Citing Plumb’s triple-digit sales growth in 2017, Folio:, the leader in news, insights, and best practices for the magazine and digital publishing industry, named Plumb’s Veterinary Drugs a winner of their Digital Momentum Award. Created for today’s busy veterinarians and pharmacists, this innovative adaptation of the Plumb’s Veterinary Drug Handbook is transforming veterinary care through digital enhancements to trusted content.

Plumb’s winning marketing campaign centered on the digital platform’s largest competition: the printed book. Market research indicated that veterinarians needed to understand how this tool would ultimately save time and help improve patient care.

As our user-base grows in different dimensions, we find it our duty to continue to deliver authoritative, applicable content where and when our audience needs it most.”
