Science has our back
We're not just a pet food company. Our nutrition-first approach to wellness makes us a pet health company.
“Nutrition is the best medicine.”
Go with the gut
Your pet’s microbiome, or gut, is a unique, evolving and complex internal environment made up of trillions of microbes. The microbiome is the home of good digestion, and it can have a profound impact on your pet’s overall health and immune system. That’s why we’ve made this a target area of study — and we’re the leaders of the pack.
We have the largest pet microbiome database in the world, and it’s growing all the time. This data helps us (and you) learn more about microbiome differences and similarities across breeds, sizes, and geographic areas.Learn more about our Microbiome Testing Kit
Full system support
Nose-to-tail pet health is more than what they eat — it's how their bodies process the nutrients from their diet. It’s about maximizing the benefits in order to address issues concerning the digestive system or for preventative measures to support a longer, more comfortable life. We get it. That’s why our science team developed (and are working on more) beyond the bowl products that help support the unique needs of dogs and cats. Because a healthy pet is a happy, fewer-visits-to-the-vet pet.Learn more about our supplements
