Now on its fourth year, Pet Ex­press Dog & Cat Expo re­cently con­cluded at the SMX Con­ven­tion Cen­ter at SM Mall of Asia. It aims to give the ca­nine and fe­line com­mu­nity a venue to dis­cover new fa­vorite prod­ucts and meet peo­ple who share their same pas­sion for pets and any­thing pet-re­lated. Or­ga­ni­za­tions for both crea­tures par­tic­i­pated with the aim of show­cas­ing their par­tic­u­lar breed to the gen­eral public. Cat and dog own­ers, with and with­out their pets, en­joyed a wide va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties and large dis­counts plus spe­cial pro­mo­tions on pet care prod­ucts. Pet own­ers saw the latest prod­ucts for pets, such as eco-friendly pet ac­ces­sories, vol­canic ash-ac­ti­vated dog treats, and high-end de­signer cat con­do­mini­ums. There was a pet bless­ing, var­i­ous pet well­ness sem­i­nars, cat cafes, adop­tion booths for both fe­lines and ca­nines, a bomb sniff­ing dog demo, dog food eat­ing con­tests, and the latest furry fit­ness craze, doga (dog yoga). Seminar top­ics in­cluded den­tal care, clar­i­fi­ca­tions of myths about pet nutri­tion, the need to adopt and res­cue cats and dogs, and fo­cus train­ing.

A lot of pet par­ents at­tended the two-day Expo with their furry kids in tow; many gamely posed for An­i­mal Scene’s rov­ing pho­tog­ra­pher.
