He is dedicated to the local community and to providing outstanding service and quality products for customers and their four-legged friends. He is excited to become a local resource for everything pet-related, including proper nutrition, healthy lifestyle and community involvement. Being surrounded by a variety of animals most of his life, and the proud parent of Rigby, a Jack Russell Terrier, and two rescued cats, he has become attuned to the unique nutritional needs of pets. “With the increasing focus on pets as family members, individuals are paying more and more attention to their pet’s health and well-being,” said Erskine. “I intend to offer a remarkably high level of customer service in a friendly, welcoming location for both pets and their owners.”
