Press release: Holistic Hound
Holistic Hound, known for its organic CBD, CBG and functional mushroom supplements for pets, announced it has earned the Quality Seal from the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC). The NASC is a well-respected non-profit organization whose mission is to promote companion animals’ health and well-being and protect and enhance the animal health supplement industry.
“The NASC Quality Seal is awarded only to companies that have successfully passed a rigorous third-party quality audit and demonstrate compliance with NASC’s stringent quality standards, including strict labeling requirements and random product testing by an independent lab,” said Bill Bookout, NASC president. “Throughout the audit process, Holistic Hound showed us their unwavering commitment to achieving the highest standards of quality and consistency within the animal health industry. NASC proudly welcomes Holistic Hound as a newly audited member and applauds their integrity and leadership.”
The NASC Quality Seal identifies products from companies committed to quality, vigilance, and continuous improvement to promote the well-being of companion animals. The Quality Seal program is central to the NASC’s efforts to help elevate and standardize the animal health supplement industry. To obtain permission to display the Quality Seal on their products and marketing materials, NASC member companies must successfully pass an independent facility audit every two years and demonstrate ongoing compliance, including random product testing by an independent lab to ensure ingredients meet label claim.
“We’re thrilled to have this seal that confirms we adhere to the highest standards for our four-legged friends and their parents,” says Ian Butler, Holistic Hound operations manager. “We love getting letters from happy pet parents telling us how much their dogs and cats have thrived on our products, and this is just one more vote of confidence for our consumers that Holistic Hound is committed to only using the highest quality ingredients and utilizing best-in-class manufacturing processes.”
Holistic Hound’s premium line of CBD and CBG oils, bites, chews, mushroom powder and balm are designed to provide holistic health and wellness throughout all life stages for both cats and dogs. Its USDA certified organic hemp products are veterinarian-formulated, carry the NASC Quality Seal and are distributed wholesale to independent pet stores nationwide.
The National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) is a nonprofit trade association whose mission is twofold: to promote the health and well-being of companion animals and horses given animal health supplements by their owners, and to protect and enhance the animal health supplement industry. What began as a grassroots effort with 18 founding member companies has grown into the leading voice for the industry, representing over 275 manufacturers of animal health and nutritional supplements, plus more than 100 vetted supplier companies that provide NASC members with raw materials, contract manufacturing, laboratory testing and other professional services. The NASC’s successful leadership and advocacy actions over the last 20 years have helped to shape and secure the future of the industry and ensure quality products remain available to all stakeholders. Look for the yellow NASC Quality Seal on supplements for dogs, cats and horses to know you are buying from a responsible supplier that has passed a comprehensive third-party audit and maintains ongoing compliance with rigorous NASC quality requirements.
