Aloha, E Komo Mai
Lava Paws developed as a pet treat and pet product company after many years working, living, fostering, and loving pets.
I went from a well-respected pet sitter and dog enthusiast to a pet health advocate. Over the years, I watched my dogs go from perfectly healthy to a rapid decline in health and in some cases developing rare diseases. I questioned things like diet, shampoo's with chemicals, household cleaning supplies, lawn care, and more.
At this point in time, I really started to focus on diets; healing and nourishing our dog instead of treating ailments with medicine.
This year, I even stepped out of my comfort zone and enrolled in school for Canine Nutrition. Furthermore, we even launched our Raw Dog Food (Big Island Only) and started specialized meal plans (world-wide).
And even more great news, in Spring 2020, I'll be getting certified in Feline Nutrition.
I'm happy to report that all of our pets are now happy and healthy. Currently, the Lava Paws Ohana includes four dogs (3, 4, 5 and 15 yrs old), one very chatty kitty, and 4 lovely chickens. All eating species appropriate foods. All nourished and thriving.
Right now we are a one woman show in Volcano, Hawaii. With that said, we are looking to expand and to reach even more pet parents.
Lava Paws treats are typically made from locally sourced Hawaii Island meats and are made with minimal ingredients that we all can understand.
Our pet care products such as Beastly Balm, Shampoo Bars, and Turmeric Tails are made with many local and organic ingredients.
I hope you see from our treats, products, website, and social media how much I love and care for animals.
