About Halle Stene

Halle stene Lonestar Pet Treats on Your Natural Dog PodcastOwner of Lonestar Pet Treats, CPCN (Certified Professional Canine Nutritionist). We specialize in single-ingredient pet treats and natural nutrition for pets. Arizona native. I have two sphynx cats and two mini Australian Shepherds.

I started Lonestar Pet Treats because feeding fresh food to my pets is my passion. I started becoming more interested in pet nutrition when I got my hairless cat Chance (6). I wanted to feed him the highest quality food I could find and after much research, I knew raw feeding would be the most beneficial as cats are obligate carnivores.

After observing all the benefits of raw feeding for my cat Chance, I knew I would be raw feeding all of my future pets. I have a Mini Australian Shepherd name Whiskey (4) and another hairless cat Charlie (2) , and they have also benefited greatly from a raw food diet. My pets are my world and anything that I put into their bodies is super important to me.
