Ceva Animal Health, makers of Feliway® and Adaptil,™ has partnered with the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists(ACVB) to help. The Keep the L.O.V.E. Alive Behavior Express Tour 2012 bus will travel 12,500 miles and stop in six cities for a free pet fair.

“Thousands of pets die needlessly each year because of untreated behavior problems. ACVB and Ceva want pet owners to know there are medically sound options available from their local veterinarians to modify and treat these pets before it’s too late. This campaign will go a long way to addressing these alarming statistics and keep the love alive between pets and their families,” said Debra Horwitz, DVM, DACVB, spokesperson for the tour.

Each pet fair will feature board-certified veterinary behaviorists available to answer pet owner questions, educational booths staffed by local veterinarians, shelter booths with adoptable pets, and free giveaways from Ceva. Donations to area shelters participating in the fair will be made from the proceeds of event T-shirt sales and $1 “Paw for the Cause” donations.

“This tour can truly save the lives of pets.
