PALMETTO, FLA. — Pet product distributor Choice Pet Products announced two new partnerships with pet food and supplement manufacturers Snappy Tom and WildPaw. Choice Pet will carry both brands’ products, offering them to independent pet retailers.

Snappy Tom specializes in wet cat food products. According to the brand, it processes its own products at its own facilities to maintain strict quality control over all its formulas. Snappy Tom’s wet cat foods are manufactured in a human-grade facility approved by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

“Our slogan, ‘Real Fish for Real Cats,’ fits the mission of Choice Pet Products in bringing Natural Grain Free wet cat food products to their region,” said Robert Hernandez, national sales manager for North America. “We are very excited to add Choice Pet Products to our team of distributors in North America. Our brand meets the needs of cats in all life stages and the owners who look for simple ingredients. There is no need to get a dictionary to determine our ingredients. We feel Choice Pet Products is the perfect partner to distribute our products today and into the future.”

Snappy Tom’s formulas are made with all-natural ingredients and are suitable for cats of all ages.

“With the growing demand of cat owners searching for high-protein food, we are thrilled to partner with Snappy Tom and offer our independent pet retailers a food with a taste kittens and adult cats find naturally delicious,” said Rob Emery, owner of Choice Pet Products. “We also know that many owners are equally as focused on buying foods with responsibly sourced ingredients, and the fish included in Snappy Tom products are collected through dolphin-safe practices and do not use tuna collected in fish aggregating devices.”

Choice Pet has also partnered with WildPaw, a pet wellness brand that offers a line of premium dog supplements called Wonder Bites. With a focus on high-quality ingredients, WildPaw’s supplements are made with vitamins, minerals and hemp, offering support for specific health concerns, including joint mobility, skin and coat health, allergies, immune function and overall wellness.

“We are incredibly excited about our distribution partnership with Choice Pet Products and know their distribution reach will ensure these supplements are readily available to pet parents,” said Justine Micks, product development manager at WildPaw. “Each ingredient in our supplements has been thoughtfully chosen and sourced from trusted suppliers who share our passion for quality. We have meticulously scrutinized every aspect of the formulation. For example, we use premium ingredients like sweet potatoes to bind the supplements, no artificial fillers. With WildPaw, pet owners can be confident that they are providing their beloved companions with the very best.”

WildPaw’s supplements are made in the United States, using both domestic and internationally sourced ingredients. The brand’s Wonder Bites are free from common dog allergens, artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, gums and fillers.

“We are excited to add WildPaw to our expanding portfolio of supplements and supply our customers with a product that has an irresistible flavor and an even more impressive range of health benefits,” Emery said. “We value the passion and commitment WildPaw has for helping dogs live active, healthy lives and we look forward to improving dogs’ lives together.”
