Is your cat a picky eater? Is your elderly dog having trouble with his joints? Maybe you just like to spoil your parrot.

Is your cat a picky eater? Is your elderly dog having trouble with his joints? Maybe you just like to spoil your parrot.

Whatever your special pet-nutrition needs, The Dining Dog Healthy Pet Market aims to have the answer.

Owned by Althea Seeds and Risa Krohn, The Dining Dog in Allentown is a different shop for pet lovers and their pets.

The shop defies an easy explanation. It has dry and canned pet foods and treats that many pet stores carry. It specializes in natural and organic options.

But there also is a bakery and kitchen where pet owners can buy freshly made homemade dog treats, parrot loaf for birds or chicken cacciatore for cats.

“We can make just about anything,” Seeds said.

For pets with kidney problems, allergies or sore joints, there also are herbal and vitamin remedies that can bolster the treatment a pet may be receiving from a veterinarian.

“I heal animals through nature,” Seeds said. “I’ve learned how to take real food, grow it in the garden, cook it up and bring the pet back into balance.”

Seeds said she is an animal lover and has long worked with rescue animals, when she learned many of the natural and holistic therapies that can be used to improve the lives of animals.

She hopes the store in the Dorneyville Shopping Center at 3245 Hamilton Blvd. in Allentown will be a place where people can find healthy alternatives for their pets.
