Precious Paws- today and every day!
As we complete 18 years and will celebrate our July – August issue which will be our 19th anniversary issue and also our 115th issue, I cannot help but sniff down memory lane- the initial visits to our partners- vets, stores, events, fairs, exhibitions, learning programme etc and what is remarkable the continuous evolution of pet parenting and pet partners to greater heights. Passionate people from respective fields have worked together to make it a better world for pets- diagnostics, health care equipment, grooming, celebrity endorsements,stores where you can find everything that your dear Family Paw-needs, wants and can get pampered with. Pets are family and this is reinforced by our passionate pet parents who want the best for their pets and the industry who comes together for their wellness and wellbeing.
