Lucky WVC Attendees to Win Generic Drugs From Putney

Posted: Feb. 13, 2014, 2:45 p.m. EST

Putney Inc., a manufacturer of generic veterinary pharmaceuticals, will award nearly $2,000 worth of products during drawings taking place next week at the Western Veterinary Conference in Las Vegas.

The daily giveaway will see veterinarians and an animal shelter of their choice each receiving a supply of FDA-approved Putney medications. A grand prize worth $1,000 will be awarded at the end of the trade show, which runs from Feb. 17 to 19.

Launched in December 2013, Putney’s Mupirocin Ointment 2% is an anti-infective.
Generic drugs are important to the veterinary industry, said Jean Hoffman, president and CEO of the Portland, Maine, company.

"Putney is committed to increasing veterinary choice,” Hoffman said. "Our R&D pipeline is focused on bringing high quality, generic-equivalent pet drugs through the FDA approval process so that veterinarians and pet owners can choose and afford the best drugs for the pet patient.”

Similar drawings were conducted in January during the North American Veterinary Community conference in Orlando, Fla. One of those winners, Steven Beckett, DVM, of Baraboo Valley Veterinary Clinic in Baraboo, Wis., chose the Sauk County Humane Society to receive a supply of Putney drugs.

"Shelters have very tight budgets and Putney’s donation will really help them treat more animals,” Dr. Beckett said.

Veterinarians attending the Western Veterinary Conference may enter the drawing at the Putney booth (1675).
