Science Based Pet Nutrition

Everything, from the nutrients in our diets, to the ingredients providing those nutrients, are backed by evidence of safety, efficacy and benefit. Scientific literature regarding essential nutrient requirements, and additional beneficial nutrients are backed up with our own trials, where appropriate.

At Vivus we work hand in hand with leading researchers in the field, our methods and formulations are guided by an ever-changing world of scientific discovery! Our team not only includes a board-certified veterinary nutritionist, but human food technologists and scientists, who bring their expertise in making food, not feed.

Our goal is always to nourish, not just sustain, our fur-mily.

These yummy, bite-sized, nutritious treats are the perfect high-value tidbits for training and rewarding your pup! The treats feature wholesome ingredients, combined into a mouth-watering, tasty, hypoallergenic treat. These treats are protein packed thanks to the beans, chickpeas and nutritional yeast. Miso, a fermentation product, packs an umami punch, but, more importantly, is full of probiotics and vitamins to promote a healthy gut. Hemp oil, flax seeds, and algae oil bring complimentary omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids for anti-inflammatory, skin and coat health.
