Petco is more than just the place that pets go. It is also a place where we can find everything we need to keep our furry (and not so furry) friends happy and healthy. And with that in mind, it makes sense that they would announce a brand new initiative surrounding health and wellness for our pups.

In a press release from Petco on March 29, they announced their plans to make sure that we are all following a “whole health philosophy” when it comes to being pet parents. Not only did they make it clear that Rawhide products will no longer be on store shelves, which is something that started on March 23, but they are also using April as a challenge month to support and reward healthy living.

And yes, there is an amazing prize associated with the challenge. It seems that Petco will give three lucky pet parents the ultimate membership. According to the release we received, “In April, challenge participants will be entered for a chance to win one of three free year-long of Petco Vital Care memberships.”

So what exactly is this Whole Health initiative? Basically it is a way to engage in every aspect of your pet’s well-being. We are talking Physical Health, Mental Health, Home Health, Accessible Health, and Social Health. Everything our animals need to be happy, healthy, and well-rounded, that’s what Petco wants to help us focus on.

Petco unveils their Whole Health Philosophy with a challenge

It’s time to go beyond the basics when it comes to caring for our pets. After everything our pets do for us, it makes sense that we should do the same for them. And since they can’t do it on their own, it is up to us to make sure they have what they need.

When it comes to taking care of our pets, we want the very best for them. From picking the right food to finding the perfect bed and toys, we are always on the hunt for what will not only keep our pups happy, but also healthy. And knowing that Petco is not only supporting this, but taking things to the next level to make that happen is really important. It means that we know where to go when we have questions or need help.

Petco is taking the next step when it comes to pet care. And whether that means removing Rawhide products, which have been controversial for some time now, or just expanding the level of care that we can offer to our pets, they know what we need to make our animals live more enriched lives.
