Nature’s Farmacy was founded in 1984 by Jeanette Pickett in her quest to better the health and well-being of her beloved Great Danes. Not only are Great Danes a giant breed and therefore tend to suffer the traditional giant breed maladies – short life span, joint issues, etc. – they are also known for their higher instances of bloat. No one wants to lose a beloved companion to Bloat. It is to that end that Jeanette spent hours upon hours of research, not only by reading published studies, speaking to other researchers and veterinarians, but also through her own experiences as a breeder and successful competitor in the dog show ring since 1968, as well as listening to her fellow Great Dane breeders, show competitors and any other avid Great Dane enthusiasts who had a story to tell and experiences to share. With that expansive knowledge base and combined wisdom, she has been whole heartedly recommending probiotic supplementation to the dog lovers’ community since the early 1980’s. Only now has the rest of the world caught on to the need for probiotic supplementation and it’s been almost 40 years of sharing it for Nature’s Farmacy! In addition to the use of probiotics and enzymes comes a whole food, species appropriate homemade diet and a superior vitamin mineral omega blend for complete base nutrition. The combinations of which see our Great Danes living full happy lives on average from 12 to 14 years and beyond!
During the last 3-4 decades, Nature’s Farmacy has grown to be the place for dog show professionals, and now pet owners worldwide, to turn to for the best nutritional help for their dogs.
