THE PACK PANEL
Meet THE PACK Panel, our specially selected group of experts, veterinarians, scientists, and pet parents in their own right, with decades of collective experience in pet health, animal nutrition, and food science under their belts. In other words, meet the pack behind THE PACK.
Together, they’re making sure that every single recipe — and by extension, every single bowl of your dog’s food — is nutritionally-complete and drool-inducing.
There’s practically nothing these guys don’t know about pet health, so you can feel safe in the knowledge that THE PACK is 100% science backed and expert approved.
They continue to advise us and support our mission to this day. Let’s say hello.
