PetsPage.com TagLine: “Spreading happiness locally and globally one pet at a time.” Headquarters - Boise, Idaho Staff: Kelle Sweeny – Operations Coordinator PetsPage Social Media: Facebook: We Love Tinks, Karen Bostick & Tinks, MyPetAdvocate.org Twitter Pinterest Karen’s Blog Facebook Fact – We Love Tinks, Karen Bostick & Tinks and MyPetAdvocate.org collectively have almost 150,000 likes and counting. Hi, I’m Karen Bostick, the creator of PetsPage.com. Most pet owners don’t know veterinary specialists, like the veterinary internist needed to save my little Tinks’ life, even exist. Thankfully, I found out just in time to save Tinks. I quickly learned I was not alone in my lack of awareness of veterinary specialty medicine. So I made it my mission to create awareness for other pet owners, so they can be informed should a tragedy strike. Please take a minute to watch the introduction video on the next page. You’ll also find more about PetsPage.com, including our background, photos, site features as well as other information I hope you’ll find useful. I’d love to share more with you about my mission and how I’m getting the word out to other pet owners about veterinary specialty medicine. I believe your readers and/or viewers will find my story and the information compelling. Please contact me at media@petspage.com or 800.832.5696 x104 to schedule an interview today. I look forward to speaking with you soon! Karen Bostick, Creator and CEO, PetsPage.com

  • 4. PetsPage Media Resource Guide Fast Facts Video Mission Background Karen Bostick Bio Vet Experts Dr. Tiffany Bio Site Features Testimonials Karen Bostick; Interview Questions Story Topics Dr. Tiffany, DVM; Interview Questions Story Topics Photos & Logos Contact PetsPage Mission To make pet owners aware of a higher level of veterinary care in the form of veterinary specialists that few pet owners know exist, and that can quite literally save pets’ lives through an engaging social community designed to connect pet lovers with other pet lovers as well as veterinary specialists, other pet professionals and pet products in a fun, friendly and interactive way at PetsPage.com. PetsPage Background In 2009, PetsPage.com creator Karen Bostick’s beloved Maltipoo dog, Tinks became critically ill. Tinks was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease, Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA). The general practice veterinarian treating Tinks diagnosed him, but did not recommend any additional outside help. With Tinks at death’s doorstep, Karen begged her vet for more treatment options. Finally, with only moments to spare in Tinks’ life, she was informed that the specialized veterinary care Tinks needed was indeed available. Tinks was ultimately saved by a board certified veterinary internist – a veterinary specialist - and now he’s a happy, healthy, and vibrant 9 year old member of Karen’s family. The daughter of a veterinarian herself, Karen was surprised that even she was unaware of veterinary specialists. Her experience with Tinks set her on a mission to bring awareness to other pet lovers. Shortly after Tinks’ recovery in 2009, Karen co- founded BlackwellKing, a recruiting and change consulting firm in specialty veterinary medicine. After working for several years directly with veterinary specialists, she knew she needed to work more closely with pet owners to increase awareness about advanced veterinary care. She left BlackwellKing in early 2013 to create PetsPage.com to do just that. PetsPage.com is not however, just a dry pet health education website. In fact, it’s anything but! PetsPage.com is an engaging social community designed to connect pet lovers with other pet lovers as well as veterinary specialists, other pet professionals and pet products in a fun, friendly and interactive way!

Social Entrepreneur – Pet Advocate Creator – PetsPage.Com Karen Bostick is more than a social entrepreneur pioneering a pet lifestyle through entrepreneurship and pet advocacy. Karen is filled with passion and purpose as the result of a scary personal experience that almost ended in the tragic death of a beloved member of her family – an adorable little Maltipoo named Tinks. In 2009, Karen discovered Tinks was critically ill and was fading fast. Her primary veterinarian continued treatment but little Tinks was not getting any better and fading fast. A Southern Belle, originally from Alabama with a determined spirit, Karen was not about to give up on Tinks. Tinks was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease, Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA). The general vet treating Tinks did not recommend any additional treatment. With Tinks at death’s doorstep, Karen begged her vet for more treatment options. Finally, she was informed that the specialized veterinary care Tinks needed was indeed available. Tinks was ultimately saved by a board certified veterinary internist – a veterinary specialty and now is a happy, healthy, and vibrant 9 year old member of Karen’s family. The daughter of a veterinarian herself, Karen was surprised that even she was unaware of veterinary specialists. Her experience with Tinks set her on a mission to bring awareness to other pet lovers. In 2009, along with her sister, Karen co - founded BlackwellKing a recruiting and change consulting firm in specialty veterinary medicine. During her tenure at Blackwell King, Karen visited many veterinary specialty hospitals and attended numerous specialized conventions. Now, more than ever, Bostick was convinced it was time to bring her message of hope for seriously ill pets with the advanced treatment options available through veterinary specialists to a larger stage. Karen left BlackwellKing in 2013 to purse her vision of connecting pet owners with veterinary specialists. The result is PetsPage.com.
