Lafeber Company was built by a father-son team of veterinarians with a shared love of animals and a special passion for birds. Dr. T.J. Lafeber developed the very first commercial bird food pellet in the back room of his veterinary clinic in the early 1970s. Today, our recipes are developed by his son, Dr. Ted Lafeber, III, along with top veterinarians and nutritionists.
Lafeber Company’s manufacturing facility has always been located on the Lafeber family farmland, and all of our products are mixed, formed and packaged under one roof. Staying true to our motto —“Caring and working for the health of animals” — we created Veterinary Resources to offer exotic animal veterinarians an every-growing library of vet-written articles, client education materials and videos. Wildlife Conservation is our online networking community dedicated to nourishing and protecting animals and their worlds near and far. Pet Birds is dedicated to the pet owner and offers a wide variety of information on their beloved pets.
