🥃 Are you a glass half-full person? Or half-empty? I try to be positive and look for the positive.
What is positive thing of Covid-19 and all these in-person veterinary conferences being cancelled (trust me, that makes me so sad)? The conferences are going virtual, and we have this amazing opportunity to do them from the comfort of our own home or veterinary hospital.
For this first time, the Banfield Pet Healthcare Industry Summit is online, 🆓 and open to us all. Yes it is FREE!
So register ASAP. It’s tomorrow Monday September 14 and it’s live. The lineup is amazing. I’m honored to be doing a roundtable with @ericgarciafl & @adam_christman And check out the other speakers including @drcourtneydvm @vettechkelsey @drandyroark and @drdavenicol @mollsmcdvm @rebeccarosecvt And I so excited to hear Dan Heath, author of Two of my favorite books, Made to Stick and The Power of Moments
Hope to see you there! #banfieldindustrysummit ... See MoreSee Less

A new study debunks dog years 📋
You may have heard that every dog year is like 7 human years, so my 11 year old Matilda is 77, and 3 year old Penelope is 21, right?
Researchers at UC San Diego claim their genetic formula is more accurate than the traditional ratio if 1 to 7. I will be honest, the study is based on epigenetics - not my favorite topic (the study of gene expression). But they looked at a methylation-based formula and this epigenetic clock helps determine the age of the cell, tissue or organism. And the results are super interesting IMO.
Dogs age more rapidly especially when they are young, so a 1-year dog is more similar to a 30-year old person. I guess that makes sense when we remember a 9-month old dog can have puppies.
A 4-year old dog is similar to a 52-year old person. Then by age 7, dog aging slows.
Thanks to by JAVMA news for covering this. The article was published in the online journal Cell Systems if you want to check it out and you like epigenetics more than I do. What do you think? Drop a comment below. 👇🏼 @ Asharoken, New York ... See MoreSee Less
