The conference was excellent - I met interesting people and learned helpful tips. To win a pet vacuum at a writers' conference was quite a nice surprise.

In 1998, the GREENIES® brand recreated the dental treat category with their famous green, toothbrush-shaped pet dental chew. The next generation of GREENIES® Dental Chews was introduced in 2006, with a special design and textures to accommodate the unique chewing characteristics of the differing shapes and sizes of dogs, and containing highly soluble and digestible ingredients. GREENIES® Dental Chews are the # 1 veterinary-recommended pet specialty dental treat and carry the Veterinary Oral Health Council Seal of Acceptance for demonstrated efficacy in controlling plaque and tartar. In 2007, GREENIES SENIOR® and GREENIES LITE® Dental Chews were introduced to meet the needs of older dogs and to provide a lower-calorie dental treat to the market. Also that year FELINE GREENIES® Dental Treats were re-launched with an all-natural formula that is 100% nutritionally complete and balanced. GREENIES® PILL POCKETS® Treats were introduced in 2004 to help veterinarians and pet owners administer medication. In 2010, the brand introduced GREENIES® PILL POCKETS® Treats Allergy Formula, designed for the millions of dogs and cats who suffer from food allergies. The GREENIES® Brand is passionate in its pursuit of naturally effective functional treats that provide the best oral care, medication compliance, nutrition and enjoyment for companion animals.
