SupplySide West Podcast 82: Human Trends Continue in Animal Nutrition

Animal nutrition trends continue to be influenced by what's hot for humans--particularly when it comes to probiotics.

Affirming that pet trends are influenced by what’s hot for humans, a probiotic food topper for dogs and cats earned a 2017 Editor’s Choice Award (ECA) for best new animal nutrition product. In this podcast, recorded on location at SupplySide West in Las Vegas, Mika Wheelwright, CEO of Fidobiotics and Meowbiotics, discusses the development of probiotic products for animal nutrition. She and Karen Butler, content marketing manager, review:

• The importance of delivery format and palatability when formulating for pets.

• Striking the right balance of probiotics, prebiotics and enzymes in a digestive health product.

• What the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) Quality Seal indicates in the pet nutrition market.
