Native Pet, a pet food and nutrition company that makes organic, highly effective and limited ingredient pet supplements for dogs, announces the closing of $6 million in Series A funding led by CAVU Venture Partners. Launched in 2017, the brand has already met major growth milestones and intends to use this round of capital to continue that strategic growth online and at retail locations, while expanding its innovative portfolio of whole-food pet supplements.
With its disruptive approach to supplement formulation, Native Pet is making it more seamless than ever to keep your pets happy and healthy. All nine products in the Native Pet portfolio are function-driven to provide dogs with unique benefits based on need. Minimally processed and made with whole-food ingredients, they are efficacious, nutrient-rich and delicious. Continuing their innovative approach to pet supplementation, the newest product line available on the market is Native Pet’s collection of air-dried chews which are offered in four categories: Calm, Relief, Allergy, and Bladder.
These highly effective supplements are created alongside certified veterinary nutritionists and are made with up-to-five clean, whole-food ingredients. The supplements are chicken-based and are free of flour, oil and artificial flavoring. Historically, the supplement category has been dominated by the soft chew format. The soft chew needs 10+ inactive ingredients to hold together and is mostly filled with starches and oils treated under high pressure.
