Safety First

Our dedication to strict safety standards is uncompromising.

We manufacture, store and ship our products from FDA registered facilities. We follow the strict rules outlined by the Good Manufacturing Process (GMP) Safe Quality Food (SQF) code.

A qualified third-party inspector audits our safety program. Their reviews include personnel practices, plant maintenance and cleanliness.

SQF certification requires a company to prove exceptional quality control and safety practices. Our facility achieved the highest level for a food (including human food) facility: SQF level 3.

That means we follow strict safety standards to ensure no corners are cut.


Pets Are Our Passion

Best Friend’s Essentials contributes a part of every sale to CalAnimals. CalAnimal’s mission is to support animal welfare and shelter organizations to meet the needs of animals and people in their communities.


Only The Best

We make it easy to give your pet the right nutrients. There are a lot of choices for pet supplements. We source only the highest quality ingredients, because your pet’s health isn’t something we’re willing to risk.

Unlike most other supplement manufacturers, our soft chews are made without using heat, water, or gumming agents. Heat can deteriorate a product’s effectiveness (as it does with kibble). Using water requires high levels of preservatives to extend shelf life and prevent mold. Gumming agents control moisture, but they can cause digestive problems. We use a cold extrusion process.

This process preserves the efficacy and flavor of our products, without the use of heat, water or gumming agents. Our process preserves the texture, flavor, and benefits of all ingredients without any of these downsides.

About Us

Best Friend's Essentials® was founded by the Dog Dad of Gerty. Gerty was a beautiful Maltese who had severe allergies and digestive issues. Her Dad tried everything from prescription medications, fancy dog foods and countless supplements. Nothing worked.

While struggling to give her pills, he had an a-ha moment: what if there was a supplement that tasted like a treat? The result was Best Friend's Essentials®, natural supplements that taste good and do good.
