercial pet food industry, the majority of which is owned by only a few multi-conglomerate companies. With the help of veterinarians Dr. Barbara Royal and Dr. Karen Becker, filmmaker Kohl Harrington takes viewers on an entertaining and eye-opening journey exploring all facets of a secretive industry, which has operated largely unchallenged until now.  We’ll be showing this incredible film at our store in February 26 at 2 pm. Light refreshments will be served. This event is free, but please call the store to register so we will have enough seating for all. We can promise it will be well worth your time to attend. Check our Facebook page for updates on this in-store event.

BRUSH UP ON YOUR PET’S DENTAL HEALTH!

February is dental month for pets! And, the best products for better dental health are better foods! Great choices like our raw, dehydrated, or freeze dried foods or higher protein kibbles don’t have the useless carbs and sugars that allow tartar or yeast to develop, which then causes bad breath, gingivitis and tooth decay. Stock up on digestive enzyme products, like Leba III Spray, ProDen Plaque Off, Indigenous Dental Bones or Willard Water. These products are extremely helpful and easy to use. Plus we offer a great selection of toothbrushes and toothpaste and we’ll be happy to show you how to get your pet used to regular brushing. Don’t forget, teeth brushing is included at no charge when we groom your dogs or cats! Here’s to great smiles for all your pets!

Who stopped in.

Riley, office dog at Contour Construction
“My person, Shelia walks me around McIntire to take care of, you know, business… and I just can’t go back to the office without coming in for a Plato Salmon treat. Shelia says they’re good for my skin and coat, but I just love how yummy they are!”

Desiree Sides, McGinnis Meadows Ranch
“Our dogs, Sparky and Gus, had really scratchy, scruffy skin so we called Animal Connection for help. After changing our dog’s food to fresh meat and vegetables, they are sleek and shiny and no more skin issues! And their breath smells better too! What a relief!”

“We love to support local businesses. So when Animal Connection discovered Bowhaus Dog Treats, we knew we had to give them a try. They are a  small batch, soft treat for senior dogs made with organic ingredients. We even tasted them.. they are so good! Our elderly dog loves them and they are gentle on her teeth.”

“I discovered several colonies of feral cats in the city of Charlottesville and thanks to Animal Connection, they can get some healthy meals. They are great about getting donations from some of their suppliers and making it possible for me to feed them on a small budget.”
