The Story of Orthomolecular Medicine
Welcome to your new source for the products of Dr. Wendell Belfield, DVM, including Mega C Plus!
Proven by years of research and confirmed by customer confidence and loyalty, Orthomolecular Specialties, the trusted products of Dr. Belfield, are once again available…right here at OMS Love My Pet!
When Dr. Belfield passed away, I was concerned that we’d lost access to the nutraceuticals that were not only his life’s work, but an integral element in the health and well-being of my own beloved little family of Bichon Frise. In our home, we rely daily on Dr. Belfield’s profound contribution to pet health. I knew we were not alone, so I reached out to Dr. Belfield’s family and acquired the rights to the formulas. I am so excited to be your new, exclusive source for Orthomolecular Specialties!
Dr. Wendell O. Belfield Sr., DVM
Dr. Wendell Belfield was a veterinary doctor and pioneer promoting wholesome foods for pets. He had a successful veterinary practice in San Jose, California, where he dedicated his professional life to improving orthomolecular therapies for small animals.
More than a vet, Dr. Belfield was a Compounding Pharmacist. His clinical knowledge served as the catalyst for enhanced nutritional products, successfully addressing ineffective conventional treatment protocols for many animal diseases. Through trial and error, he developed combinations of nutrients that are indicated for specific disease processes, and conducted research to establish the efficacy of his treatments.
Dr. Belfield is the author of several books on the benefits of vitamins and minerals for pet health, and numerous articles published in international veterinary journals and magazines. Dr. Belfield also contributed a chapter entitled “Orthomolecular Medicine: A Practitioner’s Perspective” in the veterinary textbook, Complementary and Alternative Veterinary Medicine: Principles and Practice, (Mosby, 1997).

The simple fact is…
I love my pet
Our pets rely on us completely and love us unconditionally. We do the best we can. We try to feed them quality food. We give them lots of love and attention. We play with them, give them room to run, and provide a comfortable home. But our busy lifestyles coupled with a lack of understanding about what our furry friends truly need at the molecular level can cause us to miss some simple things we can do to foster the happy, healthy lives we truly desire for them.
