Research & Product Development Jobs

You're probably also looking at healthcare, pharmaceutical, human food and technology companies before even considering pet care, yes? Here's what you may not know: we're working on innovative foods and formulas that rival those same industries – foods and formulas that can extend the lives and cognitive function in maturing dogs and cats. We're developing ways to improve the vision of cats and minimize pet allergies. We were the first ever to extrude dry dog food and we're backed by a lengthy list of patents – a portfolio of industry firsts.

Over 500 scientists make everything we think about come to life. We're nutritionists, chemists, immunologists, microbiologists and the alike. But what we do stretches far beyond our titles. It's a dare we accepted from the very beginning – the dare to Stand Taller.

Product Specialist
