Our Story & Our Mission: Probiotics For Dogs & Cats
Fidobiotics bounded into existence in 2013 with a goal of providing the same level of quality for canine probiotics as is available for humans. Just as we understand the importance of treating our bodies kindly with healthy, natural supplements, so we understand how our furry family members can benefit, too.
It was one very special dog that spurred our family, the Wheelwrights, to pursue a business specializing in probiotics for dogs. When the Wheelwright’s youngest daughter left for college, we thought a canine companion might infuse some joy into our family’s transition time. We found a floppy-eared Golden Retriever on September 12, 2001, and named him Pledge, in honor of our nation’s coming together after the terrorist attacks. Like many pets, Pledge quickly ingrained himself as an irreplaceable family member with very human-like characteristics, so much so that he earned the nickname of the Prince of Bel Air.
Just as we understand the importance of treating our bodies kindly with healthy and natural supplements, so we understand how our furry family members can benefit, too.
Because most of the humans in our family had knee problems, it didn’t really come as a surprise when Pledge developed knee problems, too. After a round of antibiotics following knee surgery left Pledge with tummy troubles, we gave him probiotics to help his belly heal. After all, we believe in probiotics for preventative care and gastrointestinal issues – why wouldn’t we treat our furry family member the same? Pledge was soon back to his princely ways, and the idea for a company specializing in probiotics for dogs was hatched.
Many Companies Offer Probiotic Products. What Makes Fidobiotics Different?
Other companies may offer a probiotic option as part of a longer list of supplements, but only Fidobiotics employs the high quality manufacturing processes that enable our supplements to deliver those beneficial live microorganisms all the way into your dog's gut. We are experts in probiotic manufacturing, and our specially engineered products are guaranteed to deliver the full dosage all the way to your pup’s belly. When we talk product efficacy, we’re not just talking about the potency at time of manufacturing – we guarantee it has that efficacy at the time your dog consumes the product.
The reason we focus on dogs is simple – they’re our family. We firmly believe that preventative health practices can lead to a higher quality of life, and who doesn’t love to see that Fido grin.
