New facility space offers Dr. Elsey’s closer access to ingredient source

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Dr. Elsey’s, a veterinarian-owned cat product brand, has finished completion on a production facility in the state capital of Wyoming.

Located at Swan Ranch in Cheyenne, Wyoming, the brand’s new facility offers closer access to the source of silver sodium bentonite clay and better access to the railroad system used for product transportation.

“At 180,000 square feet, the new production facility, including rail shed, is four times the size of Dr. Elsey’s previous facility located in Englewood, Colorado,” said CEO Aaron Westcott.

The increase in space offers new opportunities for the brand to further expand its product line of solutions-based litter products for cats and meet the complex needs of pet owners.

“We try to speak for the cat,” said company founder Dr. Bruce Elsey. “Coming at this from a feline veterinarian perspective, I think we’ve been able to hone in on what cats need. We’ve always put ourselves in the pet’s paws, always identifying what is best for the animal, not for publicity.”

Dr. Elsey’s offers a variety of highly-rated litters, including Cat Attract™ and Ultra. The first of its kind, Cat Attract™ Litter is the only litter designed for cats that do not consistently use their litter box. Blended with a natural herbal attractant, Cat Attract™ is the problem cat training litter. Non-use of the litter box is the number one behavioral reason cats are abused or surrendered to shelters. Dr. Elsey’s works to keep cats in happy homes by offering a free Litter Box Solutions Booklet in every box or bag. Ultra, recently named “The Best Cat Litter” by Wirecutter, offers excellent clumping and prevents moisture from reaching the bottom of the litter box tray. This low-tracking litter is 99% dust free and keeps your home clean and odor-free.

Founded in 1987 with the first all-natural clumping cat litter, Dr. Elsey’s line of products has since grown to include a variety of premium litters that address the health and behavioral needs of cats in every stage of life. With the mission to enhance the lives of pets to the degree in which they enrich ours, Dr. Elsey’s strives to put heart, soul and science into their line of specialty cat litters and food.

Consumers Can Shop with Peace of Mind Buying Authentic Product Direct from the Manufacturer

Westmont, IL – February 2, 2021. Pet King Brands, Inc. announced their veterinarian-recommended ZYMOX Dermatology and Oratene Brushless Oral Care products for pets can now be purchased directly on the manufacturer’s website, www.zymox.com.

Consumers can now shop the entire line of authentic, enzyme-based pet care skin, ear and dental American-made products. Pet King Brands witnessed explosive sales during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic as first-time pet parents adopted and other pet parents expanded their family with the addition of new dogs, cats and other animals. The pandemic also had a profound impact on veterinary clinics and grooming shops services, forcing pet parents to find other means to care for their pets’ health care needs.

“While ecommerce grew exponentially with the demand for pet ear, skin and dental care products, many pet parents were facing a growing concern about counterfeit products on the marketplace and were seeking ways to purchase directly from the manufacturer,” said Pamela Bosco, President and founder of Pet King Brands. “We listened to the pet parents’ unwavering pleas to help provide authentic product that would provide relief for their pets’ health concern, and not harm them. In response, we are proud to be able to say ‘the store is open for business’ and consumers can shop with peace of mind!”

For more than twenty years ZYMOX and Oratene have helped pets have healthy mouths and find relief from painful ear infections and itchy allergy skin. The demand for the products has dramatically risen over the past two decades as veterinarians, pet parents, and groomers have sought out products that are free of antibiotics, harsh ingredients and made with quality ingredients made in America.

To learn more about the products or to purchase direct, visit www.zymox.com

About Pet King Brands, Inc.
