We are proud to introduce Dr. Bart Dunsford! 

Dr. Dunsford joined our HappyTails family earlier this year as our canine wellness consultant. He has skillfully guided our product research & development in myriad ways, and we are deeply grateful to him for his guidance. He currently holds a leadership role with Lallemand Animal Nutrition and has earned a reputation within the canine wellness industry as the go-to ingredient specialist.

Dunsford brings over 20 years of experience in the companion animal nutrition industry in more than 40 countries. His knowledge of specialty ingredients in the “biotics” sector is remarkable.  According to Dr. Dunsford, "considerable evidence shows that various probiotic strains impart differing results in animals, including broad, positive impacts on companion animal well-being. Knowledge of the relationship between immunity and probiotics is continuing to grow; single or multi-strains of probiotics can deliver functional benefits that yield positive impacts, and these benefits can vary depending on the life stage. Similarly, various probiotic strains have positive effects in gastrointestinal well-being for several pathways." Currently Dunsford is focusing on the gut-brain axis and the positive effects of specific probiotics on stress and anxiety.

Dr. Dunsford earned his Bachelor of Science in Animal Science at Kansas State University, Master of Science in Nutrition, and his Doctorate in Veterinary Anatomy at Texas A&M University. His graduate work focused on the effect of various nutrients in the development of the gastrointestinal tract. Dunsford was an assistant professor in the animal science department at Virginia Tech and has spent more than 25 years in industry positions, with his main focus on probiotics and prebiotics since 2005. 

Welcome to the HappyTails Canine Wellness™ family Dr. Dunsford, we are pawsitively thrilled to have you on this glorious journey with us!
