Live from WVC!
Western Veterinary Conference is in full swing!  We've  had the opportunity to meet many great technicians and participate in informational and fun events ... including the Technician Party hosted by Hill's Pet Nutrition and NAVTA on Monday night.  

Students at WVC

Students from Rochester Community & Technical College in Minnesota enjoyed the Technician Party.  Pictured above [left to right]:  Rayelle Yankowiak, Kristine Miller, Adam Warzynski, Kristen Mallow, and Heather Pierce.  Below, Kristine, Adam and Heather had a blast doing the "Dance Heads" activity.  Over 400 technicians enjoyed fun, karaoke, and dessert courtesy of Hill's Pet Nutrition and NAVTA.

The Technician Fair, sponsored by Elanco and NAVTA, will be held today from 4 to 7 pm.  Technicians are invited to check out the latest offerings in academia, specialty training, industry, and professional associations.  For more information about Western Veterinary Conference, visit
CopraBan® Named Pet Product of the Year
PRN Pharmacal's CoproBan was named one of the best Pet Products of the Year by Dr. Marty Becker.  Dr. Becker, "America's Veterinarian" and resident veterinarian on Good Morning America included CoproBan as one of his favorite pet products of 2009.
CoproBan is an easy-to-feed roast beef flavored coprophagia deterrent for dogs. CoproBan contains MSG and cellulase; these two ingredients change the flavor and texture of the feces. Because CoproBan is a soft-chew, it means the end of messy powder and residue in the bowl.  CoproBan can also be fed to cats to deter litter box feeding.
