Nestlé Purina recently hosted its annual Better with Pets Summit in New York City. The event hosted a series of panel discussions to explore how pets and people lead better lives through research and innovation and to consider how those changes will affect the future of pet care.
Among the announcements made during the event, Purina announced a joint project with the Mayo Clinic to study the effects of animal-assisted therapy on pain and depression among those with fibromyalgia.
“At Purina, we use our scientific resources and passion to give pets bigger lives and in return, help improve quality of life for pets and people. For four years now the Better with Pets Summit has showcased the latest advancements of the pet care community and raised awareness of topics that are fundamental to the well-being of pets and people. By bringing together the brightest minds and helping encourage these conversations to take place, we are working to create a better future for our pets.”
— Nina Leigh Krueger, President, Purina U.S.
