Prioritizing the health and well being of our furry and feathered babies is the heart of Bone Appetit in Smiths Falls. Owners, Leigh-Anne and Laura chose Smiths Falls because they saw a lack of specialty, independent pet stores in the area. “The town is rapidly changing in terms of growth and popularity, and we wanted to join in and grow with it.”

Bringing you the best for your pets while “keeping food on our table” is only part of their mission to keep it local. When residents shop local it allows businesses like Bone Appetit to continue to grow and provide additional products and services to their clients. “It also enables us to keep shopping local both personally and as a business.

So, what are your favourite local spots?

“There are so many! I love to eat at: The Pickled Pig, C’est Tout, Harvest Social, & The Vault, I purchase all of my skin care from Blue Door Spa, in Perth I love Flint & Honey and Fox & Fawn”

The ladies at Bone Appetit have some product spotlights for 2022. Be sure to check out the Wiggle Bumz Collars, hand made by a female owned Canadian company. Leigh-Anne’s dog raves about the taste of Bosco & Roxy Gourmet Dog Cookies which are human grade and hand finished in London, Ontario. Finally, Bee Wild Herbs ‘The Juice’ is a nature spray for dogs and humans created in Merrickville. “This spray does an exceptional job of repelling my mortal enemy once it is above 4 degrees in Eastern Ontario – Ticks. This stuff is my jam, I’ve been using it on myself and my dogs for years, I swear by it.”

In 2022, Leigh-Anne and Laura say, “Just ‘Rollover’ with it”. Flexibility is key to the success!
