At Cowichan Eyecare, we believe that our communities deserve the best vision and eye care available! Eyes are important indicators of overall health, and comprehensive eye care goes beyond a prescription for glasses or contact lenses. It’s important to have regular eye exams whether or not you wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, and even if your vision is sharp. At Cowichan Eyecare, with offices in Chemainus, Lake Cowichan, Duncan and Cobble Hill, we take the time to get to know you, your vision and your lifestyle.

At Buddies Natural Pet Food, we use human grade whole, raw foods to create our Raw Pet Food for Dogs and Cats. Sourcing our foods locally, as much as possible, and seasonally with love in the Cowichan Valley. We believe in a balanced, species-appropriate diet for dogs and cats. A diet that has fresh unadulterated whole foods to fuel their bodies.
We believe that living bodies have everything needed to fight disease and that when given a good nutritional foundation that animals are able to live long and healthy lives, while also being able to combat any diseases that may arise.
We would not presume to be able to survive and thrive off of a diet of kibble and water alone; so why is it that we think our four-legged friends can? Kibble was created in the 1950’s, and since then there has not been enough time for Dogs and Cats to evolve enough to be able to digest the ‘food’ that is conventionally given to them. Having a species appropriate diet takes into account what they would naturally eat in the wild, and then creating the closest thing we can to that.
We at Buddies have always worked diligently at developing a variety of different protein-based raw food blends, that contain the right amount of balanced ingredients for your animals at an affordable price. At Buddies Natural Pet Food, we want to see all our buddies’ live long and comfortable lives.
