HANCOCK, Md., Aug. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PetLife Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB:PTLF) (the "Company"), a developer of a new generation of high potency veterinary cancer medications and nutraceuticals for pets, is pleased to announce the signing of a contract with InnoVision Therapeutics, a major step towards the Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM)/FDA testing and approval process for Vitalzul™.

With its ease of administering and significantly lower cost than traditional treatments, PetLife is excited about its new Vitalzul™ product line and expects strong market acceptance.
“We are pleased to be working with PetLife Pharmaceuticals. Our great success with Escozine as a therapeutic drug in Humans will be of great benefit to PetLife's Vitalzul™ CVM/FDA process,” stated Dr. Mishra, Managing Director of InnoVision Therapeutics.
Dr. Salvagno, CEO of PetLife Pharmaceuticals, comments on the company's progress "We are delighted that InnoVision is taking PetLife on as a new client.
