Petcurean health and nutrition specialist recognized with award


Petcurean, a manufacturer of premium-quality pet food, announced that Michele Dixon, a health and nutrition specialist at Petcurean, has been honoured with a 2019 ICON Award from Pet Age magazine. This annual award honours pet professionals who have demonstrated a long-term commitment to the sustained vitality and growth of the pet industry. Dixon was selected based on her vast expertise and contributions to pets and their families over the past 20 years.

Chosen from a large pool of qualified candidates across the pet food industry, including top manufacturers, distributors, retailers, PR firms and more, the recipients of this year’s Pet Age ICON Awards were selected based on their experience, integrity and leadership. Each honoree will be acknowledged for their meaningful and lasting contributions in the August 2019 issue of Pet Age.

Prior to joining Petcurean, Dixon studied animal nutrition at the Colorado State University and the Companion Animal Sciences Institute. She also studied (Equine) Nutrition through the Equine Research Center at the University of Guelph. As Health and Nutrition Specialist at Petcurean, Dixon develops and leads science-based nutrition training for Petcurean’s sales teams, which in turn benefits the Company’s specialty retail partners. In addition to Dixon’s Pet Age ICON Award, Petcurean’s Nutrition Manager, Dr. Jennifer Adolphe, was named a 2019 Woman of Influence by the magazine in February 2019.
