Board of Advisors
Our Board of Advisors is an exceptional group of practicing veterinarians and scholars with deep experience and passion for holistic care of animals. They actively assist us with product research and closely examine the active ingredients in each of our formulas to ensure product safety and efficacy. Specifically, this group provides feedback on:
- Active and inactive product ingredients
- Indications for the product (intended use or uses)
- Therapeutic Principles
- Background Information (rationale for product)
- Individual active ingredient descriptions, as they pertain to their inclusion in the formula
- Cautionary information
- Quality information
We are honored to call these individuals our Advisors and thank them for helping us make the best products possible. Our current Board of Advisors include:

"I joined the Pet Wellbeing Board because I believe the individuals on this Board have extensive knowledge and experience to accurately assess the medicinal benefits of these products. I practice evidence-based medicine and feel it is my obligation to contribute to the scientific study of the medicinal supplements and therapies I offer my patients."

"I wanted to be part of the Pet Wellbeing Board because I wanted input on the production of products that are needed by my patients. Ethically sourced, quality ingredients formulated with scientific and traditional knowledge are of utmost importance to my patients, my clients and myself. This gives me a chance to influence which formulae are produced and to critique and change existing formulae as the need arises. As a practitioner and a specialist, I see this as an opportunity to partner with a company that wants to make a difference in the lives of my patients."
Joseph J. Wakshlag DVMDoctor of Veterinary Medicine, PhDDoctorate of Philosophy in Pharmacology, DACVNDiplomate of the American College of Veterinary Nutrition, DACVSMRDiplomate of the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation
"I decided to join the Pet Wellbeing board to work towards safe and effective supplementation that can effectively treat disease or promote health. The bioactive ingredients in herbs and plants are the genesis of many products that are used today in the pharmaceutical industry, and appropriate blends and doses are essential to effective treatment. In this ever changing arena of pet supplementation it is important to provide well designed products that can make a difference."
Justin Shmalberg DVMDoctor of Veterinary Medicine, DACVNAmerican College of Veterinary Nutrition, DACVSMRDiplomate of the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, CVACertified Veterinary Acupuncturist, CVFTCertified in Veterinary Food Therapy, CVCHCertified Veterinary Chinese Herbalist
"Natural supplements are increasingly popular for pets and are often recommended by veterinarians. I remain excited about the prospect of merging the most recent scientific investigations of such products with their traditional uses and indications. A handful of veterinary researchers have begun to study natural compounds and their effects on common diseases with encouraging results. Pet owners deserve strong evidence-based information about the best practices for giving supplements to their animals, and I hope to contribute my experience in the field of integrative medicine."
