NASC-preferred supplier companies must submit to and pass an independent audit and ensure compliance with all regulations. “As the company has grown and added new production capabilities, we have been very conscious of maintaining and improving our quality assurance programs to provide our customers with consistently high-quality products that are safe for pets," said Dr. Anita Sinha, director of quality management at Vets Plus. As the audit process covers every aspect of production, said Sinha, being an NASC preferred supplier “recognizes our meticulous control and attention to quality from formulation to shipping in order to ensure safety and efficacy.”
Vets Plus was also a recipient of the NASC 2013 Visibility Award. The companies chosen have shown dedication to the mission of NASC and to promoting the Quality Seal as a symbol of product safety, according to NASC. The NASC Quality Seal can be found on products in stores nationwide indicating the product and production facilities have met industry standards.
