LAKE ORION, MI, (PRWEB) Jul. 28, 2010 - - Michigan has been one of the hardest hit states following the economic crisis. But Orion Healthy Pet, a family-owned and operated pet supply store located in Lake Orion, just expanded its company in order to progress its mission of manufacturing and distributing Michigan-made, natural and holistic supplements, pet food and products to dogs and cats with specific attention to dogs diagnosed with cancer.
Orion Healthy Pet epitomizes the state’s need for locally-owned and successful businesses that offer Michigan products and services that promote the state’s recovery while also jumpstarting its economy. The expansion of this bricks and mortar business into a larger storefront property in Lake Orion will boost the local economy and create new jobs.
Orion Healthy Pet started in 2005 when company owners, Tom and Mary Beth Peters’ dog died of cancer. This experience became the impetus for their company as they strive to improve the health of all pets through natural means and educate pet owners on the importance of proper pet nutrition and lifestyle behaviors.
In 2007, the couple, both born and raised in Michigan, created their own line of grain-free and plant-based pet food out of a large stainless steel pot from their kitchen. Today, their product, PetMix, which is the only all-natural dog food made in Michigan, is sold nationwide and is their bestselling product. The Peters’ continue to hand-make PetMix in their newly expanded store.
Orion Healthy Pet is also one of two companies in the world licensed to sell products that contain Natural Eggshell Membrane ™ (NEM), a specialized formula clinically shown to aid in joint health and improve the symptoms associated with canine arthritis.
Orion Healthy Pet and its online store, K9CriticalCare.com specializes in natural supplements for pets afflicted with chronic conditions like arthritis, diabetes, joint disorders, thyroid imbalances, and allergies.
