Pet Product Innovations Founder Joins Teef!’s Board
Teef! recently welcomed David Levy, founder and CEO of Pet Product Innovations LLC, as an advisor and director on its board. Levy will also be investing in the company.
Pet Product Innovations is a manufacturer and U.S. distributor of pet products based in Des Plaines, Ill.
“I was drawn to Teef! because dental care is often neglected but extremely important in maintaining an animal’s overall health,” Levy said. “Unlike current approaches that only mask the symptoms of dental disease or endanger the health of their users, Teef! actually targets the root cause where they do the most damage—below the gum line. Their product is easy to use and effective, which makes it a game-changer for pet families everywhere.”
Teef!’s patented formula, Protektin42, has been clinically proven to stop bacteria from causing dental disease in both humans (tested for 8 years) and dogs (tested for 4 years), according to company officials. The human-grade water additive is designed to clean a dog’s mouth every time they drink, officials added.
“It is clear that David is passionate about bringing to market innovative pet products that better the lives of pets and their owners,” said Emily Stein, Ph.D., founder of Teef!, which is owned by Primal Health in Minneapolis. “We are extremely appreciative that he believes in our company, and we are thrilled to have his support that will help take our brand to the next level of success.”
Levy is also the founder of distribution firm Zeus & Co. Levy is credited with bringing more than 40 new lines to market, according to company officials.
Both companies will be exhibiting at SuperZoo, scheduled for Aug. 20-22 in Las Vegas. Pet Product Innovations will be at booth 1274 and Teef! at booth 1277.
