Home Manufacturing Facility


All of LifeStages’ Pet Nutrition products are manufactured using the Quality Management System to create the highest quality of products. That high quality standard continues throughout the creation process – from research to testing to manufacturing – to ensure that our products meet human-grade quality standards. We thoroughly test each Pet Nutrition ingredient and final formulation batch for safety and efficacy at multiple phases of production. See Facility {link} for more information on our ingredient selection and testing.

We believe that we have the best people (and pets!) working with us. Our LifeStages’ facility is staffed with a dedicated group of customer service representatives, supporting staff, scientists, and manufacturing professionals who all work together to perfect every aspect of the manufacturing process.

How do we make LifeStages Pet Nutrition?

Here at LifeStages we are dedicated to providing your dog safe, effective, high-quality nutrition. From formulations and ingredient sourcing to manufacturing and shipping, our Quality Management System is specifically designed to impact every step of the process.
  • RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT: Our team of experts {link to Formulated by Experts}, including biochemists, master herbalists, pet nutritionists, and veterinarians, collaborate to develop formulas most beneficial to each dog life stage.

  • QUALITY CONTROL: We guarantee, through certificates of analysis, that our product will meet all its label claims from the time it’s created through the entirety of its stated shelf life. We vigilantly ensure that our operations are fully compliant with cGMPs. We use an independent, third-party quality verification system.

  • INGREDIENTS: Once we decide on a specially-formulated blend, we source the highest-quality ingredients from around the world, and test those for identity, potency, and purity at our FDA good grade facility {link to above paragraph/top of page}. This ingredient testing process repeated throughout the manufacturing pro cess, and with the finished product. Any ingredient that fails to meet our high standards is rejected. See Ingredient Standards {link} for more information on ingredient selection and testing.

  • VIP TASTE TESTING: Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we serve our Pet Nutrition to our VIP’s (Very Important Pets). We want all of our willing canine taste-testers to gobble up the Pet Nutrition – validating its palatability for all ages, breeds, and the pickiest of eaters.

  • MOVING FORWARD: We continue to innovate as we receive customer feedback and draw on our own experiences as pet parents. Our dedication to creating high-performance pet nutrition will keep us innovat ing and thriving, so your pet can, too.
