About Us

Wholesale distributors of animal health products, horse care, pet supplies, premium pet foods, caged & wild bird foods, and lawn & garden supplies

We Pledge to Always Serve our Dealers

At Nelson Wholesale Service, Inc. we are dedicated to serving the Independent Feed Stores and Pet Centers with products that allow them to thrive in our ever-changing environment.

We constantly strive to offer products that are not found in mass merchant and chain stores. Nelson Wholesale offers niche market products that allow our customers to make a profit and grow their businesses.

We believe that companion animal products for dogs, cats, birds, and horses must be featured in Dealer stores.

With knowledgeable service and unique products, we are committed to our customers, our products, our suppliers, and our employees.

Nelson Wholesale Service exists only to serve our customers.

There is a great future for all of us.

Sincerely,John D. HarkeyChairman & CEO
