What is Native Pet?

We’re pet people by nature, and everything we make was created with their specific needs in mind. We see lots of supplements that make big claims but don’t deliver results. So we make products that really do what we say they will, targeting specific problem areas with results you’ll see and your pet can feel. In creating the most effective pet supplements around, we refuse to compromise on what goes inside. We only use responsibly sourced clean label ingredients, chosen for their power to help your pet feel best. Building on our own passion, we work with veterinarians and nutritionists who understand how a good diet promotes a lifetime of wellness.
