Testimonials
At Holistic for Pets, we value our 2-legged customers but we especially love meeting their 4-legged companions. The photos and testimonials you will see are from real "customers" who enjoy shopping here for a variety of reasons, like receiving lots of attention from our staff and tasting lots of yummy treats and samples that we offer throughout the store.

We encourage you to email to us a high-resolution, digital photo of your pet playing or posing with items from our store. And, if you will send a brief description about their favorite product(s), we will include your pet's photo and testimonial on our website.

Reuben Kaplan - Chicago, IL
Hello Elizabeth, thank you so much for taking my picture at Holistic for Pets. I was so happy that day as you can see from my ear to ear smile. Both my mom and I love shopping there because I love all the treats and toys and mom loves that everything is natural and good for me. She also loves the very helpful and friendly staff that answer all of her questions and concerns about me. I have to admit, I do get a lot of petting and attention there. I like to smell the treats and chewy toys, and if I find one I especially like, I wag my tail a lot and mom knows that is my special treat for our shopping spree. Because I am a picky eater and need high reward treats, Mom knows she can find the best tasting goodies for me at Holistic for Pets. We will miss you when we go back to Chicago!
Dakotah Gonyer - Sarasota, FL
My mother and father and I visit the Holistic for Pets store and buy my favorite foods and treats. I love to go there with them and smell all the goodies and they always give me a treat when we are there. The food is outstanding in taste and quality and that is why everyone thinks I am so beautiful! My coat is shiny and my tummy says "Thank you" Holistic for Pets for your great tasting dog food.
Dexter Sampey - Sarasota, FL
I am a pound puppy from Sarasota County Animal Services. I love to chew. My dad found some tough toys at Holistic for Pets that I (almost) cannot destroy. He brings me to the store to shop and I love it. We call it a "field trip". All the girls there love me and shower me with attention. Speaking of shower, we get our doggy shampoo at Holistic for Pets too.
Mikey Tromley - Sarasota, FL
I love going to the doggy store for my treats. I see so many nice people and cousins of mine.
Luca Horton - Sarasota, FL
Hello, my name is Luca, I am Bichon Frise and I am 11 weeks old. This is my third week with my human family. The first thing we did is go to "Holistic for Pets" to choose the best food for me. I started with Orijin and am doing fine. I love the shop, they are all very friendly and helpful and have delicious "treats"! My special thanks to Val for her advice and recommendations.
Bandit Cowley - Siesta Key, FL
I have been welcomed into my new home by my 12 year old brother, Elmo. He has been coming to Holistic for Pets and eating right for about two weeks. His fur is softer and he doesn't itch anymore. I am also eating right. Then I can grow up to be a big dog like him.
Hope Alland - Sarasota, FL
My name is Hope, I am a mini Aussie Shepherd. My mom discovered the Canine Camper at the Holistic for Pets store. Originally, she bought the large size one for the house. My mom and I loved the fact it was easily to set up and just as easy to fold for traveling. The quality of this crate is excellent and I just love the airy feeling it has. Plus, since my mom and my boy are always traveling (either surfing or Polo matches) my crate can easily fold up and fit in the car - so where ever I go - my personal condo comes too! My mom fell so in love with this product and the quality that she bought a second one - a bit smaller, so that when she is at the barn and off riding horses, she can easily crate me and not worry about me getting into mischief till she returns. I want to thank you all at Holistic for Pets not only for your products, but for carrying healthy food, treats, shampoos, herbs - all things natural - so that I can be a healthy, happy well-nourished dog.
Sharko Cacic - Sarasota, FL
Gruff!!! In my language, hi. I am Sharko and wanted all my canine friends to know what its like to sniff around Holistic for Pets. They have many good things here from food to lots of toys. I am a frisky, friendly guy, so the Cowboy Cookout food, flled with beef, potatoes, vegetables and fruit is good for me. Then for treats, I have cow ears, chicken and lamb jerky. The folks here are very nice and give me treats when I come in for chow. If you are not the cowboy type or your diet is special, they have many options for you to choose from. So, come on down or send them an e-amil and they will be happy to take care of you. Woof! Woof! Good Eating to you.
Molly Mae Hees - Sarasota, FL
My name is Molly Mae and I have been a customer at Holistic for Pets since I was about 8 months old. I love the variety of treats and foods that they offer. I like to stop by the store on a Saturday morning to browse and visit our friends who work there. The staff is so knowledgeable! Oh, I also love the cow ears that they sell there.
Tootsie Boatwright - Sarasota, FL
First of all, Tootsie is a shopper. We like fancy places like Saks, Dillards, and Total Tennis. She knows where she is going when I drive to her favorite place - Holistic for Pets. When we shop at Holistic for Pets, Tootsie will do anything for Happy Hips-Chicken Breast treats. Without a Chicken treat, no trick! Her long black hair is so glamorous and shinny because of Natural Balance. Tootsie loves to sniff the colorful toys and take one home. We both enjoy the attention of canine friends, their owners, and the friendly ladies that cater to us behind the counter. They are always pleasant and it is fun to chit chat. When you say, Holistic for Pets, Tootsie demands she wants to go!
Cassie Banstetter - Sarasota, FL
I just loved my visit to Holistic for Pets. Everyone was so friendly and really knew their stuff. I also got lots of yummy food and treats. I can not wait till my Mommy takes me there again.
Skioshi Solana - Myakka City, FL
I love shopping at Holistic for Pets . . . just as my family has for generations. Holistic always has something I like, and I never have to worry about red dye (do not want to have tear staining). My favorite item to shop for, which I can never have enough are the antlers, they are perfect for a teething guy like me, hard on the outside, and tender on the inside. It is worth the ride!
Teddy Harmatz - Sarasota, FL
I love to go shopping at Holistic for Pets. They greet me by name and give me treats. I eat Innova canned food and kibble for Seniors, with a little Sojo Europa veggie mix added. I love my food and I have lost some weight since we switched to Innova. I shed less and my coat is thicker and softer. Everyone says I am beautiful!
Gizmo McCollough - Sarasota, FL
I am so cute --- would you please buy me a new toy? Or how about a bag of treats from my very favoritist store, Holistic for Pets?
Lexi Grant - Bradenton, FL
Hi my name is Lexi and I just love to go shopping at the Holistic for Pets store. It is hard to catch a ride there but when my two favorite twins Hannah and Nicole bug my human mom to go we have a blast. I really want the bed you see me in but no luck yet I just get to go and visit it. I love to walk up and down all the aisles and check out all the cool treats and toys they have for sale. When I pick one that I like then my two favorite twins beg and beg my human mom to buy one and yes I always succeed. After all... I do have a cute little face. Well I hope you have as much fun there as I do when you go to visit the store. Remember the green bed you see in the back of the store is mine. Bark, Bark, Bark Lexi the cute papillon.
Nova Stalnaker - Sarasota, FL
Dear Ms Chandler, I thought I would drop you a note to say how much I appreciated your attention to the little details for my new training collar. Mom says I pay much better attention with the gentle leader. I do so like to match my collars with my leashes. Fashion is so important for us Florida Brown Dogs! Your sample treats were quite tasty. I am so glad mom picked up new cookies; the everyday ones get rather boring with all the training I am running mom through these days. Mom and I think shopping is such fun at your store, and we always feel welcome. I am sure we will be back. Thank you very much for your warm hospitality,
Bandit and Missy Rezendes - Nantucket, MA
Holistic Pet Store has the best food that we have ever tasted! three paws up
Jake Lewis - Sarasota, FL
RRRUUUFFF … My life ruff, no way … especially since me and my Mom shop at Holistic for Pets. I love that place. Everything smells so good there, and I always get to pick out my own toy to drag up to the counter. You see, I’m a puppy, just starting out in life, and Holistic for Pets has everything I need to be happy and healthy. And, everyone is so nice there. They are always SO excited to see me. They know EVERYTHING about good nutrition. My Mom had lots of questions and they were very helpful. Even when I don’t get to go ... bummer … I get so excited when Mom arrives home with my stuff. She even got my favorite bed there, and all my favorite things to chew on, which my Mom says I’m doing way too much of …whatever that means! So, check it out, you’ll love it!!! Hope to see you there ... I love making new friends and chewing on them.
Kamari Potter - Sarasota, FL
Hollistic for Pets literally saved my life. Right after I turned a year old, I became very sick. I could not keep food down, my weight was dropping, and my fur was falling out. My veterinarian diagnosed me with Inflammatory Bowel Disease and told my Mommy that I had food allergies. We tried every veterinary diet on the market and each one made me sicker. It seemed like I was allergic to everything. When my Mommy and I moved to Florida, she was on the verge of having to make a tough decision about my life. I was emaciated, and suffering immensely. Thank goodness she found Hollistic for Pets. The passionate staff was extremely familiar with dogs in general, even rare breeds like me, and our dietary needs. They were able to suggest a new diet for me that was not available in my home state of Indiana. Immediately I began to feel better. I gained weight, and my hair grew back in, and suddenly, I had energy again! I had forgotten what it was like to smile and play. Because of Hollistic for Pets, I have a chance to a loyal, happy family pet for many years to come. I highly recommend visiting the store for the everyday needs of your dogs, and coming to talk to the staff about specialized requirements for your unique situations. I am convinced that no one knows better than Hollistic for Pets.
Princess Perry - Sarasota, FL
See me with my mom! I am the little Shih Tzu Princess. Mom took me to Holistic for Pets in November to get food and Elizabeth helped us get this great photo taken. (Elizabeth talked mom into it and I am so glad). I love posing and love the photos they took of me. There are more poses too. The food mom buys there is the best and the treats ....oh so good! Now mom wants to take the rest of the pack to get their photos too. I do not know if I want her to do that, I like being so special. Mom cannot take all 6 of us to the store, so I get to go because I am so good.
Misty West - Sarasota, FL
Arf Arf ~ I sure had a great time during my visit with you and thanks for all the great treats; they were yummy! When I came into Holistic For Pets I was "scratching", dragging my tummy on the floor and chewing my paws. My Vet has been treating my "allergies" with icky shots for 2 years; about 6 months ago I was sent to dietary boot camp with nothing to eat except potatoes, fish & fish oil ~ my mini treats were a teenie greenie & a tiny bit of Pupperoni. The only thing the "new" diet did was cause me to gain weight. I've been just too miserable for words. I think the 2nd luckiest day in my entire 4 years was the day I met you. (My luckiest day was when I came home at age 12 weeks). You knew exactly what my problem was and showed my parents the products that would make me feel better. Just 24 hours after we started using all of the things you suggested I stopped scratching, dragging my tummy on the floor and chewing my paws. My meal times are happy times and I love the Grizzley Salmon oil in my food. The treats are great ~ I have so many to choose from and that's a treat all by itself. Thank you for helping my parents find all the new food for me. I love Holistic For Pets and can't wait to come see you again ~ you guys are the best!
Tank McCollough - Sarasota, FL
Hi I am Tank! I am 19 pounds of kitty. I am large and in charge and demand the best of everything. That is why my Mommy shops for me at Holistic for Pets, the store for discerning kitties.
Canaima Potter - Sarasota, FL
My favorite place in the whole wide world is Hollistic for Pets. That is where my Mommy gets my all-natural food. The staff always knows how to keep me healthy. But the best part of my trip is always a visit to the toy section. Hollistic for Pets always carries safe, super-fun toys to help keep me physically and mentally active. The staff never minds if I need to try things out, just to make sure I chose the perfect toy for me. They even offer suggestions! If you stop in, be sure to try a chewing treat. Parents really get angry when you use their shoes and furniture to exercise your jaws. I prefer the braided pizzle sticks to a chair leg any day. I hope to see you at Hollistic for Pets!
Daisy Daniel - Sarasota, FL
Mom and I have been coming to Holistic for Pets off and on since last August when I chose to follow Mom home from the Sarasota Humane Society. A few days after arriving home, I started itching all over. One of our trainers suggested we consult with the staff at Holistic for Pets. I was impressed by their patient, helpful attitude as well as the extensive knowledge-base of the staff. We love to go there for yummy treats and useful accessories – like these great dog goggles! I’m a big fan of the wide variety of healthy treats and fun toys they have at Holistic for Pets. We appreciate the seatbelts, leads, and of course, the doggles, that help keep both Mom and me safe.
Pongo Butler - Sarasota, FL
We (that is, our Mom) found Holistic for Pets in 2004 when we (she) were looking for healthier, more nutritious food. Since then, Mom says the change in our overall health and well-being has been dramatic (in a good way). Many stores now offer healthier pet products, but very few have the nutritional knowledge and the holistic mind-set that the Holistic for Pets team does – Mom says “They are the best!" and Mom is always right!
