Pet King Donates Generous Amount of Product to Shelters
Pet King Brands, Inc. donated 12,000 bottles of ZYMOX PLUS Advanced Otic ear products to help animals in shelters and rescues suffering from ear infections. The $240,000 donation is the company's largest to date.
The novel product is part of the enzymatic family of products for the management of pet ear infections. Ear infections are among the top health issues seen among dogs in animal shelters, rescues, humane societies and animal sanctuaries across the U.S. According to Nationwide Insurance, pet medical claims for ear infections were the second most common medical condition to prompt a visit to the veterinarian in 2017.
These infections can cause a myriad of symptoms, including pain, discharge, irritability and even hearing loss, if left untreated. Ear infections can also make it more challenging for shelters to adopt out afflicted dogs.
Pet King has been an animal advocate for 10 years. The position has grown into an entire department dedicated to Cause Marketing, and is a guiding principle of Pamela K. Bosco, Pet King president.
“We receive stories all the time regarding the impact ZYMOX has had on pet ear health,” said Bosco. “We are also aware that shelters are overcrowded and under-funded with a large pet population suffering from painful ear infections. We realized we could help on a large scale. We want pets to become more adoptable, sooner. Plus, ZYMOX is very easy to use, which reduces the demands on the shelter staff.”
