We look forward to leveraging our consumer and pet category experience to help PetHonesty expand its brand and reach new customers.”

Arneberg said: “Our vision was to create the most trusted pet health company that empowers pet owners to offer their pets healthier and higher quality lives, and our partnership with Vestar is the next step in that journey.
