All American Pet Brands, Inc. Announces It Will Be Providing UCLA People-Animal Connection With Its PAWtizer™ Antibacterial Spray and Wipes to Eliminate the Risk of Passing Pathogens From Medical Patient to Therapy Dog and Back to People With 99.9% Certainty

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 19, 2012) - All American Pet Company, Inc. (OTCQB: AAPT) -- UCLA's therapy dog program (PAC), the largest in the country, is the first to take a proactive position on the innocent "carriage and transmission" by therapy dogs of pathogens to and from people in medical facilities.

Lisa Bershan, AAPT President, said, "The love I get from my dogs is the best therapy, but before I would share them with my family and friends I 'PAWtize' them just to be safe as I was a victim of germs passed -- It was that incident which drove me to make a product that would make loving our pets safe for all."

PAWtizer alcohol-free, antibacterial spray and wipes with Benzalkonium Chloride will be present in the UCLA Health System to eliminate the potential risk of passing pathogens which can compromise the health of patients, medical staff and visitors as well as the therapy dog handlers themselves.

Barry Schwartz, AAPT CEO, noted, "There are more than 640,000 registered therapy dogs administering to 32,689,220 patients in the 5,385 U.S. hospitals annually. There are hand sanitizers at the entrance of every hospital room to sanitize our hands, but no one is sanitizing (PAWtizing) the therapy dog's paws. It is a well-established fact that there are as many germs on paws as there are on hands -- if not more so in a medical facility. Records show that 42 of every 1000 patients contract a MRSA infection during their stay. These numbers are staggering and speak for themselves -- intervention is a must and PAWtizer is the safe and effective protocol deliverable."
