AUSTIN, Texas — Super-premium brand Nulo Pet Food announced Dec. 4 it has partnered with Kane Veterinary Supplies Ltd., a Canadian distributor, to extend its products into the northern market. Kane will distribute Nulo’s FreeStyle and FrontRunner dog and cat foods to independent retail locations throughout Canada.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with Kane," said Michael Landa, founder and CEO of Nulo. "They are the perfect match to help grow Nulo's portfolio across the pet specialty channel here in Canada.”

Nulo’s FreeStyle formulas include dry kibble, freeze-dried raw and wet canned complete-and-balanced diets for both cats and dogs, as well as supplemental broths, and wet and dry treats. The brand’s FrontRunner line features six high-meat kibble diets for dogs.
