How we got started...
A few years ago, my husband and I opened a small animal sanctuary in our home where we care for hospice and special needs dogs. In 2018, we adopted a small elderly chihuahua, that we named Tico. Tico was having a multitude of health problems that included arthritis and kidney disease. We were instructed by a veterinarian to put Tico on a prescription diet. I purchased a case of the prescription food, but after I looked at the ingredients I absolutely could not feed him that food, so I began to do some research. That research lead to the development of our own home cooked recipe. Within six months Tico's kidneys were functioning normally and his arthritis pain disappeared. Three years later, Tico, who is now 15 years old, is still healthy and living his best life. We stopped buying traditional dog foods and treats for the rest of our sanctuary dogs, and the results have been absolutely amazing.
Pepper's Place Kitchen includes all of the same treats and foods that we feed the dogs in our sanctuary. My recipes are based on the eating habits of wild wolves, the ancestral relatives to domestic dogs. They are single protein foods with wild caught Smelt added for Omega 3s and a blend of fibrous carbohydrates including squash, broccoli, carrots, green beans, and strawberries. Our dehydrated jerky treats are made from a blend of single protein organs that provide your dog with vital vitamins and minerals. Our gummy treats are a simple recipe of homemade bone broth and collagen that provide natural glucosamine and chondroitin for joint and skin health.
We have had great success with these feeding habits. I hope that your dogs will benefit from these eating habits as well, and I know they will enjoy the food and treats as much as our dogs do.
