Healthy Pets
Old Mother Hubbard is to pets what Betty Crocker is to humans. In 1990, the company began working with a team of animal nutrition experts, veterinarians and scientists to develop a food that would revolutionize the pet food industry. The result was Wellness, a uniquely formulated holistic pet food made primarily with human-grade ingredients. Wellness dog foods were introduced in 1997 and cat foods were added to the line in 2000. The Wellness formula instantly made headlines by taking a holistic approach that incorporates human-grade de-boned chicken and fish, hormone-free lamb, healthy grains, and fresh fruits and vegetables into your pet’s diet. Today, they offer dry and canned formulas, treats and grain-free, protein-focused options. What’s best is that they have launched the WellPet Club, to benefit organizations that dedicate time, money and resources to pet wellness programs and initiatives.
