Recover a Pet, Uncover a Cure

24PetWatch™ Supports American Breast Cancer Foundation™ Through Every Pet Protected by Exclusive New MiniChip™

OAKVILLE, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 6, 2012) - Pethealth Inc. (TSX:PTZ) ("Pethealth" or the "Company"), North America's leading provider of companion animal RFID technology for lost pet recovery, has launched a campaign which supports the American Breast Cancer Foundation while raising awareness about lost pet recovery and the exclusive new 24PetWatch MiniChip™.

Through the "Recover a Pet, Uncover a Cure" campaign, a portion of the purchase price of every MiniChip will be donated to the American Breast Cancer Foundation in support of breast cancer research. At one third the size of standard microchip technology, the 24PetWatch MiniChip™, developed and manufactured by Allflex USA, Inc., offers a more humane alternative for microchip use in small breed dogs, cats, and kittens.

Pet owners interested in participating in the campaign are encouraged to contact their local animal shelter or veterinary clinic to ask about the 24PetWatch MiniChip, which is widely available through over 4,000 veterinary clinics and animal welfare groups in the United States.
