Gronk from a Veterinary Conference


For over 20 years, I’ve attended the Western Veterinary Conference or now called, Viticus, in Las Vegas, NV. Running into former pro-football player Rob Gronkowski in the exhibit hall isn’t to be expected. He explained why he was attended a veterinary show for Anivive Lifesciences. And talked a bit about a vaccine around the corner to protect dogs from Valley Fever, which is a big deal in the American Southwest.  Anivive is also waiting for approval for a vaccine for feline infectious peritonitis (FIP).

“I’m all in with my dog Ralphie,” Gronk says. “I want him to lead the longest and healthiest life.”  Gronk explains how he is like his dog including, “He’s an ultimate chick magnet.”

Jane Fonda said, “Gronk has the best tight end I’ve ever seen.” Sally Field, Lily Tomlin, Rita Moreno, with Fonda in the film 80 for Brady which Gronk appeared in. And might this be the beginning of a movie career?

He also commented on this past year’s Super Bowl.
