An Open Letter To Our Loyal Customers -

Once again, Chinese pet jerky products are causing family pets to become very ill and in some cases die. As before, as soon as this info makes the news, the phone calls and emails pile in. The questions are always similar: Is Ark Naturals an American company? (Yes!) Is Ark manufactured in the USA? (Yes!) Are all the ingredients in every single Ark and or Gray Muzzle purchased in the USA from USA companies (Yes!) Is every ingredient in our products of USA origin? (No.) Which ingredients typically are not of USA origin? Glucosamine and Chondroitin.
Who determines the standards for Made in the USA? The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) makes that determination.
What do we mean by effective? Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM are just a few of the ingredients that have come to be known as nutraceuticals. A nutraceutical is something that starts from a natural source i.e. fish cartilage or bovine cartilage and then undergoes a process that isolates the beneficial characteristics of that natural ingredient. They are then compounded, processed and stabilized to provide the benefits of that particular raw material.
Did you know that glucosamine and chondroitin are sold in grades (level of effectiveness). Ark Naturals takes of this one step further as we only purchase “A” grade nutraceuticals and claim the effectiveness percentage on our labels.
Meaning that 500mg (on a label) is not a measure of quality. It is only a measure of weight. 500mg of a lesser grade of glucosamine or chondroitin is less effective than 500mg of an ingredient that is 99.9% pure.
