Amy Budd is the Founder of Big Bear Pet Company and has been critter crazy her whole life! Her initial path in college was veterinary medicine but after working in a clinic after obtaining her bachelors and realizing she was the worst combination of Dr. Doolittle and Dr. Hariett, it became obvious that was not the best plan. Amy came to the pet industry almost 20 years ago somewhat by accident, initially wanting to provide baked treats for horses and dogs. Her passion grew beyond yummy treats for tail wags and whinnies, into wanting to provide premium nutrition for beloved family members. As her knowledge base grew about the industry it fueled the fire to provide real, whole food for pets that owners could trust.
During this episode Amy shares what she is seeing in the industry and why she decided to make her own food, going over and above the minimum guidelines.
