Want to treat your canine or feline friend, but you’ve heard about all the junk they put into pet chow? Well rest assured – in the same tradition as My Organic Market – Mighty Healthy Pet has tasty and natural food to keep your animal friends healthy and happy.

One trend in the growing market of natural and holistic pet products that Mighty Health Pet embraces is raw frozen foods. An increasing amount of customers want to feed their dogs uncooked meat foods rather than the mashed grain diets that dogs have had to become accustomed to.

Mighty Healthy Pet has a huge selection of food toys, and accessories for cats, dogs, birds, and small animals such as rabbits. Alternatives to all the staples that you’d expect to find in any big box pet store abound, accept here, they’re really made with our animal companions and environment in mind. There’s even a wellness section with supplements and natural grooming aides -- from shampoos to non-synthetic/chemical-based flea detergents.

Opened by My Organic Market in 2008 due to customer demand, the unique Mighty Healthy Pet store has quickly become a hot destination in the Hollywood neighborhood  for local animal lovers.

Lisa DeLima, VP of Grocery & Marketing for My Organic Market says that in the same vein as MOM, Mighty Healthy Pet emphasizes “top ingredients and top quality.” She explains, “We make sure the foods at Mighty Healthy Pet are preservative-free, and that those foods with meats are prepared using antibiotic free beef, turkey, and lamb – as opposed to the unregulated meats found in mainstream pet foods. On the other side of the spectrum, from their raw frozen meats, Mighty Healthy Pet also has a few vegetarian dog food options.

Mighty Healthy Pet and MOM understand that the environment isn’t just something people care about when they sit down to eat. In fact, “everything in the store has a sustainability aspect” according to DeLima. Not only do they sell natural pet foods, but all leashes are made with hemp or organic cotton, and dog and cat -beds are made from sustainable plant products or recycled materials -- like stuffing made from the softened plastic of soda pop bottles.

Since it’s in the Hollywood Shopping Center, Mighty Healthy Pet makes for a great day trip when combined with some shopping at MOM or REI. Anyone concerned with creating a happier and healthier life for themselves and the animals that bring them joy should consider looking into the natural products available here today.
