Celebrity Veterinarian and Top Pet CompaniesTeam Up to Present 25 City Book Tour

Cat lovers in 25 major U.S. cities are about to experience a “purrfect” treat when “America’s Veterinarian” Dr. Marty Becker hits the road this May and June for a book tour promoting his latest book, “Your Cat: The Owner’s Manual.” The tour includes media appearances across the nation, plus a daily book signing at a PetcoTM location in each city.

Cats are the most popular pets in America. According to the American Pet Products Association, there are approximately 86.4 million pet cats in the United States (more than twice the amount than dogs in the home) and on average, each cat-loving household has two felines.

“Last year, my team did a similar book tour to promote ‘Your Dog: The Owner’s Manual,’ in 29 major U.S. cities and the reception was fantastic,” Dr. Becker says. “Pets are special and pet lovers are ravenous for information about their pets and any health or behavioral problems they’re having. People in the media are huge pet lovers and they see the value in these kinds of segments. The challenge we have is that there are so many secrets, surprises and solutions about cat ownership that we will have a hard time picking just a few to talk about.”

Dr. Becker has been a popular contributor to “Good Morning America” for 16 years, is the resident veterinarian on “The Dr. Oz Show,” and is the pet expert for AARP. Most recently, Dr. Becker is a veterinary contributor and spokesperson for vetstreet.com, the top website for veterinarian-reviewed pet-care information. The first chapter of his new book appears on vetstreet.com. He is a contributor to Parade magazine and is the author of “Your Dog: The Owner’s Manual” (Grand Central Life & Style; May 2011), which is now out in paperback. Dr. Becker has co-written a number of books with pet journalist Gina Spadafori.
