How to Have a Happy Pet

The world of pet products has come a long way. What used to be an industry focused on kibble and rope toys has expanded exponentially into territory that has, well, become pretty familiar with us humans as well. We now have more options than the processed, canned foods we find on supermarket shelves; organic and natural foods have taken precedence in the movement for healthier lifestyles. State Line Pet Supply is giving our pets the same option.

Owner Dana Post sums up the now endless array of pet product choices perfectly.

“I guess the best way to describe it is to say that pet foods have become more humanized.”

And why shouldn’t they be? Pets are members of the family, and while their health needs differ from our own, they need nutrients, proteins, and vitamins just like we do. Not all dogs have the same diets, just as not all humans have the same diet. The research has been done and the result yields better food options:

“Now healthy foods can be consumed that are more compatible, specifically based on your pet’s needs,” Post explains. “As an added bonus, foods addressing skin concerns, coat problems, arthritic joints, and even sensitive stomach issues can be purchased with the necessary aid supplements added.”

State Line carries thousands of food selections, and the helpful and knowledgeable staff is there to answer your questions and concerns about what products may be best for your pet. You won’t be alone if you bring your furry friend with you either - many patrons of State Line are accompanied by a four-legged friend or two. Post is no exception; his 13-year-old Rottweiler Tiki can be found in his office. Tiki runs on a diet supplied by State Line, and his energetic, spry demeanor speaks well of it.
