Pet Specialty Ingredients for
Formulators

Vet and DogThorvin is one of the oldest and most powerful health food ingredients and natural supplements for pets. With more than 60 bioactive compounds, Thorvin belongs in your formula for glossy coats, clearer eyes, and optimal health.

Thorvin’s kelp contains a complex array of bioavailable minerals, vitamins, and beneficial phytonutrients, which are important for healthy metabolic function including digestion, skin and coat health, and immune response. Thorvin works by filling in micronutrient deficiencies and balancing minerals.

Thorvin is the preferred mineral supplement for pet formulations because it is entirely natural – harvested from the cleanest kelp beds on earth and dried at controlled low temperatures using geothermal energy. The most nutrient‐dense kelp on the market, Thorvin contains one‐third less moisture, 30% more iodine, and is the only kelp supplement with a guaranteed selenium claim.

Blend Thorvin into pet food formulations, supplements, and functional treats. It only takes small amounts (0.25 to 1% of dry matter) to support optimal health. Pets Thrive on Thorvin®.
