As pet parents are more and more informed about pet products in general, it is not surprising
that natural remedies and holistic products and services are on the rise. This seminar will

these products and services have for consumers and stores alike.

Laboratories for more than 20 years. In all this time, he does several pharmacy and

of Laval and Québec. Faced with the increasing demand of natural treatments for pets,
he creates with Dr. Génouel, a natural and homeopathic health product line for small
animals, called Animacare.
