Australian privately-owned company Poseidon Animal Health has enjoyed 85% growth across its domestic and export markets in the last year, and now its sights are set on the equine health sector in the USA.


Founded by husband and wife team Peter Lord and Linda Goldspink-Lord in 2017, Poseidon Animal Health specialises in manufacturing animal digestive health supplements and has grown to include equine and canine product ranges, and become the biggest player in the equine gut health supplement market across Australia and New Zealand.


The business expanded into New Zealand in 2019, and is currently exporting to the UAE, Europe and Asia. As of this week, Poseidon Animal Health has launched its equine products in the US market, with stateside manufacturing, distribution, sales, customer service and veterinary expert support. 


Global CEO of the business, Peter Lord, said the US has been part of their long-term growth plan, with a huge potential market: 


“The US equine industry contributes $122Billion to the US economy, and the market is 10x the size of Australia and New Zealand combined, totalling over 7 million horses.”


Customer demand has also driven the US launch plans, said Lord:  


“We see the opportunity to mirror our success in the USA where we know consumer demand is high, due to the volume of enquiries and product requests from US customers we already receive.”


With unique IP throughout the Poseidon Animal Health digestion and inflammation range of products, their evidence-based equine range is recommended by leading veterinarians, retailers, horse breeders and equine professionals, and is currently stocked in more than 400 retailers across Australia and New Zealand.


Poseidon’s Head US veterinarian, Dr Erin Roddy, said: 


“Research has identified that poor gut health can play a major role in contributing to many health ailments in horses and dogs, so we believe true health comes from supporting strong digestive and gut health. Wellness from within starts with effective digestive supplements, backed by science.” 


The company has already helped thousands of horses and dogs throughout its existing markets, and plans to use the same education-based marketing approach in the US market.


“Our success to date has been built on providing education to horse and dog owners, who ultimately want to learn more about how they can support their animals to live healthier lives. 

We’ll use the same approach in the US, hosting educational webinars with equine experts and having a presence at established equine events, so that we can help US horse owners better understand the gut and digestive health of their animals,” added Lord.


Poseidon Animal Health is dedicated to building communities where animal owners can seek expert advice and feel empowered about making decisions on behalf of their horses and dogs, and continues to innovate its product range as new research uncovers the impact of digestive and gut health.


“Poseidon Animal Health products are used by equestrians at all levels, from Olympians, international show jumpers and Grand Prix dressage riders, to breeders, pony club riders and happy hackers. We’re excited to help horses across various disciplines throughout the USA,” said Lord.

Farmers cautiously welcome carbon credit move; remind integrity is key

Tuesday 21 May, 2024 Farmers for Climate Action has cautiously welcomed news that stakeholders will be able to submit new carbon absorption and reduction methods, and reiterated that integrity is key to any carbon methodology. Carbon credits created in the agriculture and land sector generally involve absorbing carbon, typically in plantings of native species but also through soils, or by reducing carbon output of other farm practices, for example by burning methane from piggeries. The carbon credit can then be sold to the government at an auction or to private companies. Carbon credits must be real and additional - the…
