Since its founding more than 20 years ago, Wholistic Pet Organics has specialized in natural, organic, high quality foods and supplements for dogs, cats, and horses.
For the Phillips family, animals have always been more than just pets – they’re family members. For decades, the Phillips were also involved in the dog and horse show world, and raised and bred championship Dobermans. With this shared passion for animals, along with backgrounds in biology, chemistry, biochemistry, nutrition, and animal health sciences, John (Jack) and the late Alexandria (Sandy) Phillips were among the first to identify the need for true holistic pet foods and supplements. Though they wanted nothing but the best food for their animal companions, there was nothing on the market that met their standards. Realizing there was a desperate need for a new way of thinking about pet health, using natural, wholesome, and healthy diets, the animal-loving due set out to develop their own line of holistic and natural alternatives to fill the void. In 1998, Jack and Sandy founded Wholistic Pet Organics®, during a time when the words “holistic” and “organic” weren’t common in the pet industry.
From its inception, the company’s mission has been to help animals live happier, healthier lives free of avoidable health problems. “We believe there will continue to be a movement away from chemical-laden, inferior quality pet products towards healthy, all-natural alternatives,” says Ryan Phillips, COO of Wholistic Pet Organics. “Our animals depend totally and completely on us; they deserve the very best we can give.”
It’s no surprise that quality is the foundation of the company. Their products contain only natural and organic whole, raw foods, without any fillers, synthetics, GMOs, or artificial ingredients. “Our products are pure and more potent – they are also naturally great-tasting!” says Ryan. Thousands of customer success stories confirm that these one-of-a-kind products have improved their animals’ quality of life and longevity. “When your pets are family, you will do anything and everything to spend just one more day with them,” Ryan says. “Because of this, we put our whole heart and soul into what we do.”
The Phillips family and their team continue to go above and beyond to ensure their customers are provided with only the best when it comes to health products and supplements for their animals. Each of their products undergoes rigorous testing, and bears the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) Quality Seal – an indicator of the company’s dedication to the highest standards of quality.
“As animal lovers, we also use our platform to further help animals that are not fortunate enough to have loving families,” says Ryan. “We plan and host adoption events with local shelters, and donate to many different animal care and protection organizations. We also host major events with cookouts, raffles, games, music, and more! All our efforts help animal rescue groups who sacrifice their time to find forever homes for abandoned animals.”
Wholistic Pet Organics continues to be a true family endeavor of love and passion, promoting health for all beloved companion animals. Although Sandy passed away several years ago, her lifelong commitment will be continued by her family and their work through the company – and legacy – she helped create.
