WellPaws USA was created out of our need to find SAFE supplements for our furry family members. Not sourced from China. It was nearly impossible!
There are plenty of products claiming to be made in the USA, but they are made from foreign substances. Sadly, the FDA does little to protect us from the shabby and sometimes shocking handling of imported ingredients.
Imported ingredients are often unregulated. That means inconsistent quality, lack of purity, the inability of ingredients to properly assimilate, and more.
It can mean a sick dog or, at the very least, expensive pee.
√ The law allows manufacturers to label their product "Made in the USA" even if the ingredients are cheaply processed "who-knows-what" from China!
√ Some countries do not test or regulate ingredients, so you may not be getting what is on the label.
√ Inferior ingredients make expensive pee.
The FDA only inspects 1% - 2% of all the food imported from China... Even when they inspect a shipment, they rarely test it for heavy metals, pesticides, PCBs or other toxic contaminants.

...made from pork treated with chemicals, dye made from beetles, paraffin wax and industrial salts to make it look (and taste?!?) like beef.
...remedies contain endangered animals and toxic plants. "There's no honesty in the labeling of these products," says Mike Bruce...who lead the study. "Most have not been proven effective.
Pet jerky treats, mostly imported from China, are now linked to more than 1,000 deaths in dogs, more than 4,800 complaints of animal illness, and, for the first time, sickness in three people...
that unless the supplements you give your dog are both SOURCED and MADE IN USA you may be risking your dog's life! It will matter now as much to you as it does to us.
12 year old acting like a puppy again...
"Thanks for a great (WONDERFUL!!!) product! Our 12-year old Poodle Tasha is acting like a puppy again. It's absolutely wonderful. We told our neighbor about your product because their Pekinese Sasha was having some serious age-related joint problems that pretty much had her just lying around all day. Three weeks after they put Sasha on the formula, she was bouncing around the house like a little puppy. What a wonderful product!
I seldom do things like writing testimonials, but I am so thrilled with the results..."
