Best Breed Celebrates 20 Years!

This year we are excited to celebrate our 20th anniversary!  In 1994, Dr. Gary Cotton, DVM (Dr. Gary) founded Best Breed to help improve the health of his patients through nutrition.  While some things have changed over the years, such as packaging going from buckets and barrels to high-barrier poly bags; one formula has grown to a full line of dog and cat foods; AND there are a few more grey hairs around our office these days!  One thing has not changed and that is our unwavering dedication to Dr Gary's founding principles, the most important of which is centered around quality and doing what is best for the dog or cat.

Over the years, in the highly-competitive pet food market, we often see companies compromise such principles by "engineering" their food to fit a certain price point or marketing campaign. Best Breed's mission is very simply: consistently produce a high-quality food for dogs and cats by using only the highest quality ingredients available and the results will speak for themselves. Nearly everyday we hear of a new story from a pet parent who can not believe how healthy and energetic their dog or cat is after switching to our food, then 2 weeks later we often hear from that person's friend or family member asking where he or she can buy Best Breed.  It is this basic word-of-mouth marketing, that has played a key role in taking our company from just a few stores to hundreds today.  No multi-million dollar marketing campaigns - just noticeably healthy pets!

We would like to extend a special heartfelt THANK YOU to those, past and present, who have and continue to trust us to feed their furry friend.  Thank you for the past 20 years - we can not wait to see what the next 20 brings!
