Bob Martin’s History

Britain is certainly a nation of pet lovers, and we’ve got the Victorians to thank for that…

We were the first nation in the world to set up an animal welfare charity in 1824 and today, there’s an estimated 51 million pets across the country! 

But it was another Victorian, Robert Martin, who founded Bob Martin in 1892, who wanted to look after our pets’ wellbeing. He identified a need for supplements to give pets the nutrition they need. 

Back then, a pet’s diet was based on our leftovers and mere scraps from the table, which sadly left many animals malnourished.

Bob Martin created a range of dog conditioning tablets to ensure every pooch owner could affordably give their dog all the vitamins, minerals and supplements it needed to be a happy, healthy pet.

Breeds might have changed a bit since the 1890’s, but we’ve always been steadfast in our guiding principle to provide vet quality products at affordable prices. 

Throughout the war years, Bob Martin supported the war effort through the production of various tablets and essential conditioning powders to support and protect our troops on the front line.

But we were still there to care for our pets too. We created treatments, such as Bob Martin’s Fit and Hysteria Powders, to calm pets in air raids. 

From our founding, to the war years and beyond, we’ve always strived to be a pioneering brand, being first to market for nearly 130 years…
