Social Media Policy


General Rules

Our social channels are pet-friendly and family-friendly.  We encourage pet parents to have an open, respectful conversation in our spaces. Please understand that the postings to our social media channels do not necessarily represent the opinions of Maxine and/or Pilmico Animal Nutrition Corporation or its affiliates.

Profiles and posts that we feel are offensive, inappropriate or otherwise not in keeping with the spirit of the channel or brand, such as: advertising, spam, reflecting irresponsible pet ownership, are off-topic, contain vulgar language, may violate the rights of others, are disrespectful to any community member, show excessive poor behavior, go against the respective social platform’s community standards, or any other terms or policies, may be removed or blocked.

While there may be differences of opinion about various breeds and standards, positive and productive commentaries must be followed. Activities by those claiming to be another person, creating a false representation for an organization, or creating multiple accounts undermine our community and may be removed or blocked. Repeat offenders may be removed from the community and blocked from future Maxine and/or Pilmico commentaries. If you have a material connection to Maxine and/or Pilmico (as an employee, agency, sponsored blogger/brand ambassador, etc.), please be sure to let everyone know your affiliation when you post.
