Who We Are
At ElleVet Sciences we are proud of the work we do and the way we go about finding new ways to help pets live better lives. As science-focused founders, our strength and our success came by developing a product based on the scientific and objective insight our research and the Cornell study provided. As pet owners and animal lovers, we are moved by the joy and increased health of our dog customers and their owners, inspiring our ongoing mission to create supplements that support the health and well being of the pets we love. Please allow us to take a moment to introduce our leadership team.
