It all began when we created Smooshie Faces Pet Services in 2014, pet sitting and dog walking service’s in Cairns FNQ, which became very successful very quickly. Anyone who was familiar with Smooshie Faces Pet Services would realise we created our own logo, website and Facebook page. We decided to get even more serious about our love for pets, with a new name and professional look and the decision to expand into natural dog and cat food, sell natural pet treats and accessories Drool Pet Co. was born. The reason we decided to commercially produce raw pet food start as a result of Roxy’s (our own dog) poor health and this is her story. READ MORE
We found Roxy at the local Cairns animal shelter, the moment we saw those beautiful brown playful eyes we were in love. An 8-month-old American Staffy was ours and we were over the moon!
As soon as we got her home we realised she was covered in hives, she had swollen infected ears which felt like sandpaper, red itchy eyes, dry skin, patchy hair, underweight, very gassy and clearly looked uncomfortable. For a couple of years we were at the vet’s every few months using the traditional approaches to her conditions, but this fix was only temporary. In desperation for an answer we researched her conditions and slowly started to realise it was mainly food allergies.
Being disappointed with the quality of store bought dog food, we slowly eased her off dog biscuits and focused on introducing a raw natural dog food diet.
Slowly all her ailments cleared up, her coat is shiny and Roxy couldn’t be healthier! Its amazing what a natural dog food diet from mother nature has done for her body. Raw Dog Food isn’t an allergy cure, but it does help build up the immune system which helps fight the allergens. So this led us to produce quality raw dog food at Drool Pet Co., after years of making this quality product for our dog, we realised we could help other dogs and their owners with our natural dog food.
