World Veterinary Day
No matter if you are a cat lover, a dog lover, a rabbit person, or even a horse fan, there is one thing all animal lovers can agree upon: the amazing work done by veterinarians to care for animals.
The World Veterinary Congress was founded by John Gamgee, a professor at the Veterinary College of Edinburgh. The World Veterinary Association was founded in 1959 with the goal of promoting animal welfare and health.
The World Veterinary Association created World Veterinary Day in 2000 to promote and highlight the lifesaving work of veterinarians all over the world. Each year, the day falls on the last Saturday of April.
Every year, a new theme is selected to help pet owners remember the importance and ways vets can help.
Participate in various activities to observe and celebrate World Veterinary Day. These are some ideas to get you started:
To show your appreciation, you can raise a paw or hoof to thank the staff at your local vets. You can send a thank-you card or an email to thank them. You can also leave a positive review on Yelp or Google about the veterinary office.
Remember that veterinarians help to protect and secure those who are unable to speak for themselves. So remember how important they are to your pet’s life!
This is the time to make sure your pet’s health is maintained. To make an appointment with a local veterinarian or to check their website, call or log on to their website.
A great way to show your appreciation to a vet is to make a donation in their honor to the animal charity of their choice. You might consider donating to your local shelter, pet rescue center or guide dog training centre.
These are some ideas for charities you could donate to:
People who own pets are welcome to participate in various events put on by their local veterinary clinic. Many veterinarians and their offices will host events to promote participation and awareness of World Veterinary Day. Check online to find out what’s happening in your area.
You can celebrate Veterinary Day with your pet by purchasing them a treat or a toy. This will show you care about their health and appreciation for the work that veterinarians do. The veterinarians will be delighted to hear that your pets are being taken care of on this special day. Make sure they have healthy teeth and bodies!
