Nutrition plays such an important role in the health of our pets. What we feed our pets (and how much) can have a large impact on their quality of life.
The choice of food at the store can be overwhelming, and choosing the right one for your pet’s age, size, and unique needs can be daunting! There are so many brands, ingredients, and flavors to pick from before you start deciphering the health claims.
Our Pet Boutique at 718 N Main St in Springboro is here to cut through the confusion. In addition to therapeutic diets typically carried by veterinarians, we have carefully selected over-the-counter food and treats that provide economical solutions for allergies and various medical conditions.

Customized feeding plans take the guesswork out of meal time
If your pet needs to slim down a bit, is an overweight-prone breed, or you are just confused by your pet food labels, you will love our customized Feeding Plans.
This is a guide made just for you and your pet – his weight, his goals, and the food and treats he likes. You will know how much to feed and how much to treat, without scrutinizing food labels.
Post it on the fridge and everyone in the house will know exactly what to do to keep your pet on track!
Our food recommendations are simple, clear, and informative
Not sure what you should be feeding? The hundreds of choices at the pet store certainly don’t make it easy, but we have you covered. Based on your pet’s needs and your preferences, we can provide you with a list of recommended foods. We tell you:
- Where to find them
- How much you’ll pay
- What the packages look like
- Why they’re good choices for your pet
Don’t go into the maze of food aisles at the pet store without a map!
