Our Research & Innovation

A TEAM EFFORT

Our diverse team of researchers look for new and progressive ways to deliver top-quality pet care.

At the Hartz Mountain Research Center, our research team is made up of veterinarians, entomologists, engineers, chemists, nutritionists, and biochemists, all committed to providing you, your pet, and your family a safe environment. Our scientists are continually striving to develop exceptional products that are scientifically based and differentiated — while also offering the highest quality and best price/value. Likewise, they seek out new technologies that can be applied to products to bring you, the consumer, unique products that fulfill unmet needs and better enhance your pet’s wellness.

A cat toy isn’t just a piece of string nor is a dog treat just a piece of cookie dough in a bone shape. That’s why we devote ourselves to creating toys, treats, accessories, and much more — all designed to deliver quality along with health benefits for your pet. Our Dentist’s Best™ dog chews, for example, offer superior dental care, protecting your dog’s teeth from tartar and plaque. Our bird and fish foods are carefully blended to supply both optimal nutrition and taste. Likewise, we are serious about taking play to the next level with every cat toy we develop, by tapping into the instinctual play patterns of cats. With each product we create, we are thinking beyond the basics to deliver exceptional pet care.
