The Inspiration

 McKayla's inspiration came from her rescued Staffordshire, Chevy. Adopted when he was just 6 month old, Chevy came with her everywhere. He developed food allergies when he was just 2 and McKayla sought help from Mud Bay and began her pet nutrition journey from there. Chevy passed in 2017 after being diagnosed with liver cancer that was beyond treatment. He lives on in the hearts of all he met.
