The food and supplement company

The pair joined
forces while seeking food for their companion animals that was not only

supplement will be followed by a pet treat, set to debut this summer, and a pet
food which the pair hope to release the following winter.


Errett told
PBN the supplement promises better digestion, and a ‘softer, shinier coat’ for
companion animals.

He added: “Our supplements contain over 250 million
active probiotic cultures, and antioxidant-dense fruit and vegetable powders.

“Our all-natural
ingredients contain essential minerals, prebiotics and omega 3 fatty acids.”

from bacteria, yeast and plants to create nutritionally-complete foods for dogs
and cats.”
