Animora was founded in 2018 by a couple passionate about animals; Andrée-Ann Adam and Jean-Philippe Côté. Their goal? Improve 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 where she discovered the benefits of natural molecules on oral health. Wanting to use her knowledge for animal’s health, she began to develop the first product: a Cranberry Dental Gel. Jean-Philippe contributed greatly to its development by bringing his biochemical and pharmaceutical knowledge. Together, 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, winning several awards 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!

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.
