BioStar US Blog | Whole Food SUpplements for Horses & Dogs

Welcome to the BioStar Blog!


Our mission is to share information, help empower dog and horse owners with knowledge about nutrition and health of their animals, and bring them the best whole food supplements.

Here you’ll find many of our own personal experiences and opinions, and we’ve taken care to ensure that the more technical information we present is backed by published nutritional studies and scientific research. Please remember, though, that the blog articles themselves are not intended to cure, diagnose, or treat any disease.

Questions about our equine and canine whole food supplements? Contact us and we’ll be glad to assist.
