Use this formula example to determine how much a 1,000 kg batch of 2 gr soft chews yields:
1,000kg times 1,000 divided by (gram size of each chew or tablet times and the count you want in each bottle) Example: chew size 2 gram, in a 120 count size bottle will yield approximately 4,166 units.
Depending on the complexity of the formula, and whether or not you have unique ingredients that we do not stock, It usually takes 4-6 weeks to source any ingredients that we do not stock, then it can take between 4-8 weeks to finalize a formula , then 4-6 weeks to test. If the test runs well on the first batch, then soft chews will take a minimum of 90 days to monitor moisture content to be sure chews do not turn hard.
With powders, tablets, or liquids we can move forward and expect 4-6 weeks from the time the labels and the deposit are received.

Powders, tablet, liquids at least: 12-16 weeks (Minimum)
