I would like to thank Dr. Katy for giving me an opportunity to talk about Tinks Story, our mission of increasing pet owner awareness of veterinary specialists while encouraging general vets to work together with a specialist
Boise, Idaho. (PRWEB) October 23, 2013
PetsPage creator and CEO, Karen Bostick and her little Maltipoo Tinks, the face of PetsPage.com, were guests on Washington D.C.’s “The Pet Show with Dr. Katy” this past Saturday. The Pet Show airs every Saturday on Washington D.C.’s News Channel 8 at 11:00AM and on demand around the world via the Internet. The Pet Show is hosted Dr. Katy Nelson, DVM, (CVJ) who also acts as the programs Executive Producer. Dr. Katy is also a PetsPage.com Vet Pro.
The Pet Show with Dr. Katy segment focuses on Tinks Story and Bostick’s mission of increasing pet owner awareness of veterinary specialists while encouraging general vets to work together with a specialist to ensure the best possible outcome for our pets, and her social pet community, PetsPage.com.

Bostick’s mission comes as the result of a very personal and almost tragic situation. Four years ago, her beloved little dog, Tinks almost died from an auto-immune disease. Tinks was nearing death and it wasn't until Bostick learned about Veterinary Specialists, that Tinks' life could be saved. The daughter of a veterinarian herself, even Bostick did not know about Vet Specialists. Ever since, she feels it is her job to educate pet owners on how to become their pet’s best advocate when it comes to the health of their beloved family pets.
PetsPage.com launched on July 15, 2013 and Bostick has been very successful in getting her message out through her vast social media network of 225k and growing, as well as traditional media sources. Bostick is scheduled for many other upcoming local and national media appearances in the coming months. Additionally, Outlook television will feature Bostick and PetsPage in a national public television documentary that will begin airing in early 2014.

I am excited to continue spreading my message about the life-saving potential of veterinary specialty medicine to pet lovers everywhere through social media.

Tinks’ Story and Karen’s mission has struck a chord with pet lovers around the world. During the development process of PetsPage.com, Bostick created several Facebook pages to share Tinks’ Story and his adventures. The response has been overwhelming to say the least.
