    There were a lot of innovative new cat litters at Global Pet Expo, from alternative litters made from corn, recycled paper and walnuts to more environmentally friendly and lighter weight clay litters. One of the most intriguing new litters I saw was the new Simple Solution 30-Day Litter.

    In my book, veterinarians are heroes. I dont know another profession where one person functions as your pets general doctor, anesthesiologist, surgeon, radiologist, internist, as well as small business owner, employer, and spokesperson for those who cant speak.

    Medical Arts Press, a company that specializes in providing office supplies, filing supplies, postcards, furniture and more for veterinary and physicans practices, believes that vets are heroes, too. They believe it so much that theyre...
