Dr. Marty Pets, manufacturer of premium freeze-dried raw dog and cat food and supplements, announces the grand opening of Golden Pet Manufacturing — a new processing facility in Richfield, Wis., that will operate under the company’s Golden Hippo affiliate. The opening of the new Golden Pet Manufacturing production facility is expected to bolster the vision to supply high-quality, health-supporting pet formulas globally and fine-tune the brand quality control, according to a release from the company.

The new factory will enable Dr. Marty Pets, in conjunction with Golden Pet Manufacturing, to personally monitor the quality of the ingredients and source its own raw ingredients.
