Market in Wheaton Offers Homemade Pet Food Analysis

Natural Pet Market, in Wheaton, is offering analysis of homemade cat and dog food recipes. Owner and President Tracy Werner will review each recipe and determine whether it meets the nutritional requirements of the National Research Council.

Customers can bring in their recipe and Werner, who is also the shelter nutritional advisor for Young at Heart Senior Pet Rescue, will provide a detailed report of the proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals in each recipe and help pet owners determine if there are any deficiencies or excesses in their pets’ diet. Owners can use this information to tweak recipes to make them more nutritionally sound.

Cost: $25. Location: 263 Rice Lake Sq. For more information, call 630-682-4522, email or visit
