Our Amazon sales are booming, an indicator of the huge potential we have in the online space.

To see what makes the Gordon MacIntyre name so powerful, read on!


The reason Gordon MacIntyre has reached such success is because of Dr. John Gordon, DVM, DACVD.

Our Co-Founder and Chief Formulator, Dr. John Gordon DVM, DACVD has dedicated his professional career to the dermatological health of family pets and zoo animals of all breeds and species. His knowledge of skin conditions, allergies and other dermatologic afflictions has led him to develop the Gordon MacIntyre premium products.

Dr. John Gordon DVM, DACVD personally formulates all current and future products for Gordon MacIntyre and uses his decades of industry knowledge to help position these products for maximum impact.

Dr. John Gordon DVM, DACVD is also a partner with MedVet Medical & Cancer Centers for Pets, a veterinarian clinic with locations throughout Ohio, Louisiana, Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky. They employ board-certified veterinary specialists in everything from anesthesia, dentistry, and dermatology to neurology, radiology, and surgery.

A highly sought-after speaker and lecturer, Dr. John Gordon DVM, DACVD has presented to the World Congress of Veterinary Dermatology, the Western States National Veterinary Conference, the Midwest Veterinary Conference, and has been a guest of “Dog Talk” and “Cat Chat” on Martha Stewart Radio.

Dr. Gordon’s full bio can be found here.


Dr. Gordon, DVM, DACVD, created the formula, and Doug McIntrye created the brand, resulting in Gordon MacIntyre creating its first line of products in 2007: a 3-in-1 shampoo, conditioner, and lathering cleanser.

Now, Gordon MacIntyre moves upwards and onwards by capitalizing on unmet market demands.

Not only does Dr. Gordon, DVM, DACVD formulate all of our products, but he provides invaluable insight into the industry he has dedicated his life to. He knows better than anyone where the market is heading and what the current attitudes of consumers are.

Currently in the prototype phase, our shedding supplement will be the new face of Gordon MacIntyre — a premium pet products company that truly understands how important pets are to the family.

Along with this shedding supplement, we are launching an OTC (over-the-counter) hot spot spray, a product currently not in existence anywhere else. We’ve already begun testing the hot spot spray and have seen amazing results: 90%-100% cure rate without the use of any oral or topical prescription medication.

Gordon MacIntyre is creating its own space in the pet supplement and OTC hot spot spray world. Combined with our premium pet cleanser, we will dominate the pet market from every angle!


Gordon MacIntyre has three primary products, headlined by our dog shedding supplements.

Premium Supplements
The first supplement in development is the pet shedding supplement.

The shedding supplement decreases the amount of shedding significantly and safely for your dog over time.

When we combine multiple proprietary ingredients into one supplement and given to your pet daily, they will have the opportunity to consistently develop a beautiful, healthy hair coat throughout the year. This will be evident not only in the appearance of the pet’s fur, but also in how it feels.

OTC Hot Spot Spray
A medicated over-the-counter proprietary spray to dry and cure hot spots for your dog without the need for oral or other topical prescriptions from your vet. Current shampoos on the market are hard to wash out, often leaving residue on your dog’s skin that can lead to hot spots or other medical conditions. Allergies, humidity, infections, and fur type are also common causes for hot spots. Current treatments on the market are often moist and result in the animal wanting to touch the area. We resolve the pain points of current products with our proprietary spray. Our non-prescription, topical spray provides the benefits of:

  • Immediate relief
  • Easy application
  • Non-painful
  • Quick-drying
  • Non-toxic if ingested with licking
  • Antimicrobial
  • An ingredient to discourage licking.

All of our products have been formulated to compliment one another so you are never feeling that you have to choose between one product over another. All of our products work harmoniously together.


Gordon MacIntyre has been around for nearly a decade. We are not a startup, we are a revitalized brand ready to take our company to the next level. We already have thousands of customers from all over the world. Our Amazon sales have been rapidly growing as of late — up 350% in 2016.  

In addition to Amazon, we have a number of distributors and brick-and-mortar retailers worldwide:

  • Kandy Corporation is our exclusive distributor in Korea, and our largest customer.
  • Whole Foods sells Gordon MacIntyre products at 6 locations in Louisiana. Our 3-in-1 pet lathering cleanser helped launch their pet section to great results.
  • MedVet Medical & Cancer Centers for Pets sells Gordon MacIntyre products at their soon-to-be 100,000 sq ft. Columbus, OH headquarters. They have also committed to selling our  supplement and hot spot spray at all locations across the US.
  • We also have just received and order from the online and brick and mortar company, Bark Department, in Hong Kong.

We have also received strong interest from LG Corporation to be our exclusive distributor in Korea and 10 other Asian countries. Based on our own accord, we have paused this conversation.

Moving forward, however, we are pivoting to an e-commerce sales model. The incredible success we’ve seen on Amazon is proof that this is where our market is headed. Selling direct and online gives us tremendous power over our brand and complete control of pricing and distribution. Our marketing partners are experts in the ecommerce realm and we are confident in the team that we have put together.
