Scraps 4 Pets opened its doors in 2008 to help the pet parents of Las Vegas help their pets live a longer and happier life!
Catherine Dalinis, owner of Scraps 4 Pets was inspired by a positive experience she had when she was recommended a holistic diet for her then sick cat Jonah. The diet change from his prescribed veterinary diet to this new holistic diet not only made him better, but he was now thriving. With this experience, she left graphic design to enter the pet nutrition and supply business!
She brought in Leith, mother to fur kids Kona and Hana, as Scraps 4 Pets Nutrition Guru. Leith’s background included extensive studies in food therapy throughout the years and experience working with Dr. Beebe at the Integrative Veterinary Center in Sacramento, CA. Leith has always been focused on being able to understand much more about quality nutrition especially as it relates to the care of our pets.
Leith and Scraps 4 Pets have been integral in reaching out to traditional vets in the Las Vegas area, and introducing them to holistically inclined nutrition. In the Summer of 2009, Leith put together a panel where traditional veterinarians and vet techs from one of Las Vegas area’s biggest animal hospitals were given the opportunity to be educated on raw diets. The Honest Kitchen presented our company and products to this audience of members of the veterinary field who were not familiar with feeding outside of the traditional kibble diets. The event was a great success!
Leith says their greatest tool for introducing The Honest Kitchen to new customers is education, and education!
