October is National Pet Wellness Month and we want to celebrate by highlighting five pet brands who are defining the pet health and wellness industry. As a dog care company that goes beyond being just a dog daycare, Dogdrop is committed to a holistic approach that addresses the most important aspects of dog wellness. That’s why we partnered with five pet wellness brands to bring pet parents some of the best options for dog nutrition, dog health, CBD for pets, dog grooming, and dog training to care for our pets inside and out. 

Native Pet

Native Pet is a small startup of passionate pet owners based in St. Louis who wants to give our furry companions access to high-quality food. They are new leaders in the functional food movement. Food nerds who have studied what’s available for pets and aim to be better. They are now the first to create whole food, limited ingredient formulas that dogs love.

Native Pet believes that food is medicine, which is why they have created simple (9 ingredients or less), targeted, functional formulas that work to support total pet health. They believe in the pursuit of better products because, let’s be real, we treat our pets like our kids. Dogs deserve access to simple, data-driven, whole food nutrition at every stage of their lives. All-natural supplements can provide the added nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants that will help keep pets thriving.

Formulated by a leading vet nutritionist, Native Pet chews feature clean ingredients in the exact doses your dog needs. Through a game-changing method of air-drying these ingredients, they found a way to deliver real food nutrients without sacrificing any of their naturally occurring benefits.

Soft chews tend to lean on fillers, flavorings and hard-to-pronounce ingredients that, although tasty, can be counterproductive. With their Allergy Immunity Chews and Bladder Chews, you get the cleanest, most effective chew available. These are perfect for strengthening your dog’s immune system during pet wellness month and year round.

From seed to sale, from plant to pet, Pet Releaf oversees the entire manufacturing process to provide pets with the highest quality CBD pet products.

The hemp is sourced from US-based farms using sustainable and regenerative practices, and grown with no herbicides or pesticides. It also extracts from the entire hemp plant to retrieve all of the beneficial cannabinoids from the hemp plant including CBD to benefit your pet’s overall wellness as well as target specific areas in their body. 

From there, all the Pet Releaf chews are made using whole food, human-grade ingredients that contain no fillers, corn, wheat, soy, dairy, or chemical preservatives. After production, Pet Releaf products go through third-party laboratory testing monthly to ensure product quality and potency.
