The Dr. Pol Brand to Debut the Following New Products at Global Pet Expo 2024

  • Dr. Pol and team are excited to debut their new canned dog and cat foods for their Dr. Pol® Limited Ingredient and Incredi-Pol™ Favorites food lines. Says Dr. Pol, “I am a firm believer that the #1 factor impacting an animal’s health and lifespan is nutrition. Working with Consumers Supply Distributing, these wet foods will complement our existing lines of dry dog and cat food that are already available.” These new canned products build upon the brand’s continued success and continue Dr. Pol’s commitment to make great quality pet foods at affordable prices!
  • The Dr. Pol brand is also introducing a new line of wound care products including Dr. Pol Incredi-Pol™ Wound Spray, Wound Gel, Ear Solution and Eye Drops. Dr. Pol is pleased to bring these efficacious and essential first aid products for all pets and animals to market with partner Innovacyn.
  • Grooming is something Dr. Pol believes is very important to the health of your pet. He is excited about partnering with Andis, and proud to introduce a new line of pet and animal grooming tools including pet clippers, nail grinders and other accessories to help pet owners feel comfortable maintaining their pets for health and wellness.
  • The Dr. Pol brand is also introducing several other new products to help pet owners with the care of their pets. These include pet shampoos, waterless shampoo and pet refresher, stain and odor remover, body mist and more. This collaboration with LabClean will help keep pets clean and owners happy.
  • Retailers and Dr. Pol fans alike will be excited to see that Dr. Pol will have an entire line of plush characters and farm animals coming in late 2024 for the whole family to enjoy!

Returning Favorite Product Standout Favorites

  • The Dr. Pol® Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Salmon Recipe is very popular with consumers, and for good reason. “With just six wholesome ingredients, this balanced and complete food offers pets the nutrition their bodies need without added ingredients that can cause the irritations or sensitivities I see regularly in my practice,” says Dr. Pol. “It’s one of the best products in my arsenal to eliminate potential food-driven issues.”
  • The Incredi-Pol™ Favorites dog and cat foods and treats have become a firm favorite with retailers and consumers alike. “We wanted to find the best balance between affordability and quality with this line by refining the ingredient panel while still keeping our eye on quality,” says CEO Charles Pol. The result is a very nutritious and competitively priced, quality product that has received rave reviews from both customers and the Pols’ own dogs. “I feed a blend of the Incredi-Pol™ Favorites beef and Incredi-Pol™ Favorites chicken, and if I don’t pour out the bags into our container right away, my dogs will rip open the bag and help themselves,” says Dr. Pol.
  • The Dr. Pol® Farm offerings include feed for horses, chickens, mixed flocks, goats, and rabbits. The Poultry Pearls (AKA the Layer feed and Mixed Flock feed) are particularly popular and stem from Dr. Pol’s son, Charles Pol’s, personal frustrations with feeds that birds scratch and sort, select favorites, and waste valuable nutrients. Ultimately resulting in poor egg quality and less healthy poultry, Dr. Pol understands the problem. The Dr. Pol® Farm Layer feed and Mixed Flock feeds work to solve these poultry challenges with an extruded kibble, about the size of a pearl. Consumers and their poultry agree and these products, along with the extruded horse and goat feed, are some of the brand’s top sellers.
  • “The Dr. Pol™ Pine Pellets cat litter from our partner Equustock has become an instant hit with consumers,” states Beth Pol, cat lover and COO of the Dr. Pol brand. “This natural product is an environmentally friendly, USDA certified biodegradable and compostable litter that has surprised us all with incredible sales. Clearly Dr. Pol understands what cat owners need, and we’re excited to see wide acceptance of this healthy litter option.”

According to Charles Pol, CEO, and Beth Pol, COO, “The Dr. Pol brand resonates with consumers, and our family of products has experienced tremendous growth over the last five years. We are focused on a capture and hold strategy. Consumers may try the products because they recognize ‘That guy from TV,’ but they continue to buy the products because we offer excellence at an affordable price. We’re very excited to be seeing continued growth and accessibility of the brand. As we grow our existing product lines, and expand into new lines, the Dr. Pol brand is dedicated to bringing high quality products that promote affordable health and wellness to owners across the country and the world. We’re also rapidly expanding accessibility of the brand into retailers throughout the US in traditional brick and mortar and .com. More than ever, consumers need a brand that can cut through the confusion of products and labels. The Dr. Pol brand understands this and will continue to curate product lines that pet owners and animal lovers know they can trust because Dr. Pol stands behind them.”

Watch the new show promo HERE.

An announcement for the new spin-off series, The Incredible Pol Farm, broke on People.com.

A true television icon, Dr. Pol has been featured in dozens of major media outlets such as USA Today, PEOPLE, Parade Magazine, TV Guide, AARP, New York Daily News, Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, and top TV shows including The Doctors, HLN, Fox & Friends, Home & Family, ABC News, Adult Swim, Good Day LA and many others. The story of the Dr. Pol brand goes back much further than the product lines themselves. In fact, the brand story stems back to 1954 when 12-year-old Jan Pol helped deliver a litter of piglets on his family’s dairy farm in the Netherlands. From that day on, Jan’s singular focus and passion was to care for animals. After graduating as a veterinarian, Dr. Jan Pol immigrated to the United States in 1971, and after ten years of practice, he moved to Weidman, Michigan in 1981 and founded Pol Veterinary Services out of his garage with his wife, Diane. With a down-to-earth, practical approach to veterinary medicine, Dr. Pol grew his practice from a humble start to one with over 25,000 clients. He has devoted his life to caring for the pets, livestock, and animals of farmers and pet owners in his rural Michigan community.

Specializing in large farm animals, Dr. Pol treats horses, pigs, cows, sheep, alpacas, goats, chickens and even an occasional reindeer. A true friend of the farmer, he works tirelessly to ensure that the diminishing population of family farmers remains in business. He plays an integral role in keeping farmers’ livestock healthy and their businesses profitable. Dr. Pol works with many 4-H groups and feels every child should grow up with a furry friend. He is also an advocate for affordable pet care.
