H&C Animal Health Founder, Chuck Latham, grew up on a farm outside of Memphis, Tennessee. Surrounded by a family of veterinarians, Chuck was raised with a deep love and appreciation of animals.
As a veteran of the animal healthcare industry, Chuck saw a need to make effective pet healthcare products more affordable and accessible. With an extensive background in Animal Science and a passion for bringing innovative products from Veterinary to Retail, he started H&C Animal Health in 2013.
H&C Animal Health, named after Chuck’s grandparents, Henry and Clemmie, was created to bring products to retail that enhance the lives of both pets and their owners. The company started with just one product, ActivPhy Joint Health, and today has eight brands and continues to grow!
Innovative products, made by pet lovers – for pet lovers.
At H&C, our commitment to pet health means we bring only the most innovative, highly effective and clinically proven products from veterinary to retail.
