Tail Blazers calls itself a "Health food store for pets," and the variety of quality wellness products at Tail Blazers definitely backs up that claim. The business was first started in 2000 by two individuals who actually have a background in the health food and supplement industry for humans, which naturally transitioned into the creation of these health products for pets. They also carry a number of Canadian and eco-friendly products, making sure their products are better for the environment, not just better for your pet. You can find Tail Blazers in Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario, including this location on Gateway.
