Lou Dalwin, the grandfather of Loving Pets’ Founder and President Eric Abbey, was one of the original founding members of APPMA (now APPA). Working for Aquarium Stock Company, an aquatic company founded in the early 1900’s, Lou took over that business around 1930 and owned it through the 1980’s. Aquarium Stock Company was a whole city block in Manhattan and had over 10,000 aquariums and aquatic products. Before there was a New York Aquarium, bus and school tours used to visit ASC to learn about fish, plants and aquatic species; ASC partnered with the Sears Roebuck catalog starting in the 1950s, so for the first time, people could order aquatic products including live fish all over the United States; Eric’s father, Kenneth Abbey worked for Lou (his father in law), and then launched Petcetera in 1972 and operated that until 2006. Eric started working with his father in 1994 doing sales, marketing and product development. Eric’s mother is a world-renowned nutritionist, radio show host, researcher, and author and was a huge influence on him and his education about healthy, all-natural ingredients and their corresponding health benefits, which translates every day into the ingredients chosen for Loving Pets treats.

Jonathon, previously a rugby player competing at international level with England School boys and Students previously worked at the British Standards Institution on food safety standards. “Our ambition is to bring manufacturing home, Like our US partners. We want to develop all-natural UK treats for the European market”. Loving Pets continues to focus its efforts on healthier, all-natural pet treat options.

Dedicated attention to ingredients, high-quality products and affordability are the standards that set Loving Pets apart from competition.
