The award-winning series “Lucky Dog” is currently in its fifth season. The show has continued as part of the Saturday morning “CBS Dream Team, It’s Epic!” line-up. The weekly half-hour series is hosted by animal trainer Brandon McMillan. Since its premiere in 2013, “Lucky Dog” has won two Daytime Emmys, two Parent’s Choice Awards and five Telly Awards.
McMillan works with animal shelters across the U.S. to save one dog at a time, as he rescues lonely, unwanted dogs living without hope. Then, back at his training facility, known as the Lucky Dog Ranch, he goes to work on the seemingly impossible task of turning the frightened pooches into perfect pets. Shows include visits to veterinary clinics, emphasizing the veterinarian as an integral partner in the life-long human animal bond. In the end, a lucky family will adopt an even luckier dog.
“We are very blessed and excited for the opportunity to support Brandon in finding loving homes for these dogs, in addition to highlighting the importance of veterinary care,” said Todd Henderson, DVM, president and CEO of Nutramax Laboratories Veterinary Sciences, Inc., the maker of Cosequin. “For our company, it’s about more than just manufacturing quality products. We are dedicated to helping animals and committed to veterinarians caring for these animals all around the world. ”
Lucky Dog is a co-production between the Cosequin Joint Health Supplement Brand and Litton Entertainment, the Emmy award-winning creators of Educational and Informational Television.
