Committed to Animal Health and Wellness
Over 15 years ago, Diane Dewberry, founder of The Healthy AnimalTM, wanted more nutritious food options for her pets. Realizing that most of today’s top selling brands weren’t a good choice, she researched smaller companies that manufactured healthy and wholesome food, treats, supplements and remedies. This was the beginning of what became The Healthy AnimalTM . Recently she decided to franchise The Healthy AnimalTM and bring her knowledge to the rest of the world. Diane is our resident pet food expert for dogs and cats and their pet parents, ensuring that our furry friends stay safe and healthy. Because they deserve better!
At The Healthy Animal, we do not consider ourselves to be in the retail business but rather the “pet parenting” business.
We work tirelessly to offer a highly curated and differentiated product assortment supported by world-class team training so we can best serve our guests and their precious pets.
Our leadership team, which has over 100 years of combined, successful retail experience, is committed to the success of our franchisees and the satisfaction of our guests. As an emerging business, The Healthy Animal’s leadership team will provide each and every franchisee an unparalleled level of support and attention. We truly believe that your success is our success!
