The K9 Shop Presents Pet Nutritionist Billy Hoekman for An Evening of Pet Nutrition Discussion

It will be held on Saturday, November 6, 2021.




(PRESS RELEASE) MASSAPEQUA, NY – The K9 Shop located in Massapequa, NY announces that pet nutritionist Billy Hoekman, the vice president of nutrition and communication for Green Juju, will be hosting a live in-person event ‘An Evening of Pet Nutrition’ on Saturday, November 6, 2021, beginning at 6:30 pm held at the Massapequa location (939 Broadway Avenue, Massapequa, N.Y. 11758).

Pet parents that want to know more about pet nutrition, feeding their dogs or cats a raw food diet, will be able to learn from one of the pet industry’s most well-versed pet nutritionists.

“We are so excited to be hosting Billy Hoekman so well known in the raw feeding and pet nutrition community within the pet industry. Billy is a wealth of information – and will be providing pet parents the nutritional education they have been craving,” said Robert Tucker, co-owner of The K9 Shop.

Mr. Hoekman will be addressing many topics that a lot of pet parents just don’t know about, such as: pet food regulations, breaking down what is allowed by the AFFCO, what pet parents need to understand about feeding raw or home-cooked pet food and so much more. Billy will be able to dispel myths and misinformation about pet nutrition, which is so often in the headlines today – which can lead to a lot of confusion for the average pet parent.

“This is our first event at our newer and bigger location in Massapequa, N.Y. We are thrilled to be able to provide this for pet parents who are thinking about feeding their dog or cat a species-appropriate raw diet. They will learn so much at the event that we encourage people to bring their questions for Billy,” said Anya Tucker, co-owner of The K9 Shop.

The schedule for this event is as follows:

  • 6:30 pm the event will kick off with refreshments and mingling for attendees.
  • 7:00 pm sharp the session begins with information about Green Juju and leads into:
  • Pet Nutrition – why should pet parents be paying attention to their pet’s nutritional needs.
  • Pet Food Regulations, are there any? Billy will break it down for the attendees.
  • AFFCO – what is AFFCO and why should pet parents know about it.
  • What does the FDA have to do with Pet Nutrition?
  • Q&A with Billy throughout and at the end of the session.

“The K9 Shop does such an amazing job educating their customers and community! I’m excited to contribute and be a part of what’s going on over there and for this event. Looking forward to meeting everyone on the 6th,” stated, Billy Hoekman.

The event can accommodate up to 60 people and registration is required ahead of time for pet parents interested in attending. The event is sponsored by The K9 Shop and is a free event to attend.
