The AMC Welcomes Westminster Attendees

wkc-dog-show1On February 9-10, the famous New York City event, the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show will be held at Madison Square Garden. Over 2,000 dogs from all over the world will be in New York City to compete for the coveted Best in Show trophy.

Although spectators and dog enthusiasts from around the globe will be at the Garden, this event is a favorite with the hometown crowd as well. The Animal Medical Center is no different. We will be at the show to welcome you. Please be sure to visit us at Booth #102  for information about The AMC and to receive a free gift!

As part of our welcome, we have prepared a dog’s eye view of New York City for our guests. The list includes the three D’s: Dining, Destinations and Dog runs! We are thrilled to have so many dog visitors in NYC and hope you will stop by our booth at the Garden. We hope you won’t have a need to visit us at 510 East 62nd Street, but if you need us we’ll be open 24/7, as always, to handle any of your dog’s medical needs.

    Really marvelous post. Theoretically I could write something like this too, but taking the time and effort to make a good article is a lot of effort…but what can I say….I’m a procrastinater. Good read though.
