About Us

Who is Kelato?

Kelato Animal Health is an Australian owned company dedicated to producing a range of horse health and nutrition products that help horses feel well so they perform well. As passionate horse people ourselves, we are proud of our quality products which are recognised for their ability to maximise your horse’s condition, performance and general wellbeing.

Where it all began.

Kelato Animal Health was established in 1988 in Melbourne as ‘Chelated Laboratories Pty Ltd’. In November 2004, Kelato was purchased by Australian company Evolution Animal Health Pty Ltd and in January 2005 relocated to Sydney.

Originally the company’s core business centred on the manufacture of organic or ‘chelated’ trace minerals for use in animal nutrition. Since the relocation to Sydney we have built on the success of this technology and introduced an expanded range of products with proven benefits.

Kelato has developed an international reputation for quality and innovation. We are research driven and have formed alliances with other animal health companies to trial new combinations of compounds that produce real and measurable results.

Our Product Guarantee.

Kelato will only market products that provide a proven benefit to your horse, are unique, value for money and deliver genuine worthwhile results for you, our customer.

All of Kelato’s products sold in Australia are either registered with the APVMA (Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority) or conform to ISO (International Standards Organisation) quality standards for products not requiring registration. Our range only consists of products manufactured to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) which helps ensure the quality of products and that what is stated on the label as ingredients are actually in the container. In New Zealand, all products sold there are either registered or approved by the ACVM (Agricultural & Veterinary Medicines Group) as part of NZFSA (New Zealand Food Safety Authority).

Kelato is supported by equine nutritionists, specialist equine veterinarians and other technical advisors to ensure that information supporting our products reflects the latest in equine knowledge and practice. Kelato is a member of various industry bodies including the VMDA (Veterinary Manufacturers and Distributors Association) and the peak Australian chamber of commerce, Australian Business Limited. We are also committed to utilising compounds that are sustainable or environmentally compatible.

Quite simply, if a product does not prove to be the most effective of its type available, doesn’t represent good value for money, or can’t be produced to standards in a manner that meets the highest level of integrity we will not market it.

What sets Kelato apart.

The Kelato team own horses too! We are passionate about the health and wellbeing of our equine partners and stand by the benefits of our products. We strongly believe that if a horse feels well, it will perform well. Our mission is to ensure all horses feel well.

Our customers range from elite racing stables training thoroughbreds for Australia and overseas, to top level three-day eventers, to the cream of Australia’s dressage riders, to pony clubbers. We are proud of the fact that they believe in our products and keep coming back for more. Our philosophy is to be 100% committed to meeting the needs of our customers and then exceeding their expectations by providing exceptional products.

We also provide our customers with a free call phone service, which is manned during business hours, an online technical support service and a complimentary nutritional dietary analysis service.

Our team welcome your calls, inquiries and technical questions about nutritional supplements, veterinary health products and pharmaceuticals.
