Three-day exhibition offers a wide range of products, services

HYDERABAD: Animal lovers in the city are in for a treat of sorts. A three-day exhibition on pets and aquariums, which was inaugurated here on Tuesday, promises to offer them a wide range of products as well as services.

The National Fisheries Development Board (NFDB), Animal Welfare Society, Virbac Animal Health and others have set up stalls to cater to both those who already have pets and those who wish to buy them.

Aquariums of all kinds, including aesthetically designed wall mounted ones, dominate the exhibition as fish seem to be a popular choice among prospective buyers.

The NFDB is marketing ornamental aquariums on behalf of self help groups and other entrepreneurs.

For those who are overwhelmed at the thought of getting a pet, the exhibition has a storehouse of information to help you out. Tips on preparing your home for the pet, naming it, travelling with it, vaccinating it, toilet training are all there to help novice pet owners.

At the same time, doctors from the Animal Welfare Society are available to conduct free check ups and give prescriptions.

Free anti-rabies vaccines for the pets are also being provided during these three days at the Institute of Engineers, Khairatabad.

“Pets are known to be stress busters,” says M.A. Naseer, Chief Executive, NSR Publications and organiser. “People who have pets can relax with them after a hard day of work. Aquariums are an excellent option because you can have them at work as well.”

So if you are looking to buy a pet, or need any help with your exiting ones, this could very well be your one-stop shop.
