This month’s Who’s Who on Boones Ferry Road features Healthy Pet!
Healthy Pet is a local, independently owned, holistic pet supply store that has been in business – on Boones Ferry Road – since 1986! They specialize in providing premium foods and high quality products that you may not find at the bigger box stores. Women owned and operated, Healthy Pet prides themselves on having passionate, knowledgeable, friendly, and long-standing staff members who are here to help provide solutions and give advice (with a side of therapy!) to customers and their pets.
Kate Bisturis, one of the managers at Healthy Pet, has worked there for 13 years. She grew up in Lake Oswego, attended Lakeridge High, and Healthy Pet was her first full time employer. Kate is proud she has been part of the Healthy Pet family for so long, seeing it grow and develop as an independent, small business in the community of Lake Oswego.
Healthy Pet loves supporting the people and pets of Lake Oswego. They particularly appreciate their incredible customers who are willing to go above and beyond for their personal pets, but also their store pets.
Tofu is their latest store kitty, and she has a special story. She came to Healthy Pet from a shelter in Chehalis, Washington. She was 14 and had hyperthyroidism. Within a month of getting her, their incredible customers came together to raise enough money to have a special radioactive iodine treatment to help her. Thanks to the community, she is now doing fabulously and continues to enjoy ruling over the store and spreading kitty love to all!
So far during construction, Healthy Pet has appreciated having the blue signage to designate where business driveways are to help customers continue to access their store. Having been located right on the corner of Boones Ferry Road and Bryant for more than 30 years, they have seen how congested that intersection can get, and at times, daunting. They are looking forward to having that intersection improved for the safety and access of the traveling public.
