Wanting to spoil your pet or your friend’s pet with some yummy treats during the holidays is always fun. But animals can develop allergies, which makes finding them snacks and treats that won’t induce a scratching or coughing fit a challenge. Thankfully, there’s Tailwaggers & Tailwashers. Not only does the store carry organic pet food, but it carries holistic pet products and brands that aren’t found in most stores. Their wide range of natural pet products will have your pet looking, smelling and feeling merry throughout the season and beyond.
