Courtney Campbell, DVM, famed veterinarian and media personality, took home Global Pet Expo’s annual Excellence in Journalism and Outstanding Contributions to the Pet Industry Award. He accepted the award on Feb. 27 in Orlando, Fla., during The Purina Media Reception at Global Pet Expo, a trade show that is presented by the American Pet Products Association (APPA) and Pet Industry Distributors Association (PIDA).
