Meet the Owners

Fresh, high-quality pet food means healthier, happier pets. But sometimes decoding what’s in the pet food at the store is complicated and, even if you can figure out the ingredients list, you have no idea how long that food has been sitting on the shelf. I’m Sid Gonzales and I opened Pet Wants BIG D with my wife Tracey because we saw Pet Wants as a great opportunity to offer pet families a better option.

Pet Wants’ carefully developed proprietary pet food is slow-cooked in small batches with fresh, all-natural ingredients once per month, so every kibble is guaranteed to be fresh and packed with nutrition. We only source the best salmon, chicken, lamb, brown rice, and other ingredients available and there’s no sugar added, no fillers, and no animal by-products. Plus, since Pet Wants never uses corn, wheat, soy or dyes, the food is great for animals with allergies. Pet Wants BIG D also sells homemade pet treats and jerky, skin spray, pest repellent, healing salves, paw wax, and more.

Best yet, getting Pet Wants doesn’t mean an extra trip to a special pet store! We happily offer free Pet Wants delivery to pet parents in Dallas inside the LBJ loop including Preston Hollow, Lakewood, Lake Highlands, East Dallas, Oak Lawn, Turtle Creek, Uptown, Downtown, Highland Park, and University Park.

Tracey and I have lived in East Texas for more than 30 years and are raising our daughter Izzy here. Prior to opening Pet Wants BIG D, I built my career in corporate IT. Tracey, who will be helping with the business part time, works in education at St. John’s Episcopal School. We are members of St. John’s Episcopal Church and actively involved at Episcopal School of Dallas.

At Pet Wants BIG D, we are dedicated to educating people about animal nutrition and getting to know the pets we’re feeding. We want to help pet parents understand what’s in Pet Wants’ food versus what they’ll find in other commercial pet food products. Our dog Paisley loves Pet Wants and it’s really boosted her energy and improved her coat. We’re looking forward to seeing the positive impact Pet Wants makes on your animals.

How Pet Wants Got Started

As pet parents know, a pet’s diet is very important. Pet Wants was created in 2010 after the owner of Pet Wants noticed some serious health issues with her beloved pets. Problems began to appear and quickly worsened. Many unsuccessful trips to the veterinarian’s office and several thousands of dollars later, the owner decided to take matters into her own hands. She discovered the problem was the low nutritional value of the food she was feeding her pets. In simple terms, the pets weren’t getting enough of the right nutrients necessary for a healthy life. As a pet parent who cared deeply about her pet’s welfare, she felt terrible — like she had let down a family member. She was shocked to learn that the nationally recognized premium brand food she trusted for her pets lost most of its nutritional value from sitting too long in warehouses, and on store shelves….she decided there had to be a better way.

What's Wrong with Name Brand Foods?

Most commercial pet food is manufactured in mass quantities and sent to a series of distribution warehouses before finally making it onto the shelf at your local store. There it sits…possibly for up to 6-8 months before it’s purchased for consumption. Because pet food loses its nutritional value over time, pets can ultimately end up eating a diet that’s low in nutrition and can ultimately lead to unnecessary sickness, disease and even a shortened life.

How Are Pet Wants Products Different?

It’s simple. Freshness is the key to good nutrition. We provide our proprietary pet food formula that has been carefully developed over the years and deliver to your home to ensure freshness. Your pets will appreciate a healthy, complete and balanced pet food made from fresh, all-natural ingredients. Since our food is slow-cooked to lock in nutrients and is made in frequent, small batches, we deliver the fresh and highly nutritional food to our customers within weeks, not months, of being made. Our customers appreciate the convenience of our auto-delivery system that they can modify prior to each delivery. This ensures that the best possible food is delivered when they need and only how much they need – delivered right to their door – for the same price as most premium commercial pet foods.
