Healthy Spot is more than a store. We’re a community of pet lovers who want health and happiness for our companions—and yours. We choose only food and treats that are made with natural ingredients, are easily digestible, and support good health. After all, our pets deserve to eat and live as well as we do!
Healthy Spot is a family-owned business that grew from the heart. After watching her beloved Shih Tzu, Quincy, suffer through a lifetime of health issues, store owner Andrea Lauridsen began researching pet nutrition. She learned that there are much healthier ways to feed our companions than by what is conventionally available, and went on to try an all-natural dietary approach with her next dog, Chico.
Chico enjoyed a lifetime of health and vitality as a result of his superior diet. His coat was shiny, his teeth perfectly white. “People would ask me if he was a puppy when he was eight and nine years old!” Andrea shares. She and her fellow animal-lover husband, John, were so inspired that they decided to open their own store, offering only the highest quality, natural foods for the furry friends in their community.

Community & Charity
Unfortunately, not all pets are in the circumstances they deserve. We aim to play our part by proudly supporting the animal welfare groups in our community—providing sponsorships, donations and fundraising event assistance.
- We have partnered with Vernon volunteers to provide programs like the Pet Soup Kitchen, assisting people and pets in need.
- We support groups like The Road Home Rescue & Safekeeping Society, who provide assistance to pet owners in emergency situations.
- We host Nail Clip Fundraisers four times a year. All proceeds from these events benefit four animal welfare groups in Vernon.
- We offer a Donate A Crate program that directs 100% of sales proceeds to animal welfare groups in Vernon.
- We also donate to many other community groups each and every year.
It is our sincere commitment to contribute to a healthier planet through our business practices:
- Healthy Spot is Bullfrog-powered with 100% BC-based wind power.
- We bag your purchases in recycled, Canadian-made paper bags.
- Many of our products, from foods to pet accessories, are made in Canada—and even right here in the Okanagan Valley!
- We use 100% recycled paper in our office and recycle everything we possibly can. We also use non-toxic, natural cleaners.
