New Product – Bahia Blue

We’re pleased to announce the latest product to grace the shelves at Hairy & Merry.  We now carry the 100% human-grade Fish Sticks and Fish Flakes from local vendor, Bahia Blue.

Mike and Suzi Mayer from Cardiff by the Sea are serious about healthy dog foods, vitamins, and supplements.  When their dog, Blue, was diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy (similar to MS in humans), in May 2004 they switched her to a healthy diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.  Blue was at risk of not being able to walk within 6 months and Mike and Suzi started preparing foods recommended by the University of Florida’s study on the disease.  They figured that if such a diet could slow the progression of the disease in humans, why not try it on dogs?

Well, it worked and Blue continued her walks on the beach with Mike for the next four years and lived to the ripe ‘ole age of 14!

Because of their experience, Mike and Suzi have since created Bahia Blue Fish Sticks and Flakes.  Both are made from 100% human-grade ingredients with nothing added and nothing removed.  They take Canadian Rainbow Smelts and dehydrate them to preserve the nutrients and increase the shelf-life.  Smelt have over 800 mg of omega-3 fatty acids per ounce, and are high in protein, vitamin B12, phosphorus, manganese, selenium, calcium, and zinc.  These treats are great for dogs, and cats too!

Fish Flakes are a powered form of the Smelt that are perfect to sprinkle over food, or mix with peanut butter or a Hairy & Merry Dog Beer for a nice treat.

If your dog or cat is on a limited ingredient diet, is at risk of any autoimmune diseases, or just wants a healthy and shiny coat, please stop in and dry one of these products from Bahia Blue.
