Come celebrate with us!  Animal Health Week (September 30 – October 6) is a national public awareness campaign organized by the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA).  This year’s theme is “Preventive Veterinary Care…for the health of it!”

Preventive veterinary care involves all of the things we can do to prevent problems before they get a chance to start.  Preventive care includes vaccination, deworming, flea and tick control, professional and home dental care, diet, and wellness screening.  This week, we encourage everyone to consider how we can help you keep your beloved pets healthy.

This week if you pop in with your furry friend, he/she can have a photo taken with our I ♥ Animal Health Week sign.  We are having so much fun posting these photos on Facebook for everyone to see.  Also, we are currently holding a children’s colouring contest.  We have a great cartoon celebrating dog safety for kids to colour, and next week we will be announcing a winner.  The deadline for contest entries is Saturday, October 6th.

Please share your stories of ways that you keep your pet healthy!  We always love to hear from you, and look forward to snapping pictures all week.  If you have any questions about preventive health care for your pet, please call us at 893-2341!
