Here at Life of Riley, we really do understand how important it is to know what is in the food you give your pets.
Riley (aka Riley Roo), our beloved dog, was recently rushed to the vets after he suddenly started behaving strangely.
Following many examinations and tests, our vet diagnosed Riley with several, quite severe food intolerances. (Pork, beef, rabbit and eggs – to name just a few!) We were relieved but genuinely shocked, Riley was over 6 years' old, we'd had him since he was a pup, and we hadn't known.
Our vet stressed that if these allergies were ignored, Riley could become seriously ill. He told us that Riley's organs would deteriorate slowly and his immune system would weaken - we would lose our Riley Roo.
After rigorous research, we realised that many of the treats we were feeding Riley contained unhealthy and nasty ingredients, most of which, we hadn’t even heard of!
The ‘treats’ were making him sick! We had to do something about this, we couldn’t starve Riley of treats but we couldn’t keep feeding him the ones available. We realised that to keep Riley safe, we had to make our own treats. And so, Life of Riley – Pet Bakery & Boutique was born!
Because we want the best for Riley, we only use the best. To keep our treats healthy and our Riley Roo safe, we said woof-bye to all nasty preservatives and artificial colours and keep our amount of ingredients to a minimum.
As a result, we have a wide range of healthy and gluten-free treats available for you to buy without any worries of upset tummies.
