About Southeast Pet

A combination of front-office expertise and back-office efficiency has shaped Southeast Pet since it opened its doors as Southeast Aquatics in 1975. Two years later, founders Greg and Holly Judge saw an opportunity to expand beyond fish and invested in a small pet supply company. Succeeding as a distributor to independent pet retailers requires independent thinking. This does not mean simply filling orders but fueling retailer growth by understanding the difference between trends and fads and offering an innovative mix of premium products and unsurpassed customer service. Greg and Holly’s son, Ryan, joined the business in 2000. Together, the Judges have built Southeast Pet into one of the nation’s most respected pet supply and food distributors. In 2015, the Judges sold 100% of the company to the employees as an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). This translates to a team 100% committed to the company and our customers. Based in Metro Atlanta, Southeast Pet’s 133,000-square-foot distribution center supplies retailers in six southeastern states with the new products and fresh ideas retailers need to stay competitive in this fast-changing industry. A second distribution center opened in 2013 in Lakeland, FL, services the Florida market. For more about Southeast Pet, please visit:

But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
