Kane Biotech has appointed Pan Pacific Pet for Western Canada and Pet Science for Eastern Canada as our bluestem distribution partners to service the Canadian pet specialty market. Since late Q1 50 pet specialty retailers from British Columbia to Quebec are now carrying bluestem with more pet specialty retail locations being added each month.

In follow on to the bluestem oral care water additive products, bluestem oral spray has now been added to the product family. More information on bluestem can be found at www.bluestempets.com.
