Proud to sponsor Animal Health Week!



Petsecure is the proud principal sponsor of Animal Health Week, which runs from Oct. 2 to 8, 2016. Animal Health Week, which has been celebrated for more than 30 years, is an initiative of the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA).

Each year, the veterinary community is encouraged to recognize Animal Health Week by drawing attention to an important health-related message. For 2016, that message is "One Health".

During Animal Health Week, the CVMA is reminding animal owners that by protecting the health of their pets, they're also protecting their own health, as well as the health of the environment. 

From the CVMA's Animal Health Week site:

  • The concept of ONE HEALTH involves groups of professionals, including veterinarians, physicians, and scientists, working together to attain optimal health for animals, people, and the environment.  
  • The health of humans, animals and ecosystems is interconnected. Keeping one healthy requires that all are healthy.
  • Everyone can contribute to ONE HEALTH for the betterment of health in people, animals and the planet.
  • The health of your animal can have an important influence on your health and global health.
  • Veterinarians play a critical role in ONE HEALTH as they manage the connection between animal health, human health and the state of the environment.
  • Responsible animal ownership that includes regular veterinary visits, vaccinations, parasite prevention, exercise and optimal nutrition protects the health of people and our global environment for ONE HEALTH.
