Green Juju™ was created by Kelley Marian on January 2014 after five years of working directly with hundreds of dogs. An entrepreneur at heart, Kelley previously founded, grew and sold a successful dog walking business in Seattle, WA. When Kelley’s dog Bailey was diagnosed with cancer in October 2013 she initially opted to treat her holistically rather than subject her to amputation. Given the condition Bailey was in at that time – struggling with allergies, weak immune system, difficulty recovering from the biopsy – Kelley couldn’t see putting her through major surgery. After Kelley’s personal strive to improve her own health with juicing and whole foods, she decided to try the same approach to help Bailey. Thanks to all of the diet changes, supplements and of course Green Juju™, Kelley watched Bailey transition to a healthy, happy and stronger dog. Although they had kept cancer from spreading for more than a year, Bailey would still need surgery to be cancer-free. The good news was that she was now strong enough to manage the surgery and her immune system was at a level that would provide a quick and successful recovery. As the story of Bailey and Green Juju spread, Kelley shared her research, information she’d collected, and her specially developed blend. With the impact, she’d seen Green Juju™ have on Bailey she wanted to help other dog owners. Green Juju™ can now be found in retail outlets across the United States, offering a healthy supplement and an easy way to include fresh whole foods to your dog’s diet.
