A local business since 1950, Jefferson Feed's 24,000-square-foot store teems with premium pet, lawn, and garden supplies. Rolls of verdant sod and select Woerner turf options wait to be cut and delivered to customers' lawns by a convoy of delivery trucks, and fountains, statues, and planters stand ready to garnish gardens. Hefty bags encase pet food from more than 20 premium brands such as California Natural, EVO, and Purina, and a slew of 60 different types of aquariums can house fish and reptiles or imprison misbehaved pet rocks. The store also partners with local animal shelters and rescue groups to offer dog and cat adoptions, and its onsite team of groomers gussies up four-legged friends with premium Capstar products.
The stock and services at McFaith Feed & Pet Supplies represent the experience the owners gained from consulting with fellow pet people at dog shows and competitions. Seven lines of natural and holistic foods allow pet owners to make informed decisions about their pets’ nutrition, and a full pharmacy protects pets from rabies and infections. Clean cats and dogs emerging from the spa can be treated to stylish new leashes, fun toys, and audiobooks by top terrier authors.
The pet-loving technicians at Invisible Fence of New Orleans specialize in keeping man's best and furriest friends corralled, and happily so. Whether surrounding homes with a subterraneous containment system or setting up an indoor PetFree area, the techs design pet zones that match each owner's interests, then conduct training sessions to help dogs, cats, and dogs disguised as cats overcome their wanderlust. Invisible Fence's territory encroaches on the domains of bark control and behavioral training as well, and its efforts to improve the lifestyle of animals leads it straight into the world of pet doors, toys, heated wellness beds, and self-cleaning litter boxes.
It's a common misconception that pet waste is healthy for your lawn. In reality, the high-protein content of a typical dog's diet can be quite a hazard—not just to the lawn, but to your family. That's why the insured technicians at No Doody tackle the dirty work for you, carting away unwanted waste during one-time or routine lawn cleanings. Clients may also request a special yard deodorizer treatment to improve your lawn gnome's chance of getting a date.
