HistoryEdit

The company was founded in 1892, originally producing conditioning powders for dogs. Its main company, Bob Martin (UK) Limited, went into administration on 26 November 2019. However, the company's operations were able to survive and staff redundancies were avoided following a rescue deal offered by Pets Choice Limited which saw it take on the healthcare factory, assets and goodwill, as well as acquiring a licence for the brand.[2]

Current product rangeEdit

The company now markets and produces a wide range of flea, tick and worm products for family pets, pet nutritional supplements, a variety of pet foods, pet cleaning and hygiene products, products to remove pet odours, as well as natural and manufactured snacks and treats. These products are sold in the UK, Europe, and further afield. In 2007, according to Datamonitor, the company was the market leader for pet health care in South Africa.[3][4]

The company markets products for:

  • Dogs
  • Cats
  • Rabbits
  • Guinea pigs
  • Other small animals, i.e. hamsters, gerbils, and mice
