A Message From Our CEO

Welcome to Solid Gold’s SuperFeed—a blog on all things pet! As the CEO and President of Solid Gold Pet, I am very excited that you are here and hope that you will take some time to enjoy the fun videos and stories that we have posted. I also hope that you and your pet benefit from our nutrition articles and educational tidbits.

Founded by Sissy Harrington McGill in 1974, Solid Gold Pet is America’s first holistic pet food company. I am consistently in awe of that fact. Natural pet food is now a multi-billion dollar industry and it all started in Southern California by one woman whose mission was to find better nutrition for her dogs so that they could live a longer, healthier life.

Though many years have passed and Sissy is no longer a part of running the company (she does still run her own pet food store called Heart of Gold in El Cajon, CA), our mission remains the same: to provide dogs and cats with the best possible food, treats and wellness supplements that allow them to live a long, healthy life.

Sissy was indeed a visionary and pioneer. Even in her first formulas, she included high-quality proteins as well as nutrient-dense superfoods like pumpkin, cranberries and blueberries. Of course, they weren’t called “superfoods” then. But what Sissy saw by feeding her customized pet food recipes to her own Great Danes was that they were living longer, healthier lives. It was because of this that she decided to commercialize her formulas and create the Solid Gold® brand.

Fast forward to today and Solid Gold Pet is a company of nearly 50 pet parents and pet champions who are all passionate about the health and well-being of cats and dogs.

Fast forward to today and Solid Gold Pet is a company of nearly 50 pet parents and pet champions who are all passionate about the health and well-being of cats and dogs. Creating the best, most healthy pet food and treats is what drives us. I, myself have two amazing chocolate Labradoodles – Toby and Moose, both of whom are Solid Gold dogs and both of whom are thriving on our food. That thrills me to my core, just as it thrills me to see other happy, healthy dogs and cats who eat Solid Gold products.

In future posts I will talk about our Solid Gold Pet employees, including our culture and passion for pets. I will also share some fun stories about our office dogs, as well as about Toby and Moose. Until then, please cruise around our SuperFeed and come back often as we promise to share a lot of fun and educational posts.

Thanks for reading.
