Whan NOAH made the first pilot showing of the embryonic Pet Health Information website to pet care specialists, veterinary associations and companion animal charities nearly 2 years ago, we chose to do it at the Royal Society headquarters. We were very aware we had chose a place of great history, and evidence of scientific breakthroughs was all around.
Now the Royal Society is celebrating 350 years of discovery, and there’s a fascinating slide show – and further background information – on the BBC website highlighting some of the key moments. It really does make you think about some of the great things associated with this institution, and wonder about what there may be to come.
What is amusing is we come full circle back to our love for companion animals, as the BBC link says that, as the the scientists were trying to observe the child prodigy composer Mozart and conduct experiments, he was more interested in running around the room, riding a stick as a horse!
