How it all started...

Offering homemade, healthy, human-grade pup food.

Olive the pittie...the sweetest, friendliest little pup you will ever meet. Also the itchiest little pup you’ll ever meet. Our hearts suffered watching her scratch so much that she would tear her skin off. We knew we needed to change her diet to something she would be able to digest easier that would also provide health benefits other than decreasing the itch.

Within a matter of a week after starting her homemade, healthy, human-grade meals we saw major improvements, from decreased redness and inflammation, decreased stinky ears, and formed stools. A week later, less itching, patches of bald spots were beginning to grow again.

A lot of research went into this journey with finding Olive’s new diet. We struggled with a ton of questions from, “is this a balanced diet?” to “is this the best option we can provide to speed up her healing?” and when shopping for her food we noticed that she was intolerant to at least 3 or more ingredients or supplements added to prepared meal sources.

We realized that we could help many pet parents struggling with the same thing we battled with.

That’s how barks & kisses was born. 💕
