Happy New Year! As 2018 is now upon us, it’s time for both pets and humans alike to revisit health goals for the coming year. As responsible and caring pet parents, we want our pets to live happy, healthy, long lives and the decisions we make for them impact their health outcomes.
Good Nutrition is the Foundation for Good Health
Just like humans, our pets are what they eat. Selecting the right food and nutrition products for your furry friends can be overwhelming and challenging.
But food is just one part of a pet’s overall health.
Pet Parents Need Education For:
- Pet Obesity – One of the top health issues leading to other disease states – diabetes, joint issues, and shorter lifespan
- Senior Pet Population

- Dental Disease
- Skin Irritations
- Digestive Issues
- Cancer, Heart & Respiratory, Kidney, Diabetes
- Preventive Diseases – heartworm, flea & tick, Lyme

Pet Health and Wellness is Front and Center
3/4 of U.S. households with pets make at least one visit to a vet per year*
“Nearly 90 percent of dog owners and 75 percent of cat owners know that routine check-ups and preventive care are very important.”
Prescription and non-prescription pet medications comprise a significant portion of pet healthcare costs
Retail sales or prescription and non-prescription medications for dogs and cats – estimated for $7.6 billion
U.S. retail sales of companion animal pet medications are expected to grow to $10.2 billion by 2018
U.S. manufacturer sales of companion animal pet medications have been estimated at $3.7 billion to $4 billion annually
