Celebrating National Pet Week

We've been celebrating NATIONAL PET WEEK!  National Pet Week® celebrates the bond we have with our pets, and all they give to us.  It encourages pet owners to be certain they provide their best friends with all they need for a happy, healthy life every week of the year!

NATIONAL PET WEEK was Created in 1981 by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the Auxiliary to the AVMA.  The first week of May is designated as National Pet Week, and is dedicated to celebrating America's more than 200 million pets. 

Bil-Jac® pet food company is supporting National Pet Week by sharing 8 Ways You Can Be a Better Pet Parent with dedicated pet parents everywhere! Keep these important tips in mind all year long.

Our pets enrich our lives in so many ways, every day of the year. 

NATIONAL PET WEEK reminds us to celebrate our animal companions and encourages responsible pet care. 

Bil-Jac is a family brand that has been in business for over 60 years.  In the early 1940's two brothers, Bill and Jack, were in the armed forces serving in World War II.  After returning home, they set out to fill a gap in pet food nutrition by creating what they felt was a much needed  "great improvement" in the pet food that was being offered to the consumer.  It's easy to see how they came up with the company name, they simply combined their first names, dropping the last letter off each name, and in 1947 the pet food company Bil-Jac was born!

NOTE: In exchange for sharing their 8 Ways To Be A Better Pet Parent with my readers, Bil-Jac  offered me a bag of delicious Bil-Jac treats.
