Chilliwack, BC – June 25, 2019 – Petcurean, a leading manufacturer of premium-quality pet food, available in more than 30 countries around the world, is pleased to announce that Michele Dixon, a Health and Nutrition Specialist at the Company, has been honoured with a 2019 ICON Award from Pet Age magazine. This annual award honors those pet professionals who have demonstrated a long-term commitment to the sustained vitality and growth of the pet industry. Dixon was selected based on her vast expertise and contributions to pets and their families over the past 20 years.

Chosen from a large pool of qualified candidates across the pet food industry, including top manufacturers, distributors, retailers, PR firms and more, the recipients of this year’s Pet Age ICON Awards were selected based on their experience, integrity and leadership. Each honoree will be acknowledged for their meaningful and lasting contributions in the August 2019 issue of Pet Age.

“Every day, Michele makes a difference in the lives of pets and their families by helping them find the best possible dietary solutions, whether that’s a high animal protein kibble recipe like our GO! SOLUTIONS CARNIVORE™ recipes, a NOW FRESH™ wet food recipe, or most typically, a mixture of wet and dry recipes,” says Christine Mallier, PR and Community Relations Manager, Petcurean Pet Nutrition.

“Her warmth, kindness and expertise as a pet nutrition expert over the past 20 years, are just a few of the many reasons Michele is an incredibly worthy recipient of Pet Age’s 2019 ICON Award. Our company, and our industry, wouldn’t be what it is today without her many contributions. Congratulations Michele!”

Prior to joining Petcurean, Dixon studied animal nutrition at the Colorado State University and the Companion Animal Sciences Institute. She also studied (Equine) Nutrition through the Equine Research Center at the University of Guelph. As Health and Nutrition Specialist at Petcurean, Dixon plays an integral role in translating complex nutrition information into easy-to-understand formats which are used to train the Company’s customer care team, which in turn benefits pet parents with their questions from around the globe. In addition to Dixon’s Pet Age ICON Award, Petcurean’s Nutrition Manager, Dr. Jennifer Adolphe, was named a 2019 Woman of Influence by the magazine in February 2019.
