“PetIQ, Inc. (NASDAQ:PETQ), a holding company that engages in the manufacturing, procurement, packaging and distribution of pet health and wellness, declined amid a soft start to flea and tick season along with near-term inflationary pressures. We maintain our position, as we believe the company is well-positioned to benefit from secular demand tailwinds for pet health products. Additionally, we believe management’s focus on increased penetration for its wellness clinics has the potential to create additional value for shareholders.”
