Our Hot Spot this week is Healthy Spot on Melrose…I’m really happy about its super convenient location to my office on Larchmont so that I can pick up a treat or two for my cat Baba on the way home from work. 🙂
As you may or may not know, I adopted Baba from a NKLA event a few years ago. I specifically wanted an adult cat as the kittens seem to get adopted so quickly, but the adult cats sit on the shelf, or in this guy’s case he was swinging in a kitty hammock when I met him 🙂 I couldn’t believe that no-one wanted him, but they said a few people stopped to pet him and seemed to like him but then they just never came back. Cue my eyes misting up at that point. I picked him up, all 14lbs of him and thought…”this is my cat” The rest, as they say, is history.
But I soon discovered that things had changed since I last owned a pet and there are so many new food options, including organic and raw foods. Sometimes it’s a bit confusing and a bit expensive to say the least. Having a good local pet food store means you can get advice and talk through options with someone who hopefully knows more than you do.
The Hancock Park location has easy parking, offers grooming services and they have a great selection of treats and foods, pet toys and beds, dog collars and harnesses…plus the staff is really friendly and knowledgeable. I do feel that this location is perhaps geared more towards dogs than cats, as the cat food selection isn’t huge, not yet, but I hope they’ll add in more options as time goes by.
Inside the store the layout is open and easy to navigate. According to their website, “At Healthy Spot, we know that your dogs and cats are more than just pets – they’re family. That’s why we are committed to providing pet owners with a full range of wholesome, organic food lines as well as a wide selection of treats, toys and accessories and more. We tirelessly track every pet food recall and choose to carry only the highest quality products. This way, you know if it’s Healthy Spot approved, it’s safe. Plus, our best-in-class grooming services and Small Dog Daycare help keep your dog healthy from the inside out!”
