They came from Mike Krajewski, practice manager at Dr. Nina’s Animal Hospital in Sarasota, Fla., who came out on the losing side of a battle with a malicious Russian hacker. Krajewski, who acknowledges that he knows “quite a bit about IT,” had a seemingly solid plan in place to secure and store the animal hospital’s data.

Months of controversy Pet Med Express, also known as 1-800-Pet-Meds, approached NAVC in September and asked to become an exhibitor and sponsor of the conference.

Within a couple of days, the petition had approximately 200 names. In the petition, Donaldson and her supporters asked that Pet Med Express leave the conference, referring to its "illegal and unethical practices", and referring to it as an "unscrupulous company".
