(PRESS RELEASE) MONTREAL — Pet wellness company Healthybud announced it has raised $650,000 CAD in a recent seed round, bringing its total funding to approximately $1 million CAD.

The capital Healthybud raised will be invested in paid marketing strategies and used to hire additional employees in sales, operations and marketing roles.

David Ngo led the round with participation from leading entrepreneurs in manufacturing, entertainment, advertising and consumer goods, as well as Bernard Prevost, co-founder of MissFresh, a Canadian online meal subscription service that was sold to Metro in 2017.

Ngo, who was vice-president of Earth Rated as it grew to be sold in over 25,000 stores across 40 countries, will provide Healthybud with general startup advice as well as guidance on key business activities.

“We’re proud of the high-quality, superfood-packed dog wellness products we’ve developed. Our key supply chain partners are ready to scale with us so we’re shifting focus to growth strategy, marketing and new acquisition channels,” said Kyle Feigenbaum, co-founder and CEO of Healthybud.

“After speaking with Healthybud’s founders for the first time, learning how they started Healthybud during the pandemic and grew it to where it was, I immediately knew they were the real deal. Not only do they have amazing products and an amazing brand, but their personalities, tenacity, and passion are what really attracted me to invest in their company and also come on as an advisor. I’m honoured and excited to be joining Healthybud on their journey and to be part of their success story,” said lead investor Ngo.

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. 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.
