This sweet face is why we do what we do here at King Duke’s…  Duke was our first baby and the center of our lives, and naturally, we loved spoiling him.  



At 2 years old Duke was diagnosed with Epilepsy and had to be put on some pretty aggressive medication to control his seizures.  Unfortunately in 2007 there wasn’t much out there for alternative options, so we watched our playful puppy turn into an “old man” in the blink of an eye.  We researched tirelessly to find the very best quality food and human supplements to slow down the deteriorating of his organs because we couldn’t find anything for him in any of the local pet stores. 


In 2015, just shy of his 10th birthday, we received the devastating news that Duke had lymphoma.  Due to his age and the medication he had been on for 8 years, treatment was not recommended for him and we were told he probably had about 4-6 weeks to live.  Wanting to make his final days as comfortable and joyful as possible, we again turned to researching anything we could find that may help him.  Because of the all natural, human-grade approach we took with not only his supplements but his diet as well, we were able to spend another 7 months with our boy.  His doctors were blown away by this and attributed it to the high quality of everything we put in his body.  

Duke's final months were not spent in pain, but were spent swimming in rivers, chasing tennis balls, and doing all of the other things he loved to do.  



Because of this, and because of Duke, we will only carry the best, and will never offer a product that we would not give our own furry kid (Duke’s little sister, Finley).

HAPPY NATIONAL PUPPY DAY!

March 22, 2024 5 min read

As a rule, we are National Day enthusiasts regardless of the occasion. But every once in a while a National Day comes about that fills us with the joy and enthusiasm of 100 puppies which is an apt metaphor since that day is in fact today: National Puppy Day! As you can imagine, the level of excitement at KDHQ is turned up to 11, and accordingly we’ve been gathering not only a selection of puppy merch at 10% off this weekend, March 23rd & 24th, with code PUPPYLOVE24, but also some super fun puppy facts that prove that alongside National Kitten Day (July 10th, mark your calendars!), this is the best day of all the days.
The Enduring Power of Pets!
The Enduring Power of Pets!

There are various means by which eras are defined: the invention of the wheel, the start of the Renaissance, and above all, Taylor Swift albums, tours - so much so the current one is literally named Eras - and romantic partners. Basically, enough things change enough and that means we're in a new phase. Having said that, we have been thinking recently of a contrast: animals and pets are consistently dominant in pop culture - no changes please and thank you - and every single era celebrates and records them. In our current human-centric age, this seems at first, ahem, glance odd, but as we have previously noted, there are 6.5 BILLION cat pictures on the internet which is only slight fewer than the number of selfies on Kylie Jenner's phone (7 billion, allegedly). In our view, this is as it should be, but it set us thinking: why? Why are animals more enduring across cultures, eras, continents, and content than anything else? Step this way...
