Dear Animal Friend:

The Animal Friend category of membership in the National Animal Supplement Council includes animal owners, consumers, breeders, groomers, trainers, owners of kennels and horse boarding facilities, and others who support the objectives of NASC.
If you use health supplements for your companion animal and believe in your right to have access to these products, we need your help. The availability of health supplements for companion animals, which closely resemble human dietary supplements with ingredients such as Glucosamine, MSM, herbs and antioxidants, is at risk. Regulatory uncertainty, including “stop sale” orders from numerous states, may restrict your future ability to buy these products for your pet.



NASC is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and enhancing the health of companion animals and horses throughout the United States. NASC actively promotes industry support from key stakeholders including regulators, legislators, media and consumers. There is strength in numbers and your involvement will make a difference!

NASC delivers the information you need to stay current with the animal health supplement industry. NASC’s Scientific Advisory Committee provides the up-to-date information on ingredient risk evaluation and research information. This website ( is a complete resource for products, exclusive members-only information, and current news on regulatory issues. Our monthly newsletter keeps you informed of news, announcements and accomplishments. (Click to see NASC’s accomplishments since the organization was founded.)

NASC is proud of the progress we’ve made and would like to do more. There is no cost to become an NASC Animal Friend – please join NASC today!
