Pet specialty retailer kicks off October celebrations with “Bootique” costumes and accessories, plus a lineup of Halloween-themed events taking place in-store and online

 

Now more than ever, pets are an essential part of holiday festivities and traditions, and pet costumes in particular continue to gain popularity.

According to the National Retail Federation’s 2018 Halloween Spending Survey, nearly 20 percent of pet parents plan to dress their pets in costumes this Halloween, up from 16 percent last year. The survey also reports that of the 31.3 million Americans participating in this trend, millennials are most likely to dress their pets in a costume.

Petco has all festive pet parents and their pets covered this Halloween season with its on-trend “Bootique” collection of costumes, toys and accessories, available now at Petco stores nationwide and online at petco.com/halloween.

For the pup looking to be original, Petco’s Dirty PuptiniCheesy Pizza Delivery and French Toast are new must-have costumes this year.

For the sassy feline who wants to be a little extra for all the season’s festivities, the Cheesy Pizza and Sushi Roll costumes are perfect.

Also in celebration of the Halloween season, Petco will host a series of online and in-store events throughout October:

  • Make A Scene: Now through Oct. 26, pets and pet parents can participate in Petco’s annual Make A Scene Photo Contest on Instagram. For a chance to win a $10,000 grand prize, pet parents are encouraged to post photos of their costumed pet in a scene that matches their pet’s costumes. Entrants must simply follow @petco on Instagram and tag their photos with the hashtag #PetcoHalloweenContest.
  • Halloween Pet Costume Party: On Sunday, Oct. 14, at 11 a.m. local time, pets can slither their way to Petco’s in-store Halloween pet costume contest for a chance to win a spook-tacular prize. At noon, pet parents can attend Petco’s Trick-for-Treats seminar and learn useful training tips from experts. For pet parents looking to win best-dressed with their pet, the pet and pet parent costume contest starts at 12:30 p.m. Dogs, cats, reptiles and companion animals are all welcome to participate.

Petco reminds all pet parents that the same things that make Halloween fun for humans can make the holiday scary for pets. Candy and festive décor can be dangerous for pets who can’t resist gobbling everything in their path, so be sure to keep these things out of reach for pets. For pet parents planning to treat instead of trick, the Candy Apple and Tricks-for-Treats dog toys and the Bag of Treats cat toys provide pets hours of safe, festive fun.

Follow along on social media and post pictures of your pets celebrating Halloween with the hashtag #PetcoHalloween.

AniCura, one of Europe’sleading providers of high-quality veterinary care for companion animals, presents its quality and sustainability report for 2018 and commits to reduce the company’s antibiotic use by half until 2030.

Since 2015, AniCura has issued an annual quality report covering the developments within quality and patient safety as well as antibiotic use among AniCura’s clinics. During 2018, the majority of AniCura’s clinics reduced unnecessary use of antibiotics, and at one third of the clinics antibiotic use was reduced with more than 30 percent. Now, the company accelerates its efforts to counteract the spread of resistant bacteria and commits to reduce antibiotic use by half until year 2030.

– Resistant bacteria are today one of the most serious threats against human and animal health, driven by overconsumption of antibiotics and poor hygiene standards in health care. A wiser use of antibiotics is a key undertaking for us and we aim to reduce our antibiotic use by half, says Ulrika Grönlund, Group Medical Quality Manager AniCura.

AniCura’s quality and sustainability report is the first of its kind in the veterinary industry and covers the developments within the nine focus areas of QualiCura, AniCura’s medical quality program. In 2018, AniCura engaged with its stakeholders to take a holistic perspective on sustainability and the report for 2018 covers besides quality and antibiotic use also the company’s work to develop sustainable working conditions, support pet owners in preventive health measures as well as AniCura’s environmental impact.

– I’m proud over the fact that we are recognized for our quality development agenda and the annual quality report issued every year. This year we have taken the report a step further by including key areas of sustainability as we know sustainable veterinary care is of high importance to both customers and employees. The purpose of our report is to provide transparency around our operations and share our learnings with the entire market to inspire further development, says Peter Dahlberg, CEO AniCura.

Introducing Lintbells: UK’s #1 Vet Recommended Dog Joint Supplement Company Launches in the USA

Lintbells launches into US market with YuMOVE Soft Chews, a once daily supplement that relieves dog joint stiffness and supports mobility with visible results within the first 60-days

The UK’s market leader in dog joint supplements, Lintbells, has launched in the United States with the introduction of their most popular product, which currently helps over 1 Million dogs in Europe: YuMOVE Soft Chews.

YuMOVE Soft Chews are a joint supplement that promotes joint and cartilage health in dogs of all breeds and sizes. Made from all-natural, human-grade, non-GMO ingredients, the secret to YuMOVE Soft Chews’ success comes from Lintbells own “ActivEase Green Lipped Mussel” (or GLM).

GLM, a superfood derived from the purest sources in New Zealand, is an essential ingredient with extraordinary properties that improves joint function, mobility, and reduces discomfort in our dogs. This unique ingredient, rich with more Omega 3s than any other GLM, is naturally anti-inflammatory, meaning our dog’s stiff joints are eased naturally.

For dogs struggling with symptoms caused by joint issues, YuMOVE Soft Chews can be incorporated into any dog’s diet or routine and given once per day for guaranteed, visible results. “An active dog is a happy dog. And, by offering just one chew per day, you’ll see a visible difference in your dog within two months,” said John Howie, CEO and Co-Founder of Lintbells. “YuMOVE won’t just change your dog’s life for the better- but, yours too.”

Every dog from the age of 7 should be on a joint supplement.

Dog owners don’t always know if their dog needs to be taking a joint supplement in the first place. While supplements play an important role for senior dogs, dogs that are really active, or in the recovery process after surgery, there are several lesser known signs and symptoms to watch out for and consider.

“Dogs don’t show how they’re feeling in the way humans do and can’t tell us when they’re hurt or uncomfortable,” said Howie. “Their signs and symptoms of joint stiffness unfortunately often go unnoticed by pet parents who want the best for their dogs, but just don’t know there’s an issue to address in the first place.”

Common signs of stiffness or joint difficulty in our dogs include: lagging behind on walks, difficulties rising after rest, sleeping more, irritability, anxiety, or being reluctant to walk, run, jump and play.

By adding just one YuMOVE Soft Chew to a dog’s daily routine, they will enjoy a more active lifestyle, more playtime, and feel healthier and happier overall.

YuMOVE Soft Chews are available in 30-day packs, and three sizes: Small Dog (up to 35lb), Medium Dog (36-65lb) and Large Dog (over 65lb). YuMOVE Soft Chews start at $24.50 and can be purchased online at US.Lintbells.com.
