Rooted In Necessity
It all started with a snot nosed, smooshed faced, wrinkly little pug.
After I moved to Nashville Tennessee, I soon found myself knee deep in the dog rescue world. Together, with a few amazing women, we started helping pugs all over the Nashville area and became Music City Pug Rescue, 501c3.
Being believers in holistic medicine, we decided that MCPR would be guided by all natural dog rearing principals. This made us the first holistic rescue in the state of Tennessee.
While rehabilitating the pugs, we had to help them deal with their symptoms but we didn't want to resort to steroids or antibiotics if we didn't need to. Salvation and Restore salves were born. Restore to heal any punctures, bacterial ear infections, and to stop the biting, scratching and incessant licking. Salvation was used to grow the pug's hair back and deal with crusty noses and yeast.
I met Lynn, my partner in Farm Dog Naturals, while running MCPR. She owned Dizzy's Dog Wash & Corner Store, a holistic dog food store in Nashville. Not only did Lynn agree to sell my MCPR products, she also gave us all of our dog food at cost so we could feed our rescue pugs holistic food rather than commercial crap. Lynn's vast knowledge of canine nutrition was invaluable to the health and well being of MCPR's rescue pugs.
Lynn and I formed an immediate bond that led to establishing Farm Dog Naturals. It was easy being that we both came from backgrounds in animal welfare, environmental stewardship and natural dog care.
Hello It's Us. Farm Dog.
Lynn and I continued to work with one another promoting the power of holistic animal care. In 2007 we made the decision to form Farm Dog Naturals.
