The signature product in the Sashas™ range, Sashas Blend™, was launched in 2000 by Ballarat company Interpath, owned by Dan & Corina Bright when their own dog Sasha began to show signs of lameness after exercise when she was only 11 years old.
Dan & Corina were already in the human health industry and had sufficient knowledge to question why veterinarians did not have a scientifically proven natural joint health treatment that could be taken long term without side effects. This chain of events was the catalyst for developing Sashas Blend™, named of course after their dog Sasha, the first dog to trial the product.
As well as using their own expertise, they contracted scientific facilities to research joint function and looked for natural actives and combinations which would provide outstanding results in terms of promoting joint function and mobility in dogs and cats.
After significant research and subsequent field trials, Sashas Blend™ became the first Australian developed natural arthritis treatment to achieve Veterinary registration with the APVMA in 2001.
Sashas Blend™ soon became, and still is, the number one selling treatment in Australasia. Following the success of Sashas Blend™ further Sashas™ products such as Sashas Flexibites™ have been released.
Interpath continues to focus on research and development. Recently, the results of their Equine joint health/pain relief product, a result of 3 years of ground breaking trial work including the discovery of a new active ingredient.
