About Dr. Gary Richter

As an expert veterinarian, Dr. Gary Richter has always had a heartfelt drive to help keep animals healthy, and provide the best chances for their happiness. He’s received over 30 awards, certifications, and honors for his work.

In fact, The American Veterinary Medical Foundation awarded Dr. Richter with the title of “America’s Favorite Veterinarian.” Dr. Gary Richter has paved the way for veterinary science and better pet nutrition for over 20 years, and he’s made his discoveries accessible to every pet owner through his bestselling book, The Ultimate Pet Health Guide.

More than his accomplishments, Dr. Richter is generous of heart. He knows that there are dogs and cats worldwide that sit in county animal shelters just waiting to meet their people. Furthermore, he knows that sometimes providing an animal with a loving home can do as much for the provider of that home as it does for the pet.

That’s why he created Ultimate Pet Nutrition. It’s also why UPN is a proud sponsor of Pets for Vets — a nonprofit organization that places shelter animals with military veterans which can be life-changing for everyone involved.
