The IKC St Patrick’s Day International Show was such a fitting place to launch Macahl Animal Health’s new product range, Oralade Hydrate + for dogs and cats. Firstly, being a solely Irish owned and Irish produced brand to launch on home turf on St Patrick’s day filled the team with a great deal of excitement. Secondly, it was amazing to return to the very same show where it all began for us 12 years ago. This was the first place that we exhibited a product, even before our brand name was created.
The buzz around our stand was incredible and even though Ireland experienced snow and blizzards that weekend, the turnout was amazing. Our products could not have been better received by both the dogs and their owners. We were placed just alongside the show rings and therefore we had many thirsty competitors visit our complementary bowls filled with Hydrate + and needless to say there were many refills needed throughout the weekend.
Diana and Christopher did an excellent jobs representing Macahl throughout the weekend. The met and talked to many customers and offered helpful tips on hydration and some free product. One of their favourite visitors to the stand was Mickey Parker, who incidentally was our first ever customer 12 years ago. Her and her gorgeous team of dachshunds couldn’t wait to ty out the new formula on the day.
We also ran a very successful competition on the days of the show and we were delighted to draw out our winner live on Facebook last week. Well done to Jenna Boyd and her dog Alfie, who’ve received 24 bottles of Oralade Hydrate + and some Oralade goodies.
