We are very pleased to announce that Cosequin will feature the work of Gorilla Doctors in their upcoming ‘Love Your Pet, Trust Your Vet’™ campaign! Manufactured by Nutramax, Cosequin is a nutritional supplement that helps domestic animals maintain healthy joints. With this campaign, Cosequin is celebrating veterinarians “who provide compassionate and quality health care” to animals around the world.

Gorilla Doctors Board Member Jack Hanna is the connecting link between Gorilla Doctors and Cosequin. The Cosequin spokesperson is a long-time supporter of Gorilla Doctors and has served as a board member for the last 10 years. Jack and his wife Suzi have been traveling to Rwanda since the 1980’s and now own a home outside of Volcanoes National Park and he has witnessed firsthand the work of our field veterinarians.

The animal expert’s hands-on approach has won him widespread acclaim as Director Emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, conservationist, author, television personality, and lifelong adventurer. Recognized around the country as America’s favorite zookeeper, Jack has made countless television appearances since 1983 on shows such as Good Morning America, The Late Show with David Letterman, Larry King Live, Fox News Programs, and CNN News Programs.

“When my friends at Cosequin approached me about identifying dedicated veterinarians around the world to feature in their new “Love Your Pet, Trust Your Vet” campaign, I didn’t hesitate to immediately recommend the Gorilla Doctors’ work in Rwanda” said Hanna. “The Gorilla Doctors protect, monitor, and advocate for the majestic endangered mountain gorilla population and we have been supporters and admirers of theirs for decades.  Rwanda’s wildlife and people hold a special place in my heart – I am proud to work with Cosequin, a company that truly cares about animals, to support veterinarians worldwide!”
