The Ticks Have Arrived!

May 2017 Blog - The Ticks Have Arrived

Ticks are gross and can be dangerous. They are tiny bugs who bury their head in your skin, drink your blood and literally grow in size after a blood meal – potentially passing on diseases as they feed! They are ugly, insidious and just plain creepy crawly… unfortunately, they are becoming more and more prevalent […]

What a trip! I don’t even know where to begin in describing to you the things I learned, saw and felt throughout this journey.

Westway’s Excellent Pet Nutrition Adventure – Part 1

Westway's Excellent Pet Nutrition Adventure

Later this week I have the pleasure of taking a special trip to the Hill’s Pet Nutrition Center in Topeka, Kansas. As part of my due diligence I have always wanted to actually go, see and tour their facilities, meet the professionals (veterinarians, scientists, nutritionists, internists) who have dedicated their own careers to the progression […]
