Zoetis launches Get Social Sweepstakes for EQStable™

Participants can win a trip to the 2014 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo or HITS Zoetis $1 Million Grand Prix


FLORHAM PARK, N.J., May 13, 2014 — Zoetis is giving horse owners a chance to win one of two getaways in the Get Social Sweepstakes that showcases its EQStable™ page on Facebook® and its EQStable app for the iPhone®.
 
Through June 8, participants can enter the sweepstakes by visiting http://bit.ly/1fPLZ2R. After filling out a form, entrants will have a chance to either like the EQStable page on Facebook or download the EQStable app on their Apple® iOS device to be eligible to win.
 
By liking the EQStable page or downloading the EQStable app during the promotion period, entrants can earn a chance to win a trip for two to either the HITS Zoetis $1 Million Grand Prix in September in Saugerties, New York, or to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in December in Las Vegas. By sharing the sweepstakes information with friends and colleagues, participants can earn up to 10 total entries in the sweepstakes. One winner will be randomly selected.
 
The sweepstakes highlights two great resources for horse owners from Zoetis. The EQStable page on Facebook provides a place for people to talk about their mutual passion for horses, share experiences and access valuable horse health information. The EQStable app gives users resources at their fingertips as well as a place to keep all of their horse health information.
 
“Spring is finally here and we know how much everyone is looking forward to getting out with their horses,” said Kate Russo, marketing manager, U.S. Equine Marketing, Zoetis. “These two resources and the Get Social Sweepstakes capture what the barn is all about, from friends and camaraderie to horse health and fun rides, not to mention a chance to win big. Good luck to everyone!”
 
By liking the EQStable page, horse owners are joining an equine community of fellow horse lovers as well as gaining access to equine-related education and expertise. The EQStable page provides veterinary tips, highlights different breeds, includes a quote of the day and features a horse of the week. It also features photos and videos, and it invites others to do the same, to share their experiences with horses.
 
By downloading the EQStable app, users can enjoy an app developed by horse owners, for horse owners. The app’s tutorial video will walk users through all of its great benefits. Users can easily track and share rides with friends, locate nearby veterinarians and gas stations, get the latest equine news and log vaccinations, deworming and dental exams. The app was recently updated with an Individualized Deworming questionnaire that helps horse owners determine their horse’s parasite risk profile and lets them create an Individualized Deworming (ID) plan with their veterinarian. There’s also an improved calendar and scheduling functions.
