When she made a decision to launch Yellow Pet dog Deli, she consulted with a veterinarian nutritionist who aided her build the recipes to be certain that the meals are well balanced and finish. “Our most significant driver was the truth that our dogs’ life are just far too darn shorter,” Robb-McDonald says. “A dog’s lifetime span is about 10 or 12 years dependent on the breed. We just want to be in a position to give them the greatest chance at living a significant-high quality life with us.”
