Pets and People: A Magical Connection

When pets and humans connect, both benefit – it’s that simple. The bond between pets and humans has extensive psychological and health benefits for both. People with pets are happier, healthier, better adjusted, and live longer.

The veterinary profession’s mission is to safeguard and expand this ‘magical’ benefit and relationship. Boomerang Communications’ parallel objective is to improve the preventive and overall health care communications between our practices and their clients, resulting in longer, healthier lives for our pets – and their two legged friends.
