AvoDerm® premium dog and cat food formulas are loaded with high-quality meat proteins, antioxidant nutrients plus vitamins and minerals for inside health and California avocados for healthy skin and coat on the outside.
AvoDerm® is formulated and produced by Breeder's Choice Pet Foods. An industry innovator in new product development since its early days of providing high-quality, diet-specific foods to breeders and zoos, the company is regarded by the industry as one of the purest, premium makers of natural pet foods for dogs and cats. Although many of its products were developed for specific pet health concerns, all are intended to be used as ongoing preventative care in adding longevity to a pet’s life.
Breeder’s Choice initially made its mark among mainstream consumers when it introduced the novelty of frozen pet meals in 1947. In 1960, the line expanded to include the company’s first oven-baked kibble and biscuits, which exceeded the minimum pet food nutritional requirements in an effort to be the most nutritious products available. A bakery was eventually added to the Irwindale facility in the mid 1960’s, and today still operates, producing the company’s all-natural, oven-baked pet foods and treats around the clock.
While hard work and excellent products gave Breeder's Choice steady growth over the years, it was a chance encounter with the avocado that put the company on the map. A local co-op grower had an excess supply of avocados one season and asked the company if it would be able to use the fruit in its dog food. It was common knowledge that avocados had been successfully used in cosmetic and beauty aides for years, however, after extensive research, the company found that certain avocado ingredients were also helpful in curing skin and coat problems with animals. The company launched its flagship success story in 1982, with its line of AvoDerm® dog and cat food, which quickly became the company’s and one of the industry’s best-selling products. Consumer feedback called AvoDerm® a “miracle” product.
