Celebrate Animal Health Week

Celebrate Animal Health Week

We’re proud sponsors of Animal Health Week, a national public awareness campaign organized by the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association, which runs from Oct. 1-7.

During the first week of October each year, veterinarians and veterinary hospitals across Canada recognize Animal Health Week by promoting animal health and responsible animal ownership.

Many veterinary clinics across the country host events like open houses, contests, offer clinic tours and organize various other fun ways to spread the word about the importance of good animal health.

This year’s Animal Health Week focuses on animal welfare and safeguarding the five animal freedoms:

- Providing adequate shelter

- Providing proper nutrition

- Allowing animals to exhibit normal behaviour

- Ensuring proper socialization

- Providing appropriate veterinary care

The Canadian Veterinary Medical Association acts as the voice of the Canadian veterinary profession in promoting animal welfare. Its goal of ‘One Health’ aims to ensure optimal care for animals, people and the environment.

Contact your local veterinary hospital to learn more about Animal Health Week events taking place in your community, or visit canadianveterinarians.net for more information
