A plan for physically and mentally healthy animals starts with nutrition.
A plan for physically and mentally healthy animals starts with nutrition. Metazoa researches, develops and produces balanced nutrition and supplementation for different animal species. The products put the evolutionary development of an animal species next to the way it lives with us today. By doing so, you achieve the ideal nutritional balance. This strengthens the self-healing capacity of an animal and thus helps the owners take responsibility for the well-being of their animal.
Metazoa originated from the hobby and personal interest of Marc Jansen. Already during his education at the agricultural college in Dronten, he experimented with nutrition for various exotic animals. Over the past thirty years, he has built the company into a premium supplier of scientifically based animal nutrition. With a wide range of feeds that are developed and produced from a unique vision. In 2011 a specific question about the horse of a customer led to the development of the current range of high quality horse supplements. Marc has an unbridled passion for animal health and nutrition science. With this, he is committed to perfecting the composition of animal nutrition. In this way he wants to help owners to make and keep their animals healthy.

Vision on animal feed and supplementation
Animals kept by humans are completely dependent on their owner. For a suitable housing, for loving care, for the space for natural behavior and certainly for proper nutrition. Most animal owners feel very responsible for the welfare of their animal. For knowledge and expertise, the owner relies on professionals such as veterinarians, veterinary surgeons, farriers, etc. And, of course, on brands that provide products for animals, such as the nutrition brands. From a nutritional perspective, Metazoa wants to support owners in their responsible task. Indeed, nutrition has a major impact on the well-being of the animal. With as main pillars: the evolutionary development of an animal and the way it is kept today. Some species have changed considerably genetically over time and, moreover, an animal that does not live in the wild functions at a different rhythm, with consequences for its physiology and nutrition plan.
