Summit VetPharm Announces New Distributor Partnership with Webster Veterinary
Date:4/30/2008

FORT LEE, N.J., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Webster Veterinary, a division of Patterson Companies, Inc., with headquarters in Sterling Massachusetts, and one of the largest veterinary distributors in the United States has entered into an agreement with Summit VetPharm to distribute their portfolio of ectoparasiticide products to practicing veterinarians.

"I am elated that we will be working with one of the leading veterinary distributors," commented Julia Stephanus, President and CEO of Summit VetPharm. "Our sales of Vectra 3D(TM) and Vectra(TM) for Cats and Kittens since launch have been expanding significantly. This new partnership with Webster Veterinary will help us meet the growing demand for our products."

Webster Veterinary will be joining Great Western Animal Health, Henry Schein Animal Health, Merritt Veterinary Supplies, Inc., Midwest Veterinary Supply, Inc., NLS Animal Health (a division of Henry Schein, Inc.), Northeast Veterinary Supply Company (NEVSCO), PCI Animal Health, Sanum Puerto Rico and Victor Medical Company as an official veterinary distributor for Summit VetPharm's products. In addition to a powerful distribution network, Summit VetPharm is continuing to work with its co-promotion partner, Abbott Animal Health, to represent the Vectra portfolio of products.

Summit VetPharm offers some of the newest veterinarian-dispensed ectoparasiticidal topicals for companion animals. Vectra 3D(TM), a broad-spectrum topical with dinotefuran, a third-generation neonicotinoid, effectively protects dogs against three vectors -- fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes, even in regions experiencing resistance issues. Vectra(TM) for Cats & Kittens and Vectra(TM) for Cats feature a combination of dinotefuran and pyriproxyfen that delivers rapid, effective and more complete flea control for cats and kittens.

"The timing of this new partnership is perfect stated Dr. Albert Ahn, Senior Director of Veterinary Services. Robust veterinary demand for Vectra 3D(TM) and Vectra(TM) for Cats and Kittens has been driven by a combination of factors. One of the most important has been the advent of a new flea and tick season which has many veterinarians evaluating new solutions for their patients' ectoparasiticidal needs. Our new veterinary distributor partner will help us to continue to introduce the science and innovation behind our products to the profession."
