Talk about heavyweight guests, In this Merrick Pet Care Petcast, Dr. Mark Johnston, chairman of the trustees of  Our Special Friends and VP World Small Animal Veterinary Association Foundation with Dr. Patrick Flynn, president elect of the  Human Animal Bond Association and Professional Services Veterinarian at Zoetis. 

This Petcast features the very first  announcement: International Human Animal Bond Day is November 8. And Dr. Johnson and Dr Flynn both explain that indeed it’s all about celebrating our relationships with dogs, cats and other companion animals but the human animal bond is truly much deeper than that. And what exactly is this bond? Both offer fascinating examples.

Also, another exciting announcement, the  Human Animal Bond Academy, which launches soon.
