Natural, Organic and Holistic Pet Supplies
When our new pet supplies business was established in 2006, we decided immediately to champion real food for pets from the word go. We have built our business, although only a small local shop, into one that is known in the area for expert nutritional advice and natural, wholesome foods for pets. We have many customers who will now visit us first before the vet, to see if a change in diet or a natural supplement or remedy will help resolve the condition (we do, however, insist that owners visit the vet if we feel it is necessary).
All foods that we sell are only ‘taste tested, not lab tested’ and I have introduced many of our small suppliers to Peta, who are now on their list of accredited food manufacturers. I still get a buzz when a customer, whose dog has a skin, digestive or other condition, comes back and thanks me for helping their pet lead a better life. We constantly offer education on pet food ingredients, and most customers will now admit that their pets eat better than they do.

Pet shop and nutrition centre
We run a nutrition centre and pet shop called Top'N' Tails in Braunton, North Devon. (we don't stock Bakers and have not for a long time). We have 10 rescue dogs of our own. Our main interest has become nutrition due to the state of some of the dogs that come in with terrible skin problems, rotten teeth, blocked anal glands, etc., what was sad was that these people were caring, loving owners in the main who wanted the best for their pets and most of the problems were caused by ignorance to what they were feeding and chemicals. Also the nightmarish behaviour of some of their dogs - you can guess the rest of what I could say!!

"I believe that if we choose to bring a pet into our home, then they deserve the right to be rewarded with "Real Food" not something made via a test tube & ingredients not deemed suitable for anything else. I wouldn't eat something like that, so why should it be fit for the dog!
This is why I only sell natural foods and treats. After all "A healthy pet is a happy pet."

Monty's Munchies was set up in September 2010 by me Jesse Lucas, 13. I set it up in order to fulfill a need and that need is to bring healthier, non-derivative treats at cheap prices. My inspiration is from my own dog Monty who is a black Labrador. One day my father was listening to LBC in the car and heard you from the Campaign for Real Pet Food. It disgusted my dad when he heard what is actually in nearly every pet food and treats. Then when he told me about it we changed Monty's diet . We changed him to healthy kibble and healthy treats. However these treats are hard to find in local pet shops as they are usually very expensive. That is when I created Monty's Munchies, since we launched in September we have became a small well respected treat brand with many people buying our products. will be online in the next couple of days. For our Chicken and honey treats(our top seller) we use:
-Organic Wholemeal flour
-Organic & Free Range Chicken Stock cube
-cracked wheat (bulgar wheat)
All our treats are fully labeled with the ingredients and no terms are used. It is important to us that the customer knows exactly what they are buying.
"I have believed and felt very passionately for many years that the first hurdle is the lack of understanding and not lack of caring, which is why I insist that at The Greenhouse and Top Pet Shop we only stock very natural products and give the best advise and guidance we can."

At Natural Pet Choice our belief is ‘our pets are what we feed them.’ We have control over what we eat but our pets don’t, so it’s up to us to feed them the best foods available. With that in mind we only stock pet foods which list ingredients in plain English and our customers notice a big improvement in their pets’ allergies, weight, alertness and energy levels, when they switch to foods that are made from proper, whole, ingredients.
Our pets deserve to live healthy, happy lives free from diseases previously only seen in humans, much of which can be attributed to a poor diet.

Scampers is recognised by the pet care industry as the benchmark in quality animal care retailing.
Scampers’ philosophy is to help make all our customers pets healthy, happy and living longer more fulfilled lives. We do this by training our team on all aspects of pet care for dogs, cats and small animals, who in turn pass on this knowledge to our customers.
Advisors receive extensive training on all the pet foods we sell, for instance; how to read a pet food label and the difference between different types of oils and fats, meat derivatives and real meat protein sources. Why some foods can enhance behavioural problems and also helping to dispel myths about pet food like high protein (when viewed on its own) causing hyperactivity.
We carry the finest range of top quality foods in the whole country and are one of the largest independent retailers of super premium and natural dog and cat foods. Scampers are an ethical retailer and therefore we do not for instance sell animals, choke chains and other outdated training equipment, birdcages or reptile products (as we are worried about the growth of this market) and our policy in all instances is to put the welfare of the animal before profit.
Dogs are welcome in the store where we are always happy to give advice on overall condition, grooming and dietary tips. We can also help out with any simple behavioural issues like puppy training, pulling on the lead and general good manners.

The All Natural Pet Food Company is a unique company on the Wirral providing only 100% natural, British food and products, and nutritional advice.
The company was cofounded by Jayne, a qualified Veterinary nurse who spent 14 years in small animal practice. She developed an interest in diet and nutrition after increasing amounts of pets were being seen at the surgery with allergies and conditions caused largely by diet.
We feel it is very important that people are provided with ingredient information therefore raising people’s awareness of products that contain poor quality ingredients that are unnecessary and definitely not beneficial to the well being of pets.
We provide a whole range of natural British pet foods, treats, supplements and products, as our aim is to offer a natural alternative for the customer, whatever it may be that they require.
We found that even the customers feeding on a good quality food were still treating with poor quality, so undoing the good that they were doing without even realising.
Our customers have been so impressed. The testimonials speak for themselves.
Our message is simple “Natural is best”
We support the Campaign whole heartedly, as there is nothing better to us than seeing happy healthy pets.

We run a grooming salon in Weston-super-mare and over the years have become concerned at the condition of a lot of the dogs which came in- skin allergies,scurf,ear infections,dental problems and obesity and discovered a lot of these problems were down to poor feeding.
We only sell brands which we would feed our own dogs and give advice to customers,many of whom are unaware of the poor quality ingredients and additives found in some brands.We also only sell food which isn't tested on animals.
We are passionate about dogs and their welfare and believe that only the best will do-for this reason we fully support the Real Pet Food Campaign.

Webbs Natural Pet Care was established in 2007 to supply customers with good quality, natural pet food and accessories. We offer a home delivery service in our local area and also offer some items for mail order via our website.
We cater for dogs, cats and all small animals and all of our products including food, treats and bedding are as natural as possible. We also sell a large range of products to help our native wildlife, from hedgehog houses to ladybird lodges and we attend local shows and events where we sell home-made treats and pet toys made from recycled and sustainable materials.
As more and more of the larger manufacturers introduce products falsely branded as "natural" we feel it is increasingly important to provide pet owners with the clear information they need to choose top quality food for their pets. This is why we whole-heartedly support this campaign.
