Activ4Pets first ever podcast!
Hanging out in the recording studio with Activ4Pets Chief Veterinary Officer, Dr. Clayton Jones, discussing pet health topics and trending pet news.
We had so much fun doing our National Dog Day Photo Contest, that we just had to do another! Not that anyone needs an excuse to take pictures for their pet… but dress them up in silly/scary/fun costumes and then take pictures? BRILLIANT!
According to The 2015 State of Pet Health Report from Banfield Pet Hospital, 81% of pet owners say they believe that they (not the vet) are responsible for preventive care. It says:
“For many pet owners, interactions with their veterinarian are not meeting their expectations and are seen as transactional… They’re tied to specific services, like vaccines or parasite control.”
Are we happy with this assessment? And if not, how can we improve the veterinarian-client relationship and provide more hands-on assistance?
Being a cat owner has benefits. Serious benefits. Science-backed benefits:
- Cats can reduce the likeliness of a heart attack by nearly one third, according to researchers at The University of Minnesota’s Stroke Institute.
- Children raised with cats develop strong immune systems and resistance to allergic diseases, such as asthma and allergic rhinitis.
- Petting a cat releases oxytocin. This makes you feel happy. 🙂
Knowing this, you want to keep your feline purring for years to come.
