Emergency Stop for Pet Food in Victoria, BC

We were travelling on the Star Princess from Alaska on our way back to San Francisco.  After 9 days I was running out of my dog's special food (Stella & Chewy's) - bad planning on my part!

Emergency stop at a lovely pet store:  Paws on Cook, Victoria, BC
I knew we'd be in Victoria and emailed a couple of pet food stores that looked as though they carried high quality food.  Jodi at Paws on Cook emailed me back almost immediately. They didn't have that brand in stock, but gave me information on a couple of high quality brands that had similar ingredients.  Wow.  Ok, Sunday afternoon, we set off for Paws on Cook.

I met the proprietress, Jodi, who was personable, knowledgeable and gave me her honest assessment and experience with several foods.  The store also had a great selection of dog squeaky toys, leashes and carriers.

In sum, Paws on Cook is a very pleasant store with a great selection of high quality dog (and cat) items, and owned by a very knowledgeable and helpful proprietress!

Lesson learned - bring extra dog food, and a little research on the internet can save the day!
