The webinars take on topics such as animal diseases and prevention, technical tips for effective feeding, among others.

Maxime Talks, which has been running since August 2020, is hosted by Dr. Jose Mari Castro (Doc Jomar), a seasoned veterinarian with almost 20 years of experience here and abroad. He is currently a mainstay in the Consult a Vet program, aired in Edge TV Philippines. 

“Dog foods should have complete and balanced nutrients, vitamins, and minerals for optimum health. Special formulation of high quality ingredients that are palatable to dogs, that aid in providing them the nutrition they need to lead a long and happy life,” shared Doc Jomar. 

According to him, quality dog food is an important factor that can contribute to proper growth of dogs. He also highlighted the significance of proper nutrition in arming pets against diseases and how it boosts pets’ immunity.

Meanwhile Usapang Pagmamanok features veterinarians, successful gamefowl farm owners, and experienced breeders from Salto, the company’s premium quality gamefowl feed. 

Usapang Pagmamanok, like Maxime Talks, also discusses topics relevant to gamefowl breeding and raising, while offering live online consultations.

“Feeds that focus on feed efficiency to maximize full potential of the breeds not only ensure cost efficiency, but also high performance of the gamefowl,” said Rommel Ting, Salto’s Category Manager and almost a decade-long gamefowl specialist. 

Both Maxime Dog Food and Salto Gamefowl Feeds are carefully-formulated products that target optimum growth for dogs and gamefowl.

“When supplemented with the right animal health products such as vitamins and minerals responsible for optimum body condition, effective feeds build stronger immune systems important to ensure maximum returns for livestock and longer lifespan for pets such as dogs,” Ting added.
