Hill’s Pet Nutrition


As warm spring days come, many owners and their pets enjoy long walks in the fresh air. But for some dogs spring does not seem to be a very enjoyable season. These are pets prone to allergies to environmental components that include fleas, pollen, dust and even grass. In spring symptoms may become worse and can be accompanied by itching, swelling of mucous membranes, runny nose, watery eyes and constant sneezing.

If you notice these signs in your pet, it is essential to immediately consult with your vet. If the cause really comes to environmental substances, your vet will help you choose the right treatment and can offer your pet a special diet, like Hill’s Prescription Diet Derm Defense by our Barbus company partner Hill’s Pet Nutrition.

This nutrition is specially formulated for dogs suffering from environmental allergies:
☑️ Clinically proven to help strengthen skin barrier
☑️ Contains the optimal level of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids for healthy skin and shiny coat
☑️ Soothes and maintains healthy skin and fur
☑️ Promotes natural skin regeneration
☑️ Supports immune system

📌What helps you relax?
The time I spend with my friends, sports and self-development.

Today we’d like you to meet Konstantin Kiva, our Barbus company veterinary consultant, sharing his experience of remote work.

🏠 Konstantin showed us his new working place, explained how his workflow has changed and shared his thoughts on what will be different after returning to the office.

📌What are the changes you experienced when working remotely?
When I started to work remotely, I had to slightly adjust my workflow. I started to work with my colleagues and clients online more often, especially at the times when public transport did not work. It helped to save a lot of time that I usually spent on getting to the office. What’s more, I avoided standing in traffic jams for a long time. Now the situation is better, as there is often a way to visit customers face to face.

📌 What helps you be productive?
That is fully focusing on my workflow. And also some good rest after the work.

📌What helps you relax?
Reading literature, listening to professional lectures and chatting with interesting and positive people.

📌What do you think will change after returning to the office?

📌What are the changes you experienced when working remotely?
I started to have more time for my daily tasks. Now at 8:30 instead of standing in a traffic jam, I already start my working day. And this is very important for Kyiv. What’s more, it is possible to better focus and there are less things that disturb me from work.
At the same time, I do not face the lack of communication. I have a lot of calls, emails, meetings during the day, but all this is because of my type of work.

📌 What helps you be productive?
Motivation, being result-oriented.

📌What helps you relax?
Doing sports and active leisure, like skiing and snowboarding.

📌What do you think will change after returning to the office?
Everything will change!:) Business model has changed, in the future employees will be able to work from anywhere in the world, without being tied to the office. And the office itself will change, many international companies have already abandoned fixed working places and switched to using open spaces, where any employee can choose/change his or her working place, or just pick up a vacant one😉

📌What would you like to wish your colleagues?
Strong immunity to ward off the negatives, that’s the first thing! And speaking about work, that is bright, great and inspirational victories, creative, non-standard solutions, more optimism! And to go further and further!

Meet Tetiana Zavezion, Aricol Group Legal Advisor.

📌 What are the changes you experienced when working remotely?
When working remotely, I am more focused, and, I hope, more productive and able to provide more qualitative service. I believe that is because most requests I get are in emails, which reduces distraction and allows me to perform tasks consistently. And the time I do not spend on going to and back from the office can be spent with pleasure in a more rational way. There are no other changes I experienced by far.
📌What helps you be productive?
Pre-planned working day, being satisfied with my work, understanding my responsibility for finishing tasks on time and in a qualitative way.
📌 What helps you relax?
Music, interesting movies/books, embroidery. As I often switch to such things, the solution of complex problems comes instantly. And then I wonder how simple everything was. The answers to difficult questions appeared to be on the surface. You just had to see them.
📌 What do you think will change after returning to the office?
Communication between colleagues will improve. We will understand that people we work with are a part of our lives and they give us much more than we think. We change the world and people we interact with. And the world and the people around us are changing us. I will gladly return to the office to receive an even greater motivation for development and self-fulfillment.

Meet Olena Bezhenutsa, Assistant of our Barbus company President


Remote work may seem to be easy, but in fact it is harder than some of us could imagine😅 We asked our colleagues to share their experience of working remotely these days. Let’s take off 🙂 Meet Olena Bezhenutsa, Assistant of our Barbus company President.

📌 What are the changes you experienced when working remotely?
After I started to work remotely, only positive changes happened in my life. Here are some benefits:
➡️There is more time for work, I do not spend time to prepare for the office work, to come to office and then back home.
➡️The risk of contracting the virus in public transport is minimal, because there is no need to use it when working remotely.
➡️The only disadvantage seems to be working overtime. It is harder to keep balance between work and leisure, but, at the same time, my productivity has increased a lot.
📌What helps you be productive?
That is effective planning of my working hours and accurate performance of tasks.
📌 What helps you relax?
In such conditions, a cup of warm tea with milk and cinnamon helps me here.
📌 What do you think will change after returning to the office?
It will be difficult to wake up very early again.
📌 What would you wish your colleagues?
To all who feel discomfort when working remotely, I would recommend to clearly divide your working and free hours. Try to spend your free time with your family and friends and just relax. As an option, you may start a new hobby, play sports and enjoy some walks on fresh air.

In the face of COVID-19, we are seeing a viral spread of fake news urging to avoid contact with pets in order not to become infected with COVID-19.

Our partner, IDEXX, a global leader in veterinary diagnostics and veterinary practice software, has analyzed thousands of samples taken from dogs and cats and has detected no positive results in pets of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus strain responsible for COVID-19.

The results align with the current expert understanding that pets cannot be infected with COVID-19 or transmit it.

Stay positive and continue to take care of your furry friends. We believe that moments we spend with them can bring plenty of positive emotions that can help us during these hard times.
