Product Information Resources

The following is a list of references, helpful product information, and links to animal health-related websites in order to provide applicants to The Pet Fund a comprehensive and accessible resource for enhancing their animals’ health and well being. 

While The Pet Fund makes no guarantees, expressed or implied, about the use of any product or preventative health measure listed below, we hope that applicants for funding, veterinarians, and our corporate partners will find this resource for information helpful and choose responsibly among the options for developing good preventative care practices for companion animals. This information does not substitute for professional veterinary care.

Part of good preventative care practice for pets includes speaking with your veterinarian about recommended diet and pet care products to determine what is right for your pets. 

For more information about preventative care for pets, click on the “Preventative Care” link. For information about financial assistance with pet care, click on the “Financial Assistance Resources” link.

The Pet Fund is partly funded by corporate sponsors whose products and services further the goals of keeping companion animals out of shelters through preventative care and access to medical treatment.

We thank our corporate sponsors for their ongoing commitment to make a positive impact by helping to fund needed medical care for companion animals.
