SynergyLabs was founded in 1998 with the mission to create high-quality, advanced veterinary care and grooming products that promote the health, happiness and longevity of pets.

Hand-crafted in the USA by pet lovers, our owned brands and private label products include medicated shampoos and conditioners, grooming supplies, supplements, oral health care, fragrances, training aids, shed control products, pharmaceuticals, stain removers, cleaning formulas, and more. We offer specially crafted formulas that are organic, soap-free, and hypoallergenic. All products are developed and manufactured in our South Florida facility using sophisticated equipment and advanced technology.

We are committed to creating vet-inspired products that are safe, efficacious, and environmentally conscious, and our products are never tested on animals. We aim to educate our customers on the importance of product safety and high manufacturing standards when it comes to caring for our best friends, our pets.


In 1995, chemist and SynergyLabs CEO, Richard Ticktin created Flea Doctor, combining his innate entrepreneurship, a love for chemistry, and the desire to develop better products for his own beloved pets. By 1998, Flea Doctor’s massive portfolio expansion inspired the launch of a full-service animal health and veterinary grooming company, and Synergy Labs was born.

Under Ticktin’s leadership, Synergy Labs has grown exponentially to feature in-house product development, laboratory services, manufacturing, material sourcing, packaging and production divisions. Our integrity and experience ensure ultimate quality and value in every Synergy Labs product.

Synergy Labs is the recipient of the South Florida Manufacturers Association Manufacturer of the Year award, the Best Fort Lauderdale Company award, and packaging awards for X-Treme Catnip and Groomer’s Salon Select brands.

Synergy Labs is registered and regulated by the NASC, APPA, SFMA, FDA, ATF, and Hazmat.
