As Yvette Waller was thinking about opening her own business, she realized her favorite passions fit into two categories – nutrition and pets. Now she’s looking forward to combining those passions with her new small business, Pet Wants Western Slope.
“I’m excited to be able to empower pet owners to take control of their own pet’s nutrition. Pet Wants products are fresh, high-quality and nutritionally-balanced, but we’re about more than what’s in our products. We’re also about education. We want to make sure people understand what’s in commercial pet food and what makes Pet Wants different so they can decide what’s right for their own pets,” Waller said.
Waller has a background in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry and has been involved with health and natural healing for the last 16 years. When Waller and her husband, Steve, moved to the Western Slope a few years ago, Steve found work locally, but Waller was spending her weeks at a job four hours away.
“Working that far away was taking its toll and, as I was thinking about my next steps, I realized I wanted to make sure I was doing something that would make me happy. When I found Pet Wants, I realized it was a great combination of my own interests in healthy eating and natural healing as well as my love for animals,” Waller said. “I’ve had more than two dozen pets throughout my lifetime and I love animals of all species and sizes. I have a heartfelt desire to protect and care for all animals and I think food and natural remedies can make a big difference in their quality of life. I’m looking forward to bringing Pet Wants to this community.”
Pet Wants has even made a difference with her own two dogs – Brutus, a.k.a. “Bubba Love” and Bruce, a.k.a. “Sweet Potato.” Waller switched them to Pet Wants food back in the spring when she was considering opening Pet Wants Western Slope.
“Over the years, as I was able to afford better nutrition for my pets, I realized the importance of a healthy diet and the impact food can make on our pets. After switching them to Pet Wants, my one dog’s digestive issues have cleared up and both of my dogs’ coats and energy levels have improved. I’m excited to talk to people about Pet Wants and about helping animals in this community live healthier lives,” Waller said.
