Healthy Dog Expo Will ‘Share the Love’ for Valentine’s Day

The Healthy Dog Expo, held April 3-4, will donate a portion of the proceeds for tickets sold 2/7-2/14 to the Paws for Change Foundation to fight canine cancer.

Online PR News – 04-February-2020 – Albany, NY – Dog lovers know there’s no greater bond than the one shared by humans and their four-legged BFFs. That’s why the Healthy Dog Expo has the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for dogs and dog lovers – a one-of-a-kind event packed with seminars by top veterinarians and holistic dog care experts designed to help your dog live a longer, happier and healthier life.

But for Valentine’s Day, the deal just got a little bit sweeter, according to Healthy Dog Expo founder Dr. Laurie Coger. That’s because anyone who buys a ticket between February 7th and Valentine’s Day will not only get the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge from the holistic dog care world’s brightest stars, but also get to share the love by helping save the lives of future generations of dogs, with Dr. Coger donating a portion of the proceeds to the Paws for Change Foundation.

Founded by Rodney Habib, director of the Dog Cancer Series documentary, the Paws for Change Foundation is dedicated to supporting longevity and wellbeing in pets through research into canine cancer and other life-threatening illnesses, exploring alternative modalities such as nutraceuticals, herbs and dietary therapy.

As Dr. Coger says, “This life-changing research will pave the way for options where conventional veterinary medicine has nothing more to offer. We are already seeing the success of alternative medicine in treating challenging cases. We want to expand on this and share the knowledge with veterinarians worldwide.”

Now in its third year, the Healthy Dog Expo is the East Coast’s only holistic dog care event. This year will feature the biggest stars in the natural veterinary health care world, including Dr. Karen Becker, Dr. Kendra Pope, Rodney Habib, Susan Thixton, Steve Brown and Susan Garrett.

Set for April 3-4 at the Red Lion Hotel in Albany, NY, the event will feature seminars on topics ranging from natural diets to new views on cancer to exciting research on longevity, as well as a host of top-notch exhibitors featuring products that support the healthy dog lifestyle.
