Dr. Willard’s® has been the “go-to” natural-pet-care leader for more than 40 years. For decades, countless industry leaders and veterinarians have been using Dr. Willard’s® products as part of their holistic approach to pet care. The Whole Dog Journal, the Encyclopedia of Natural Pet Care and the Holistic Guide for a Healthy Dog, among others have published articles in which pet owners share their positive stories regarding the numerous benefits their pets experienced while using Dr. Willard’s® products. Additionally, the beneficial properties of the company’s products for pets were featured on 60 Minutes in 1980, which highlighted the calming effects and improvement of digestion and absorption of nutrients of Dr. Willard’s® products for both humans and animals.
“We can’t imagine running a kennel without Dr. Willard’s® products,” said Wendy Volhard, renowned dog trainer and author of 13 books, including the popular Dog Training for Dummies and Holistic Guide for a Healthy Dog, which features an entire chapter on Dr. Willard’s® products. “Dr. Willard’s® has been a staple at our kennels for more than 35 years. We use it to treat minor wounds, skin problems, washing out ears and eyes and spray on dogs before grooming them. We put it into the dogs’ water bowls to help keep stress levels down when traveling. After surgery or any trauma, we use it in the dog’s food to ensure proper assimilation. Fabulous products and so easy to use — we have bottles in our kitchen, bathrooms and kennel. So happy that Dr. Willard’s® is coming out with this new pet care line.”
Dr. Willard’s® Natural Restorative Pet Care Kit has a low carbon footprint and is made in a special FDA-compliant facility with a 40-year spotless safety record. The launch of Dr. Willard’s Natural Restorative Pet Care® line captures the Willard Family’s personal experiences, environmentally and socially conscious spirit and their commitment to cruelty-free products and compassionate pet care. As part of the company’s commitment, for every Dr. Willard’s® Natural Restorative Pet Care Kit sold, CAW Industries, Inc. and Dr. Willard’s® will donate 75 cents (or 25 cents per bottle sold) to help support abused and neglected animals at animal shelters and rescues like one where the Willards adopted their dog from – Big Dogs Huge Paws.
“After seeing how my dog’s health and coat dramatically improved after using our products, I knew we needed to work hard to develop a natural, compassionate pet care line that could help and give back to even more dogs,” said Willard.

About Dr. Willard’s® Willard Water Dr. Willard’s Willard Water® was invented by Dr. John W. Willard Sr., a chemistry professor who received his PhD from Purdue University and worked on the United States’ atomic and plutonium bomb development teams. Willard had been seeking to develop a high density trace mineral water derived from fossilized organics in lignite when he “serendipitously” invented Dr. Willard’s Willard Water®. Created through a multi-faceted and patented process, Dr. Willard’s Willard Water® alters the molecular structure of regular water, causing it to become more reactive and thus a more efficient delivery system throughout the body. Dr. Willard’s Willard Water® also helps the body break down particles (food, nutrients, vitamins and toxins) in the digestive system which makes it easier for the body to process these particles, remove toxins, and more fully absorb the nutrients, minerals and vitamins that are consumed.
