NETFLIX – “Follow the ladies behind talent management Pets on Q, Melissa and Colleen, as they work with the biggest animal influencers on social media. This pair handles Hollywood’s cutest, most high-maintenance animal clients — top hats, treats and poop to boot. Their mission centers around making the world a better place, one animal at a time, and throughout the episodes, viewers not only get to see how they run their business securing partnerships for pets, but also how they work with rescues to highlight animals in need of a better life! Whether it’s a business opportunity or a life-changing new home, their first love (and priority) are the animals.”

It has been a long time coming, and many people have asked us just how we got here, and what our plans are for the future. To be honest, it seems as though hard work has met with luck and opportunity in our case, and we couldn’t be happier about it.


So here we are, the show premiere is less than a month away and we are working hard to make sure that both the business, and we as individuals, are prepared.  We aren’t entirely sure just what to prepare for, to be honest, but we are very excited to find out! As we look towards the future of Pets on Q, we are very excited to see what comes next. Our love for animals and the idea of making the world a better place, one animal at a time, is always first and foremost and we cannot wait to share it with all of you!


Please join us next week on the Pets on Q Instagram page as Colleen and I get together to do a LIVE broadcast and watch Netflix’s official Pet Stars trailer when it debuts on YouTube!  Then stay tuned for a live Q and A right afterwards! Comment below with questions for us to answer in the live!

April is Heartworm Awareness month and according to the American Heartworm Society more than a million pets in the U.S. have heartworms, but heartworm disease is highly preventable. Heartworm disease is not contagious, meaning that a dog cannot catch the disease from being near an infected dog. Heartworm disease is only spread through the bite of a mosquito. Cats can also get heartworms, so it’s important to feed all your pets a healthy diet and get them regular checkups with your Vet. The best treatment is prevention, and there are many products available that are FDA-approved to prevent heartworms. If you are concerned that your pet may be infected, its imperative that you receive the proper care right away.

April is also host to National Pet ID week from the 17th to the 23rd. This observance is to remind all pet owners out there to make sure every single one of their pets has the proper identification. It is estimated that one in three pets will go missing at some point in their life. According to the ASPCA, “Approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats. About 710,000 animals who enter shelters as strays are returned to their owners.” This means that many pets go unclaimed and unfound because they were lacking in the proper ID. Please make sure all your pets have collars, tags and microchips with up-to-date information. There are many national pet registries for pet microchips, do a search online or ask your Vet for a recommendation.

April is another month chock full of potential. From Earth Day to National Pet Day to Easter, there are lots of opportunities to inspire creativity. Try to challenge yourself to think outside the box and do something different. We cannot wait to see what you come up with, so please remember to always tag @PetsonQ in your content for your own chance to be featured! Have a great month!
