In 1971, a brilliant, determined chemist named Claus Pohl was on a mission. He had a makeshift lab down in the basement of his home in Longview, Texas. A friend and groomer had asked if he could develop a flea and tick pet shampoo superior to what was on the market. Claus took the request seriously, and the rest is history!


“Dream Big” is a familiar phrase. In 1971, Claus Pohl, did just that. He wanted to develop a shampoo superior to anything on the market. He wanted his shampoo to be gentle and clean thoroughly, as well as be safe for our pets and the planet. Working from the basement of his family home, Claus created the first naturally mild shampoo on the market and named it Bio-Groom. Now four decades later, Bio-Groom has become a leading brand in the pet industry with not just one, but over 70 products on the market.
