Pet owners will be able to find even more variety and services for their beloved animals with the recent move of Pet Naturals to Hillary Square.
The store has been in Ōrewa, on Hibiscus Coast Highway, for more than a decade and owner Cindy Ren says they are excited about relocating into the heart of the town centre.
Pet Naturals has a long-established reputation for stocking pet food, especially raw food, and accessories for cats and dogs (as well as rabbits and fish), attracting customers from all over the Coast and wider Rodney.
The company moved to the new premises, which are three times larger, last week. All that additional floor space, and a backyard, has enabled Pet Naturals to stock a much bigger range and bring in large accessories such as pet beds and crates.
“We can now truly be a one-stop shop!” Cindy says.
She also hopes to introduce a self-service dog wash in the backyard and is currently on the lookout for a dog groomer who could base a grooming service there.
Pet Naturals manager, vet nurse Therese van den Bos, will continue to offer help and advice on aspects of pet health, including diet. This is a big drawcard for customers and Therese also does microchipping and nail trimming.
Cindy says the store’s focus on high quality, locally made and environmentally responsible food and accessories not only remains but will be enhanced by the move.
“That ‘natural’ aspect of what we do is important,” she says. “For example, we sell home compostable dog poop bags, shampoos that are free of palm oil and the raw food includes feral species such as possum and deer that destroy native plants.”
