The Designing Health Story

All is well.

Designing Health The Missing LinkDr. Robert M. Collett, founder of Designing Health, grew up in Colorado where his love of animals started at a very young age. His passion for animals and their health led him to study veterinary medicine at Colorado State University. After graduation, Dr. Collett moved to Southern California and over the next 40 plus years he developed one of the most successful practices in the Western States.

In the early 1990s, Dr. Collett began research into the degenerative disease processes observed in his patients. These loving companions had the same medical conditions and sufferings that humans struggle within their lifetime. His research uncovered a number of nutritional deficiencies caused by the highly processed modern pet food diet. He discovered modern pet foods were completely void of Omega 3 fatty acid. The Omega 6 fatty acid in pet foods was of such poor quality from processing that it did more harm than good. The quality of these important fatty acids can either promote health or cause it to deteriorate.

Further studies convinced Dr. Collett that there was a nutritional gap from what animals fed on in the wild, nutritionally dense, whole, raw and fresh foods, and the modern commercially processed pet foods. Dr. Collett developed and patented cold processing methods and supplement formulas for pets targeting this nutritional gap. He gave these formulations to his patients with health issues and recorded the remarkable results over the course of several months. Dr. Collett donated his time and expertise working with the city of Los Angeles animal shelters and zoos around the country to improve animal health for which he earned a number of commendations.

Word of these remarkable supplements spread like wildfire and The Missing Link Superfood Supplements were launched! Business grew fast at the Collett Veterinary Clinic because Dr. Collett was treating the root cause of major health concerns along with treating the symptoms. Designing Health incorporated in 1994 to manufacture and market The Missing Link line of pet supplements worldwide. The Missing Link Superfood Supplements are available for Birds, Dogs, Cats, Horses and Small Animals. The Missing Link with glucosamine was added in 2001 to address joint health issues in senior animals. In 2009, the company launched a new Puppy Health Formula to promote and support healthy growth and development.

All Designing Health products are formulated using only premium quality ingredients from whole foods and food concentrates. The patented, proprietary packaging, manufacturing and handling methods ensure the freshest, most stable delivery of Omega 3 fatty acids with all vital nutrients intact.
