Finding the right pet products to help your animals live long, healthy lives shouldn’t be challenging. But in the world of pet food and treats – where it’s often more about marketing than ingredients – making those decisions can be especially difficult. I’m Chris Rome, the owner and operator of Pet Wants Denver. While Pet Wants Denver opened in 2016, I joined the pack as the new owner in 2020.

I understand the importance of pet health and the role nutrition plays in their everyday lives and longevity. When my favorite dog passed away, I couldn’t help but think about things I might have been able to do differently. Pet Wants gives me an opportunity to take what I’ve learned, combine it with our Pet Wants products and help other parents enjoy long, healthy years with their beloved animals.

When I switched my cat and dog to Pet Wants, we saw an almost immediate difference in their health, coats, energy levels, and more. My dog, who was always a slow eater and a slow walker, now devours her food and is leading the way on our walks. She’s happy and energetic – and I’m falling in love with her all over again. That’s what I want for all pets and pet families.

Pet Wants Denver is a mobile business and we offer free, personal delivery through greater Metro Denver and the surrounding area. I’m excited to meet you soon!

How Pet Wants Got Started

As pet parents know, a pet’s diet is very important. Pet Wants was created in 2010 after the Founder noticed some serious health issues with her beloved pets. Problems began to appear and quickly worsened. Many unsuccessful trips to the veterinarian’s office and several thousands of dollars later, she decided to take matters into her own hands. She discovered the problem was the low nutritional value of the food she was feeding her pets. In simple terms, the pets weren’t getting enough of the right nutrients necessary for a healthy life. As a pet parents who cared deeply about her pet’s welfare, she felt terrible — like she had let down a family member. She was shocked to learn that the nationally recognized premium brand food she trusted for her pets lost most of its nutritional value from sitting too long in warehouses, and on store shelves. She decided there had to be a better way.

What's Wrong with Name Brand Foods?

Most commercial pet food is manufactured in large quantities and sent through a series of distribution warehouses before finally making it onto the shelf at your local store, where it can sit possibly for up to 6-8 months before it’s purchased for consumption. Because pet food loses its nutritional value over time, pets which can end up eating a diet that’s low in nutrition which can lead to unnecessary sickness, disease, and even a shortened life.
