Cardinal Pet Care
Your Partner In A Professional And Responsible Pet Industry
Cardinal was founded in Los Angeles in 1948, and today occupies a sprawling, modern and environmentally responsible manufacturing and research campus that covers more than 73,000 square feet in Azusa, California. A tireless innovator in improving the quality of pet care products, Cardinal has spearheaded numerous innovations since its founding, including one of the first successful whitening shampoos, the Crazy Pet line of fun fragrance shampoos and sprays, and Pet Botanics, one of the first product lines in the pet industry to emphasize natural ingredients.
More recently, Cardinal introduced its Gold Medal Pets line of pet shampoos, featuring Cardoplex, a unique patent-pending formulation that utilizes fruit acids and fast-acting proteins that result in shorter rinse off and drying time for pets. By reducing the time it takes to rinse and dry a pet, Cardoplex makes bath time less stressful. This not only enhances the lives of dogs, it makes their human companions more likely to bathe them regularly, which contributes to good health.
When Tony De Vos, the current owner of Cardinal joined the company, it had 8-10 employees. In 1981, De Vos assumed the presidency of Cardinal Laboratories after his friend, mentor and father-in-law Cardinal president, Larry Sica, passed away. De Vos started his tenure with advice he had received from his father-in-law “We never make a mistake until it goes out the door." That emphasis on quality control and having systems in place to catch mistakes before they're shipped out is still the foundation of Cardinal's relationship with its customers.
