World Veterinary Day

Each year the World Veterinary Association (WVA) and the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) choose a topic to promote and educate about the important role of veterinarians on the matter.  Every last Saturday of April, the veterinary community celebrates the positive impact of veterinary medicine around the globe. 

The Veterinarian’s Role

Veterinarians don’t just take care of animals. They take care of people too. They often need to have tough conversations with pet parents about the health of their pets. Pet owners can be highly emotional when they go to the vet, especially if their beloved pet is sick. Stress, anxiety, fear, and even anger are just some of the human emotions that vets have to navigate on a daily basis. They do so by keeping a calm demeanour and ensuring to pur your pet’s best interests first.
