The roots of HiPet USA go back nearly three decades to 1982 when our scientists started doing research to identify natural, organic and probiotic ingredients that would improve the health of animals. They were especially interested in a beneficial metabolite called Mushroom Beta-glucan that enhances the immune system.
They developed and patented a method of growing medicinal mushrooms in a controlled environment using special flasks and an organic growing medium. This method ensures consistent quality, high yield and absolute protection from field contaminants like pesticides.
While other brands simply grind mushrooms from
unknown sources into powder. HiPet USA goes the
whole nine yard, culturing their own medicinal
mushrooms with organic herbal mediums in a controlled
environment, followed by patented purification and
extraction biotechnology process to yield the
pharmaceutical grade beta glucan.
Better Health For Farm Animals
The mushrooms then undergo a delicate extraction and purification process to yield the pharmaceutical grade beta glucan that enhances and strengthens the immune system.
After years of research, experimentation, and testing, the company began manufacturing their mushroom beta glucan and selling it as a feed additive for swine, cattle, poultry and fish.
As organic farming grew in popularity, so did mushroom beta glucan as an important animal health supplement. The company expanded and began selling its natural feed additives all over the world, specifically the US, Mexico, Ecuador, Brazil, Turkey, Russia, Japan, Taiwan and China.
Better Health For Domestic Pets
In 2000, the company expanded into the pet market by launching HiPet 3-in-1 Canine/Feline Supplement formula as a natural health supplement for dogs and cats.
HiPet’s 100% natural mushroom beta glucan supplement contains no additives, hormones, preservatives, added flavors or colors. It’s made in a certified manufacturing facility in San Diego County, California, and its purity is authenticated by an objective, third party lab.
Utilizing data from more than 25 years of research efforts, the 5 medicinal mushroom combination in HiPet USA’s premium supplements offer exceptional efficacy to renew and support your pet’s immune wellness. In addition, the synergistic blend also provides comprehensive protections against free radicals.

He then turned his attention to livestock and poultry, resulting in a supplement that produced healthier animals, greater yields and less vulnerability to disease.
Dr. Chen has published four books on mushroom beta glucan, written 14 academic papers and co-authored 160 reports on animal health. He has won six distinguished research awards. He has his PhD in Microbiology and Tropical Medicine. Dr. Chen is a board member of the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).
Co-Founder Dr. J.F. Wu
Dr. Wu is a world-famous microbiologist and owner of the largest natural animal feed additive company in the US. His California-based company, Cenzone, makes supplements free of hormones and antibiotics.
Dr. Wu has a doctorate degree from the University of North Texas and has done post-doctoral research at Cornell University. He holds numerous patents on beneficial bacterium and enzymes.
His years of research combined with the work of Dr. Chen resulted in the development of mushroom beta glucan and HiPet Supplements.
