What does it take to become a pet industry leader and continue to serve pet parents for over 25 years? 

According to Billy Bosco, research and development specialist at Pet King Brands, “All good companies start with a passion to help those in need.” 

Pet King Brands is proud to continue its work as a pet industry leader for over 25 years and continues to experience consistent growth and pet parent satisfaction since its founding in 1998. Because Pet King Brands continue with the same care and standards they have from day one, through it’s ZYMOX® line of veterinary-strength pet health products without antibiotics.

The Roots of Pet King Brands

Dog mom Pamela K. Bosco had a rescue German Shepard, Elizabeth, who suffered from chronic ear infections. Nothing was helping Elizabeth so she turned to her bioscientist brother, Michael Pellico, who was the formulator of Biotene® (later sold to GlaxoSmithKline) and other enzyme-based healthcare products for women.

After witnessing the rapid improvement and healing of Elizabeth’s ears, Bosco was inspired to turn ZYMOX into the market’s first enzyme-based pet care product. She seized the opportunity to offer her products when antibiotic resistance was a major concern not only for people, but also the pets they loved. Bosco launched Pet King Brands with three products that utilized the advanced enzyme technology of the patented LP3 Enzyme System, developed by Pellico.

The Road to a Silver Anniversary 

The pet industry has had its ups and downs, but Pet King Brands has never waivered in offering non-toxic, non-irritating, antibiotic-free solutions through veterinarians, groomers, pet specialty retailers, and online. 

As a result, the power of ZYMOX’s LP3 enzyme system has continued to resolve ear, skin, and oral conditions for over 25 years. 

It’s not only dogs and cats Pet King Brands serves. ZYMOX Dermatology products also help horses, reptiles, birds, and exotic animals. Today, the Pet King Brands family of products includes solutions for ears, skincare, and Oratene® the brushless oral care product family that has helped older pets, those on medications, and others with chronic dental problems find relief. 

The Pet Industry Sits Up and Takes Notice

Over its 25-year history, the pet industry awarded Pet King Brands numerous accolades, including:

  • Best in Show at Global Pet Expo 2023 for ZYMOX Zylafen topical solution for reptiles
  • Pet Age Magazine 2019 ICON Award to Pamela K. Bosco
  • Pet Age Magazine Women of Influence Award 2019: Pamela K. Bosco
  • Vanguard Award for Ear Care 2021 by Pet Insight Magazine
  • Dogster Magazine Editor’s Choice Award

Pet parents also sing the praises of ZYMOX products, from providing relief to ear infections and reducing inflammation and itching of the skin to helping their pet’s skin and coat look its best.

Congratulations, Pet King Brands, and here’s to the next 25 years and beyond!
