Thank you, Jeff, and good afternoon, everyone. We appreciate you joining us today to discuss our strong second quarter financial results. Before I update you on our robust sales growth, strength of our diversified pet health and wellness business model and adjusted EBITDA improvement, I'd like to provide an update on the COVID-19 global health crisis and what we are experiencing across our operations. Susan will provide detail on our Services segment, and John will discuss our second quarter financial results in more detail. Finally, Susan, John and I will be available to answer your questions. First, I'd like to express my gratitude to all our team.
