At Mars Petcare, we believe that pets make the world a better place. 

 

We have one Purpose: A BETTER WORLD FOR PETS

Through comprehensive veterinary care, nutrition, breakthrough programs in diagnostics, wearable health monitoring, DNA testing and pet welfare, our 100,000 Petcare Associates help pets in more than 130 countries. For decades we’ve supported research into the incredible science of human animal interaction at the Waltham Petcare Science Institute where scientists discover important advances in pet health and wellness. We are a part of Mars, Incorporated, a global, family-owned business with a focus on becoming Sustainable in a Generation. Follow us on Instagram and LinkedIn and explore our open positions.

Our businesses are imagining a more sustainable future

 

Our Purpose: A BETTER WORLD FOR PETS also means a more sustainable world for pets, people and for the planet.  

As part of the Mars Sustainable in a Generation plan, we’re integrating sustainability into the heart of our business and bringing even more innovative, sustainable choices and services to pet owners around the world. 

We’re focused on driving sustainable practices to improve our environmental pawprint, operating and sourcing responsibly, and expanding access for pets and influencing policy.

We're also engaging with partners like the World Wildlife Fund and using our influence to drive change at scale.   

 

At Mars Petcare, we have an ambition to End Pet Homelessness.

To better understand the issue, we teamed up with leading animal welfare experts and organizations around the world and together we developed the State of Pet Homelessness Index. This data tool pulls together credible, consistent data to measure the scale of the pet homelessness issue at a country level. The index also helps us understand the problem and the reasons why pets are homeless, by country.

 

Our science is shaping the future of veterinary care. We're also supporting researchers in their efforts to understand the amazing bond we share with our pets

We’re on a mission to improve the lives of pets by better understanding their needs through science. Researchers at the Waltham Petcare Science Institute are working with veterinary teams and data scientists from across our entire Petcare business and leading research organizations worldwide to advance personalized pet healthcare, so pets can stay healthy for longer. 

We’re also supporting quality research to better understand how our relationships with pets might benefit our mental and physical health. With social isolation and loneliness on the rise in the U. S. and around the world, we’ve partnered with leading organizations like the Human Animal Bond Research Institute and the National Institutes of Health to help scientists understand the role pets could play to address this serious public health problem.

How AI can help veterinarians spot disease risk early

Together with veterinarians and data scientists across Mars Petcare, Waltham Petcare Science Institute researchers built the first AI-driven tool accurately predicting a cat’s risk of developing chronic kidney disease two years before it’s diagnosed.

Could therapy dogs help aging adults cope with loneliness?

We’re supporting a pioneering study by the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) School of Medicine’s Center for Human-Animal Interaction and its Dogs on Call therapy dog program to find out if dog therapy can ease loneliness for aging adults recovering in hospitals. 

 

Delivering high-quality, compassionate veterinary care for every pet

Science and data are at the heart of our veterinary business. That way we can make sure we’re providing high-quality, accessible care for pets, from preventive veterinary care and wellbeing to specialist services.

Prevention is better than cure

Banfield Pet Hospital figures shine a light on the most common but preventable pet health issues.

Analyzing data from the more than 3 million pets seen at the practice annually, a recent Banfield Pet Hospital report confirms a concerning reality: some of the most common but preventable illnesses are still seen in many pets, including dental health issues or heartworm. Read more about the findings, how costly treatments are compared to prevention and how regular veterinary checks can help keep these illnesses at bay.

Natusan aims to cut emissions via composting

Every month, Natusan, UK’s first circular-economy cat litter company, delivers fresh eco-friendly cat litter to customers’ doorsteps, collecting the soiled cat litter and composting it – keeping the soiled litter from ending up in the landfill, where it would greenhouse gases and contaminate groundwater. Once composted, Natusan litter is used as agricultural fertilizer. Natusan also plants trees for every pack purchased – because we want to make it easy to do good for the planet, one paw at a time.

From our start in 1946, Paul F. Iams sought out new ways to create premium, quality pet foods. He spent time with breeders and nutritionists and learned the importance of protein and the role of fat in pet food diets. He was the first to consider dogs and cats primarily as carnivores, a perception which was to revolutionize the whole of the pet food industry.
