Petique Book Signing By Veterinarian, Kristen Nelson

On Saturday, May 14th, 2011, I will be appearing at Petique – the Arizona Humane Society adoption center and store located at the Biltmore in Phoenix, Arizona.  Come get your veterinary questions answered from 1:00 to 3:00 pm during a question and answer session with the vet.  I will also autograph copies of my book, Coated With Fur: A Vet’s Life.  Forty percent of the cover price of each book purchased during the event will go directly to the Arizona Humane Society.

I believe animals transform us!  Thus, my work as a speaker, author and clinical veterinarian is a celebration of the bond between people and animals.  Sadly, every four minutes, an animal enters the doors of the Arizona Humane Society.  This event draws attention to the wonderful animals who need homes and the benefits to humans who adopt them.  Did you know that people who live with a pet enjoy lower levels of cholesterol and triglycerides as well as lower blood pressure?  Pet owners also get more exercise, visit their physicians fewer times each year and report fewer feelings of isolation and loneliness.  

Please join me on May 14th.  I would love to meet you in person.  Together let’s support the great work of the Arizona Humane Society.
