Gluten-free Smart Fido USA™ and Smart Kitty USA™ Supplements and Treats Available for Pet Specialty
New products include veterinarian-formulated supplements and treats for dogs and cats.
Introducing two new product lines: Smart Fido USA™for dogs and Smart Kitty USA™ for cats. These veterinarian-formulated lines include a range of gluten- and soy-free supplements and treats.
Dale Metz, director of companion animal business unit at manufacturer Vets Plus, Inc. said, "Pet specialty shoppers want science and quality in the products they choose for their pets. Smart Fido USA and Smart Kitty USA products are formulated to meet these expectations with a solid basis in science and a list of high-quality ingredients that doesn’t include soy, gluten or artificial colors and flavors."
In research trials, grain-free Smart Fido USA soft chews have shown 95% palatability; dogs love the natural chicken flavor in these supplements which makes it easy to give dogs the targeted nutrition they need to support their daily living. Smart Fido USA supplements include formulas for joint and digestive support, calming or skin & coat, and other common conditions. The jerky bites treats are available in four delicious flavors featuring real Wisconsin cheese.
Even finicky cats have responded positively to the natural flavors of Smart Kitty USA supplements and treats, which are available in four flavors. The supplements address the most common conditions in cats, with grain-free formulas for hairball management, urinary tract support and L-Lysine. The cat treats contain probiotics and ingredients to support dental health.
Metz said, “We focus on making high-quality supplements that are convenient. Giving treats is a way we show our love for our pets and pilling is often a negative experience for pet and parent. With convenient soft chews, or functional treats, we can create a positive interaction for giving supplements.”

Vets Plus, Inc., the manufacturer of the new lines, is Safe Quality Food Level 3 certified and an audited member and preferred supplier of the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC).
