Wag Tantrum is the result of a desperate search by Founder Barbara Marshall to find a nutritious, tasty food that would keep her precious dog alive beyond a devastating diagnosis at six months.
I originally created Wag Tantrum Organic pet food for my precious Boxer, Lily, when she was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor before she was six months old. In addition, Lily had a very touchy tummy and often refused to eat traditional dog food, knowing she would be miserable afterwards. Everything I read about animal nutrition — and it’s not easy to find reliable information that isn’t sponsored by a huge food conglomerate — indicated that like humans, dogs are what they eat. And I knew the only way to keep Lily around for as many years as possible was to develop a fresh, nutritious food that would feed her heart and soul. Thus Wag Tantrum was born. Lily worked hard as my official taste tester and over the years we partnered to find the perfect recipes for each stage of her life. I finally lost Lily but her legacy lives on in Wag Tantrum!
