We're changing the world of pet food for good, and using cutting-edge science and technology to do it.
Hereâs a little bit about who we are and how we achieve tailor-made nutrition for dogs on a practical level. We'll show you why a tails.com diet is the perfect choice, from early puppyhood through to the senior years, and how we cater to changing nutritional needs over time according to each dog's profile.
