At Holistic for Pets, we value our 2-legged customers but we especially love meeting their 4-legged companions.

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.

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!

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.

Our Mom has been shopping at Holistic For Pets for a few years now and she says it’s the best! She keeps us healthy by feeding us the wonderful food and supplements that they sell. Because we eat better food we go to the vet less per year which we like because we don’t like to go to the Vet. We hope Holistic for pets is here forever and always so our Mom always has a great place to get our food. The people who work there always help with any of our questions and problems, they have treats too!!!!!! The best part of all is we are allowed to go and shop with her which is way fun! By the way, they have the best toys around!

My favorite product at your store is earth bath Deodorizing Spritz. My favorite scent is "Mango Tango."
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.
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!
Maggie Shaw - Venice, FL
Dear Elizabeth, Thank you for sending my photo. My folks buy all my food at Holistic for Pets. Some is frozen, some canned and some dried. I love it all! I have some problems with my hips so I also get the dried chicken with Glucosamine as a treat - scrumcious!!! I think I feel more like a puppy since coming to your store. I am 6 years old, you know. I hope to see you soon with Aunt Pat and Roxy. Love and woofs,
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!
Talullah Donahue - Bradenton, FL
I LOVE shopping at Holistic for Pets! They have the best toys and delicious snacks. I really like the peanut butter treats. You'll notice that I am quite the fashion bug and chose the perfect pink poodle to match my hair bow. Looks do matter!
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.
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!
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.
Gracie and Buddy Ziobro - Sarasota, FL
We think Holistic for Pets is great. A place that has toys, treats, and food all in one place. What is not to love?
Boomer Montgomery - Sarasota, FL
Hi, my name is Boomer. I love shopping at Holistic for Pets because my mommie will buy me anything I want, because it is all good for me.
Ginger Faries - Sarasota, FL
The picture you see of me is with Mr. Bird. He is one of my favorite toys and my mommy, Kathye, bought him at Holistic for Pets. I have a habit of chewing up my toys but my mommy has been able to find some really good ones at Holistic. I take Mr. Bird everywhere with me -- to bed, playing chase, watching TV and he is really good to play tug with since he has such long legs. When I am choosing a toy out of my toy box. Mr. Bird is usually the first one I select. Hopefully he will last a long time and we will be friends forever.

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.

I love to shop at Holistic for Pets as they have nice people that work there, that really love dogs. I found some dog food there (Innova) that I just love. Besides, when I shop there, I always make some new friends.
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.
Copper McCollough - Sarasota, FL
I like the toys the best. I can even come in and get my own right off the rack. They even have samples for me to try but do not tell anyone, it will be our secret.
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!
Jolie Stewart - Sarasota, FL
I love shopping at Holistic for Pets because they have the best natural treats! My mom fills my stroller with the most delicious things-AND she says they are actually good for me too!
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 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.
Teddy Hesano - Highland Beach, FL
