Now that we've covered for any disasters, I'd like to thank our sponsor's for bringing in some extra prizes to round out the fun packages. You'll want to know a bit about these terrific companies who are supplementing the prizes and making sure your first aid and evacuation kits are supplied. Special thanks to all three of these companies.
You may recall the Gamma 2 Travel-tainer from a previous Twitter Party, #Gamma2Fresh. This terrific company takes freshness very seriously, and that's an important thing when you're storing your pet's food for a fast getaway. Visit them on their website, Facebook and Twitter.
Healer's Pet Care makes bandages and booties to protect pet wounds and keep them clean while healing progresses. The leg bandages that they are providing for our prize packages don't slip down, are reusable, washable, and use a velcro closure for security. Check them out at their website, on Facebook and Twitter.
Last but definitely not least is quickly going to be your pet's favorite toy. The Scents of Security allows you to store a piece of your clothing safely inside, to leave with your pet when you're apart. This scent of you will make Fido or Fluffy feel less alone and more confident in your absence. This toy is made by Petlinks. You'll find their products at Petco, PetSmart, PetValu.com, Wag.com, HSN.com, and OnlyNaturalPet.com.
Petlinks System has just recently joined the ranks of Facebook. You can say thank you to each of these fine companies for helping with the prizes by visiting their Facebook pages and "Liking" them. It'll make you feel good :)
Last but not least, I need to cover the players in tonight's game. Based on this information, you can decide who you'd like to follow at the party. Of course, you can always just follow a search for #Pet1stAid and see the whole thing. Be prepared to refresh frequently to keep up with the flow!
