The Bone Appetite Store Philosophy

At Bone Appetite, we strive to treat each pet as the individual that they are. We know that not every food is right for every pet, and we are committed to finding the diet that best fits your pets needs. Whether your pet suffers from skin allergies, a sensitive stomach or is just plain fussy, we are confident that we can find a food that works for them! We believe that a quality diet is one factor in your pets overall well being and health, and we pride ourselves in carrying foods that fit a particular criteria. We pair this knowledge with an overall love of animals and a desire to get to know each customer as if they are a new friend, and that’s what we feel makes Bone Appetite unique!

In addition to being a great pet store, we have a passion for pet nutrition.

Not sure what to feed your pet? Have a finicky eater or a pet with allergies? Confused by all the options and not sure what is right for your pet that fits in your budget? Murph & Meg can help you select the right diet for you furry family member!

Conveniently located at 1075 Main Street in Watertown, Connecticut, we’re local to Oakville, Woodbury, Bethlehem, Middlebury, Thomaston and the surrounding areas.

Alice and Elliot – Store Security

Alice and Elliot are both rescue kitties that are now customer favorites at Bone Appetite.

 

When she’s not patrolling the store, Alice can usually be found snoozing in her favorite bed. Elliot likes to spend his time running up and down the aisles, playing with one of his toys, or meowing for food.
