After three decades of supplying and manufacturing high-quality ingredients to the animal industry, we decided to invest our expertise into creating a Joint and Skin Health Supplement specifically designed for dogs. We started off mixing ingredients for friends’ and families' pets and discovered we could deliver everything our dogs needed into a highly palatable pebble, eliminating the need for messy cleanup, stirring into food, and raw, smelly fish oil. It was a barking success!
