Born into his vocation, Hawaii local Marc Ching is a 4th Generation Japanese Herbalist and Human Holistic Nutritionist – the Curator and mind behind The PetStaurant culture.
As the lead herbalist, Marc makes species appropriate meals for both dogs and cats, understanding the anatomy of animals and how their bodies process and absorb nutrients. His belief and culture, a presence which has become the corner stone of the company – is that our pets are a part of our family.
“Once people begin to look at their animals as family members, the care we provide naturally changes. We want to do the best we can for the ones we love, and things like kibble and processed food – what we would not feed ourselves or our own children – no longer remain good enough”
The PetStaurant is a company that not only makes Organic Pet Food, but a place where Animal Nutrition, Wellness, and Prevention is of primary focus.
“Many people who drive by think we are a pet store. We do sell pet products, but mostly we are an Animal Nutrition Center.” Marc states, “The majority of people whom come here are people looking to find relief for their pets and the issues they seem to be facing. We believe diet and nutrition to be the cornerstone of everything, and work with people in regards to helping their animals live healthy lives.”
Not only does Marc work to help people that have pets find the right foods for specific ailments, but Marc also teaches people how to cook and prepare meals for their pets. In addition to this, Marc provides a free twenty four hour service to hundreds of Los Angeles pet owners, answering questions and making himself available to help owners to the best of his ability..
“I teach people how to take care of not only of their healthy animals, but when animals are sick. Many people do not know what to expect, or how to handle specific incidents when they happen.” The PetStaurant provides a Free Service, and has a 24 hour free hotline where people can ask Marc for help and seek correct answers to situations as they arise. “Over the years I have become the primary care giver to thousands of animals and their families across the country.”
