The Western Veterinary Conference is in full swing through tomorrow yet I can’t help thinking about Jennifer and Pumpkin, our latest profiled goodnewsforpets.com 10th Anniversary iPad winners. That’s because Jennifer chose to donate to the ASPCA to help other pets, yet faced unique challenges of her own. With all the emerging issues and one of the leading points of discussion – why pet owners are visiting the veterinarian less often.
Also new at the conference was a new Product Showcase, and front and center was Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Inc.’s Weight Reduction Kit, available through veterinarians. An article in The Wall Street Journal “Personal Section” created some buzz. The article cited yet another study by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention with Banfield Pet Hospital. Interesting stuff and more to come!
