Growing ‘Trend’ is Actually the Way Pets Were Raised for Centuries

On Saturday, March 15, Dr. Ian Billinghurst, a veterinary surgeon and author from Australia will speak to pet owners from the New England area at the Middlesex Community College in Bedford, Mass. The seminar entitled ‘Feeding Your Dog or Cat a Raw Diet’ will discuss the concept of feeding a raw diet to companion animals.

As pet owners increasingly take an active role in the care of their beloved four-legged companions, many are embracing the concept of feeding their pets the way nature intended, rather than relying on the typical supermarket kibble to meet their dietary needs.

Especially for Pets hosted its annual SPAY Awareness Day on Saturday, February 22, 2003. SPAY DAY was created by the Doris Day Foundation as a day of public education and awareness about the importance of spaying and neutering pets.

SPAY DAY is America's preeminent spay/neuter action campaign, that joins humane organizations, veterinary clinics, businesses and animal advocates to promote spaying and neutering as a primary means of ending the killing of homeless companion and feral animals. Spay Day USA participants have altered an estimated 835,000 animals since the campaign's inception in 1995. The Doris Day Animal Foundation (DDAF) is a nonprofit, 501(c) (3) organization founded in 1998 by legendary performer Doris Day
