New Local Pet Wants Business Opens in the Lowcountry, S.C.

Charleston, South Carolina – Pet Wants’ specially crafted pet food formulas are made in small batches with fresh, natural ingredients enhanced with vitamins and minerals for a complete and balanced diet in every bowl.

When Jeremy and Emily Johnson did the Pet Wants challenge and got a sample of food for their picky eater, a boxer/beagle mix named Clio, they were sure it would be like everything else they tried. But it was worth a shot. They mixed the Pet Wants in with the food she had been eating and then watched as Clio rooted through her dog bowl for the Pet Wants food – leaving the rest behind. That’s when they knew Pet Wants was something special.

Now the Johnsons are pleased to announce they are bringing Pet Wants to the Lowcountry with the launch of their new, mobile business – Pet Wants Lowcountry.

Pet Wants’ specially crafted pet food formulas are made in small batches with fresh, natural ingredients enhanced with vitamins and minerals for a complete and balanced diet in every bowl. Pet Wants Lowcountry offers multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas as well as healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax and more. Pet Wants Lowcountry is a mobile business that serves Charleston’s beach communities, including Mount Pleasant as well as Daniel, James and Johns’ Islands, and the surrounding areas.

“Clio was such a picky eater that we often had to add things like green beans or wet food to her kibble to get her to eat it. When our research led me to Pet Wants, we decided to give it a try. Pet Wants is the only food Clio loves – she drools when we fill the bowl – and our boxer/shepherd, Banzai, loves it too,” Emily said. “So many people consider their pets a part of their family and we’re excited to offer them better food options to help their pets live longer, healthier lives.”

Pet Wants has a 100-percent, money-back guarantee on the freshness and quality of the food and the company only sources the best salmon, chicken, lamb, brown rice and other ingredients available. There’s no sugar added, no fillers and no animal by-products and Pet Wants never uses corn, wheat, soy or dyes, which makes the food great for animals with allergies.

Emily and Jeremy, who have been married for 15 years, moved to Charleston in 2015. Emily, a pediatrician, had decided to leave her practice and Jeremy knew he was burned out on selling wine, so they decided to pack up and move to Charleston – a place they’d visited often and always loved. Now they’re looking forward to becoming a bigger part of the community as small business owners.

“The products themselves are fantastic, but, for us, Pet Wants is really about getting more involved in the community, talking to people about pet food and building relationships with our customers. We want to get to know our customers and their pets so we can make sure we’re recommending the best products for their individual needs,” Jeremy said. “Pet Wants has a personal touch you can’t find anywhere else, especially in the pet food industry.”

About Pet Wants: Pet Wants was started by Michele Hobbs out of love for her pets and frustration. Veterinarians were unable to help relieve her dog’s painful skin allergies. After doing much research, Michele discovered the national dog food brand she trusted was not fresh, not all natural, and lacked sufficient nutrition and – when pet food sits in warehouses and store shelves for months and months – it loses even more nutritional value. She was committed to developing a better solution for all dogs and cats. Their food is exclusively crafted. It’s fresh, healthy and slow-cooked with no sugar added, no fillers and no animal by-products. They source only the best salmon, chicken, lamb, brown rice, and other ingredients. Fresh ingredients make for better food… and better health for pets. And since they never use corn, wheat, soy or dyes, the common pet health problems associated with these ingredients are no longer worries. Their fresh food is conveniently delivered to the customer within weeks of production, not months. Roughly half of Pet Wants products are sold through their store and half through their convenient, home-delivery program. You can learn more at http://www.PetWants.com.
