    Trade Publications/Resources

    Here are some of the biggest trade mags in the pet industry. They are read by food manufacturers (dog, cat, bird, ferret, fish, you name it), pet breeders, retailers, cage, aquarium, and other enclosure manufacturers, groomers, and many more. If a company or individual is involved with the pet industry, then they are likely to read the trades. Here are the web site addresses to some pet trade magazines that work with freelancers.

    Resource: AVMA Press Room

    Need an interview with an expert? Check out the web site of the American Veterinary Medical Association. Here's where you can get media contact info for hundreds of veterinary organizations/institutions. Just be patient--they're busy folks and can't always respond quickly. Excellent resource for anyone who writes about animals.


    Here are some market ideas. As always, contact any publication that interests you before sending articles or queries. Good luck!

    Indulge Your Pets

    This site includes links to pet trade mags, product reviews, message boards, breed info and more. It seems to focus on dogs, cats and horses, but some other pets are mentioned on the message boards, as well. Looks like a good place to get article ideas, potential markets, etc.
