looking for pet supply manufacturer companies in the US

There are a lot of types of pet ‘supplies’ – what are you interested in? 


If you’re interested in pet food, major manufacturers include The Iams Company (a subsidiary of Procter & Gamble), Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Inc. (maker of Science Diet), Nestlé Purina PetCare, and Nutro Products.


If you’re interested in pet toys or accessories (such as beds), you might be interested in PETCO Animal Supplies, Inc., PetSmart, or Foster & Smith Inc.


If you want pet health, major companies include PetMed Express, PetCareRx., and KV Vet Supply Company (there is some overlap among companies for pet food, pet health, and pet accessories).


Both IU East and Ivy Tech subscribe to a number of databases that will help you find company information.  You chose a status of ‘IU East student’ but entered an Ivy Tech email address.  I’m assuming that you are an Ivy Tech student.


If so, the database Lexis Nexis has some business-related information; and the databases Academic Search Premier offers articles on many topics.  These are accessible online with Ivy Tech credentials.


IU East subscribes to several other databases that might be of more use, but if you’re not an IU East student, you would need to come into the library to use them.  They include Hoover’s Company Records (which has great overviews, financial information, fact sheets, and competitor links for the above listed companies), and the Business and Company Resource Center (which includes company profiles, magazine and journal articles, rankings, legal issues, and industry overviews).


Let me know if I can be of assistance in using these resources.

    Updates to Database Access

    Database Updates:

    Problem Accessing Fulltext in the ERIC Database


    From their website:


    Dear ERIC Community,

    In early August we discovered that sensitive personally identifiable information appeared in some full text documents contained in the ERIC collection. Specifically, social security numbers and other highly sensitive information were found in multiple documents and in a way that could not easily be isolated. For that reason, we had to temporarily disable access to many full text documents.

    Although these documents had been publicly available in microfiche for many years, the advent of Internet search engines has made it easier to find this information. Our number one concern is to ensure that any full-text documents we provide do not violate any individual's privacy. We believe that if any of us were to have our privacy compromised by an ERIC document, we would want the same consideration.

    We are seeking to restore access to documents as soon as possible. In order to restore access to ERIC, we have to check every document to see if it contains personally identifiable information. Due to the quality of many of the documents, a large portion of the search has to be done by hand. This is a large undertaking and we are in the process of hiring a team to help restore access in a fast and responsive manner. We hope to get this team in place by late September and releasing large numbers of ERIC documents by the end of October. We will continue to release documents after that point on a rolling basis.

    To minimize the burden on our users, we will prioritize searching the documents that users request. If you would like to request a PDF to be returned online, please email with the record number (such as ED263102). Documents will be returned on a rolling basis and may take several weeks, but we are working as fast as possible.

    We are sorry for the inconvenience and want to thank you for bearing with us through this unexpected delay.

    The ERIC Team
