Everything we make at Dr. McGrath’s is driven by our banner of “Sensible Simplicity.” We keep our processing to a minimum, adding extra ingredients and preservatives only when necessary. We also manufacture everything in the USA, so we can keep our quality standards high, the origin of our ingredients known, and our process well understood.
About the name… Today animal crazy little girls dream about and even plan to become veterinarians but one hundred years ago there were no women veterinarians. Elinor McGrath had a spirit and concern for animals that propelled her to become one of the very first. She made her way to the Chicago Veterinary College and in 1907 was the first woman admitted to the school. Besides being a compassionate animal doctor Elinor acknowledged the intimate role of animals in our lives. Dr. McGrath’s was established to tell Elinor’s story and stand as a tribute to her life’s work in caring for animals. We’ve established the Elinor McGrath Scholarship Program to continue her legacy.
