Meet The Owner
I’m Marco Di Pasquale, the local owner and operator of Pet Wants KzooWest. When I was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2007, I learned so much about the importance of nutrition and the difference a good diet can have on our bodies. Changing foods also helped my dogs – my own health-challenged French Bulldog, Mio, and my older foster dog, Missy.
When we got Mio at 16 weeks, he had giardia and was allergic to everything. After spending thousands on allergy testing, various antibiotics, steroids, Apoquel, and constant changing of foods, we were able to get him healthy. When Missy joined our family, she had parasites, eye issues, ear infections, incontinence and heartworm. After getting her medications sorted out and switching her to Pet Wants, she was able to recover her dignity – she was full of smiles and a wagging tail. That’s what I want for all pets and I’m proud to represent Pet Wants in this community.
I was raised on the east coast and earned my information systems management degree from St. Joseph’s University. After the eye-opening bout with cancer, corporate jobs were no longer fulfilling – I wanted to do something that had meaning. Pet Wants KzooWest is a mobile business and we offer free, personal delivery to Southwest Michigan, including Kalamazoo, Portage, Schoolcraft, Mattawan, Paw Paw, Plainwell, and the surrounding areas. Please call me for a complimentary pet nutrition consultation — I’m looking forward to meeting your furry companions and helping you find Pet Wants products to fit your family’s needs.
