Animora was founded in 2018 by a passionate animal couple; Andrée-Ann Adam and Jean-Philippe Côté. Their objective? Improve the health and welfare of pets by offering innovative products in animal health.
It all started during Andrée-Ann’s bachelor’s degree in microbiology, more specifically during her internships in a dental research laboratory. She discovers the benefits of natural molecules on oral health. Wanting to use her knowledge for animal health, she began to develop the first product: a cranberry dental gel. Jean-Philippe contributed greatly to development by bringing his biochemical and pharmaceutical knowledge. Togeter, they spent almost a year and several formulas before getting to the final product.
Thanks to the generous support of hundreds of people during our fundraising campaign, the first product came to life and began to be distributed at the end of June 2018. After only a year, the dental gel became a must for oral hygiene of many cats and dogs. They were just crazy about the product! Furthermore, several award winnings in entrepreneurial contests throughout Quebec also attested to its quality. Our success is also due to our supportive clients, ambassadors, and friends who have been behind us from the beginning. Many thanks to all of you!
THE TEAM OF ANIMORA
Andrée-Ann started her studies with a technical program in animal health and subsequently completed a bachelor`s degree in microbiology. During her studies, she became interested in oral microbiology during a research laboratory at the Faculty of Dentistry. With the desire to improve the oral condition of animals, she specialized herself with a master’s degree in oral health for cats and dogs.
After growing up on a dairy farm, Jean-Philippe completed a bachelor`s degree in biochemistry, followed by a PhD in pharmacy. He always had the curiosity to deepen his knowledge in order to understand different biochemical processes. and this brought him to become involved with the company. He also has an interest in the mode of action of molecules with in mind improving health as the objective.
Trixie is a 7-year-old calico cat. Having lost her mother very young, she was found lost in the countryside. Andrée-Ann fell in love with this little tricolor kitten with a black nose who was looking for a safe haven. Now Trixie is part of Andrée-Ann’s family and has even become the official representative of Animora products as she has developed an unconditional love for our cranberry dental gel.
