It all started with Karu.

No, that’s not a misspelling – our Golden Retriever spelled his name with a K! We’re Pamela and Adrian Pettyan, proud pet parents and Canadian medical professionals who ran a primary health care center for families in our local community. 

Practically from puppyhood, Karu had constant ear infections. To address this problem, our veterinarian suggested a homemade diet consisting of pure, healthy, nutritious food.

From the day we switched Karu to this new dietary routine, we found that he was more playful and healthy. From our health care background, we couldn’t understand why there weren’t pet food products at our local stores that were as good as what we could make at home. So in close collaboration with an accomplished animal Ph.D. nutritionist, we created a complete line of nourishing meals and treats that look, smell and taste as good as homemade food.

Our beloved pooch Karu sadly passed away in 2018. He will always be missed. But we’re comforted knowing his legacy lives on in the health and happiness of every pet who enjoys our stews and treats.

So why does our name start with a C instead of a K? The answer’s right here.
