ENTREPRENEUR: Dr. Geoffrey Broderick and his daughter, Kristina Broderick of Huntington, NY and Casey the dog.
PITCH: Cornucopia Express, probiotic food for dogs and cats.
ASKING FOR: $300k for a 15% stake.
BEST PART OF THE PITCH: Dr. Broderick is a longtime veterinarian who developed a product that he says extends the lives of pets by 50% by keeping them healthy and disease-free. The good news is that during a taste test, Casey the dog inhales the stuff. The sharks ask if it's good enough for humans to eat. Dr. Broderick says he makes a smoothie filled with the stuff every morning. Remarkably, Kevin O. helps himself to a spoonful of the dog food. No, really! The doc has done 40 years of research on the longest living people and animals in Asia and Siberia and shows them a photo of a 24-year-old cat named Rocky.
DO THE SHARKS BITE? Robert is skeptical, thinking Dr. Broderick may be ignorant to the fact that his product really "doesn't" have magical powers to heal or worse, he may be a con man preying on distressed pet lovers. Surprisingly, Kevin O. is the one who defends Dr. Broderick as possibly being the real deal. Robert wonders why he's not selling his product to a real hospital to save humankind. Robert, Kevin H. and Barbara don't believe he has the needed proof to back up the claims and Daymond can't let his decision be based on sentimental hope. They are all out. Kevin O. believes everything Dr. Broderick says, but thinks it will be tough to market the product without proof that it works. He's out. Dr. Broderick leaves a helping of the food for them to use so that they may someday see for themselves that it truly does work.
