Pet Expertise is committed to lowering our impact on the environment. We do
this in many ways, by evaluating how we power our office, how we get to work,
the products we choose and the way we ship them. We choose products that are
durable and high quality and we are especially interested in products made in the USA,
recyclable, recycled, biodegradable and naturally produced. For example, we only
offer dog food and dog treats that are from free-ranging meat sources and
contain no chemicals.
