Our Story

.

20 years ago, Kat Lacy began trying to understand the hidden, complex world of the pet food industry. She needed real answers to why her pets were consistently suffering from allergies, skin problems, organ damage and obesity. She started telling her friends about the shocking things she learned, and having the best foods she could find delivered to her house outside of Las Cruces. More and more friends wanted the food she recommended, and Better Life was born.

Now Better Life has two stores in Las Cruces. We are dedicated to finding and offering the healthiest food available to the Southwest.

Our Foods

.

We look carefully at the ingredient panels of foods we are considering to offer, where those ingredients come from, the recalls and accountability of the company itself, and testimonials from pet owners who have used the food. Often these testimonials come from the experiences we’ve had with our own animals.

Kat’s Kondos

We have the most spacious, comfortable boarding option for your cats in Las Cruces! We take particular care of your feline friends. We pet them and play with them, give them nice places to hide and tall trees to climb, and serve them healthy food, filtered water, and an extra treat every day.*

Kondos come in three size options: 4x4x8, 3x3x8, and 4x4x4. Each Kondo is handmade, and features a handmade climbing tree, comfortable bedding, and a hidden, fresh-smelling litter box.

If you want to get your kitty groomed during their stay, you get a special 10% discount! You also get 20% off on your cat’s food and/or supplies at the time of pick up!

*How we feed and handle your pets is entirely up to you – if you don’t want us to give them a special treat or play with them, we won’t!

Check out our brochure for more information, or better yet – come by and visit the kitties currently staying with us at 365 Avenida de Mesilla.

.

Prices vary depending upon the size of the Kondo, the number of cats staying, and the amount of special treatment (special food, medication, etc).
Our general rates are:

Single Residence: $12$14 per day

Double Residence: $20 per day

Triple Residence: $25 per day

Medication: $2 per dose

Syringe medication: $5 per dose

Grooming

.

.

We offer full-service grooming from highly experienced, certified groomers, including Kat Lacy, the owner. We specialize in making grooming and nail trimming as pleasant an experience as possible, working with you and your pets to make grooming visits something they enjoy rather than dread.

Not only can we do general and professional, breed-specific cuts — we groom cats too! As with dogs, we make sure cats have as pleasant and calm a grooming experience as possible.

For pets who shed a lot but don’t want to lose their luscious locks, we offer a special Furminator treatment that takes out the shed-causing undercoat for significantly reduced shedding for weeks! Click here for more details.

Appointments fill up fast (especially if you want your kitty groomed), so call today and get your pet’s beauty treatment scheduled!

Check out our brochure for more information, or better yet – call us or come visit to have all your questions answered!

Do-It-Yourself Dog Wash

.

.

20 years ago, washing her dog used to be a serious chore – Kat would either have to flood the yard with the hose, or strain her back bending over in the tub. She needed to find something better – and Las Cruces’s original Do-It-Yourself Dog Wash was born.

It features a raised tub with steps leading up to it for easy access and a happy back, with a handy spray nozzle, a blow dryer, shampoo, towels, and (most important of all) raincoats! We have everything you need – all you have to do is bring your dog!

DIY Dog Wash opens when we do, and closes about 30 minutes before we close. You don’t need an appointment, but if you’re planning to visit, it’s a good idea to call a little before hand to make sure there isn’t a line!

Fishtanks & Ponds

Salt water and fresh water fish, tanks, pond installation, and pond maintenance – we have it all! We will help you learn the do’s and don’t’s of marine, freshwater, and brackish water fish and tank maintenance and help you pick out the fish and fishtanks that are right for you.

If you’ve always dreamed of having a pond but didn’t know where to start – we can help with that too! We offer free consultations, pond installation, monthly to yearly cleaning, and a free follow up after the installation to make sure all your questions are answered – plus we sell all the plants and fish and equipment you need to create a beautiful, professional waterscape!

We approach aquatics the way we approach all our products and services – we offer only the best, and work hard to make sure you are comfortable and educated about what we offer and what’s best for you.
