    Lix is a newer company to the pet health space that we got to meet for the first time at SuperZoo in Las Vegas on our first day. In the new product showcase, they introduced their broad spectrum CBD elixirs and CBD chews. Something that is unique about the CBD elixirs is that they are flavorless as the basic flavor of CBD is often a turn off for dogs.

    Hayley McIntosh / 519-760-3465 / Hayley@earthmd.ca

    Earth MD was founded on a desire to provide pet owners with safe and effective alternative remedies with no harmful side effects. We believe in an all-natural approach that is dependable and 100% reliable. 

    FORT ERIE, ONTARIO, CANADA

    Owners, Bobby and Julia have been immersed in the pet industry from a young age. Bobby has worked in both the retail and manufacturing sides of the industry and has more knowledge about pet products then most people have access to. Bobbly grew up breeding and boarding dogs at “Second Home Pet Boarding” and has extended expertise when it comes to breeds, health and general care. Bobby also managed production for True Raw Choice learning much about how products are made, inside information about brands and met various representatives of companies. Julia has a degree in Biology from Guelph University which she originally planned on using to become a veterinarian. Those plans changed however upon learning that she would have to compromise her morals to do so. She decided to look for alternative ways to help animals and landed on nutrition and natural medicines. Julia is currently taking online courses to become a certified Clinical Pet Nutritionist in order to better help her customers. She has also been published in the Fort Erie Observer and Pet Connection Magazine.

    Bobby and Julia have been the owners/operators of their pet store “Thors’s Healthy Pet foods” since 2015, Earth MD since 2017 and Second Home Pet Boarding since 2019. Having been in the industry for over 25 years and often being asked questions A-Z about pet care, medications and more, Bobby and Julia decided to take matters into their own hands. Earth MD was founded in 2017 with the intention to not only educate but to show the functional and powerful aspects of all natural/ holistic products. The Earth MD line of supplements are impactful and most importantly safe. With their products in over 800 stores across Canada in a just a couple of years it’s clear that their customers love and believe in their products as much as they do.

    Mystery pet loving celebrity at Healers Petcare booth to Launch two new products at Super Zoo. A Combo Kit for Total Holistic Pet Health and New Urban Walker Boot- Booth #4168

    Vancouver, WA — Healers PetCare is excited to announce 2 new products at Superzoo this August. Our mystery celebrity guest will be in the booth for this new launch.  A new combination kit offerings for pet health, providing a variety of wellness items in easy-to-purchase packages. The kits include various products, like the company’s Skin and Coat Health Chews, Hot Spot Relief cream, and Conditioning Tea Tree Oil Shampoo for total-body approaches to optimal health and wellness.

    “At Healers, we are constantly looking for long-term solutions to pet health,” said Terri Entler, founder of Healers PetCare. “Our new systemic solution kits are design to assist in treating as well as preventing health issues in pets. With our new Urban Walkers’, a dog has a natural feel when walking and is great in all terrains. With current heat waves boots are becoming more and more necessary.”

    Entler founded the company in 2009 to provide top-quality pet health and safety products. Healers began with a line of medical booties to protect injured paws during healing, and has since grown to encompass everything from light-up visibility jackets and first aid products to preventative supplements and natural wellness aids.

    The company has now turned its focus toward holistic wellness through all-natural products created with partners that truly care about helping pet owners keep their four-legged family members healthy. These products will help address many common preventative and treatment needs, Entler said.

    “Pet allergies, skin issues, and open wounds are all major problems pet parents face,” she explained. “Our complete solutions work together systemically to not only aid the healing process, but also add preventative and long-term solutions to those problems. It made sense to package them as combos that provide total solutions and save our customers money “

    Healers will offer three kits as well as the New Urban Walkers, Kits include:

    • Skin and Coat Solution Kit: includes Skin and Coat chews, Hot Spot Relief, and Conditioning Shampoo to provide a multi-pronged approach to skin and coat health and to treat skin-related issues
    • Wound Care and Hot Spot Relief Kit: includes wound care spray and our Hot spot relief with Hydrocortisone to clean open wounds, stop bacteria growth, promote healing, offer relief, and rejuvenate the skin
    • Turmeric Golden Paste and CBD Oil Kit: includes Turmeric Powder and CBD Oil 250mg 1 oz bottle to boost both ingredients’ healing properties, reducing inflammation, providing antioxidants, and more

    “Our clients save money on solutions that truly help their pets maintain optimal health when they buy our products as packages instead of individually,” Entler explained. “We want them to have access to solutions that will help treat their pets’ entire conditions, not just one element. We also want them to be able to prevent common injuries whenever possible.”

    Healers PetCare announced partnerships with two woman-owned companies — Costa Rica-based natural farm Biolley Farms as well as veterinary-focused Healing Tree Naturals — last year to create its lines of preventative and holistic wellness products. The company will continue to develop health solutions that treat pets systemically and heal root causes, rather than solo products to address single health aspects.

    Healers Pet Care is proud to be TR{1}BE Certified and doing our part to help protect the rainforest and reduce our carbon footprint.
