About TruPet, LLC.
TruPet, LLC and TruDog, a division of TruPet, were founded in 2013 by Lori Taylor. The family-owned animal health company based in Ohio currently employs 52 animal-loving employees. The company began after founder Lori Taylor lost her Great Dane, Truman, to cancer at an early age. Determined to find out why her vibrant dog developed cancer, she set out to learn the truth about pet products. Through her research, she discovered that most commercial products simply do not provide the level of nutrition and quality that dedicated pet parents demand, so she developed her own brand of freeze dried, biologically appropriate raw products for dogs. TruDog is the first division of TruPet LLC, which is currently launching lines of food, supplements, and pet care products for dogs, cats, and horses. The company is named in honor of Truman, the Great Dane who sparked the search for better pet products.
