Pet Industry News is relaunching in print in May and to mark the occasion we are publishing the inaugural Pet Industry’s 30 Most Influential list.

We’ve been blown away by the number of nominations we have received so far, but we want you to know that there is still time to get those nominations in.

We want to ensure that all corners of the pet industry are represented, so if you know of a standout vet, breeder, or groomer, that you think needs to be acknowledged on the list, then we want to hear from you. If you’re a reptile expert or if you work in the aquatics sector – no nomination is too big or too small, please get in touch!

At Pet Industry News we recognise it’s the people whose vital work keeps the industry going from strength to strength and we’re looking to celebrate hard-working individuals from all sectors of the industry.

Deborah Jackson, Associate Publisher of Pet Industry News, said it is important to recognise the tireless work those in the industry do to keep it afloat.

“This list, in our 30th anniversary issue, will be showcasing the best up and coming talent within the industry as well as highlighting industry pioneers, so every nomination matters.

“We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has nominated so far and we look forward to sharing the final list with you all in May.”

We’re calling on nominations of people who have made a substantial impact on the pet industry – be they suppliers, retailers, breeders, vets, groomers, we are calling on nominations of people who are advocates of the pet care community and the animals we serve.

If you think you have made a mark on the industry, or if you would like to nominate a colleague or industry peer, please reach out to Deb at or on 0423 415 776.
