World Veterinary Day isn't just about appreciating the invaluable service that our vets provide.
Whether that's delivering vital immunisations, getting our pups back on their feet when they're under the weather, or seeking advice about special diets, vets make a big difference to pet owners everywhere.
It's also a day when we can think about our pets' health, well-being, and happiness. Animals need to socialise, feel loved, and be stimulated to be as content in their minds as they are in their bodies.
Let's consider some great ways to celebrate World Veterinary Day, and mark the occasion by establishing some good habits.
Check Your Flea and Wormer Dates
Some of the most common reasons for a vet's appointment can be avoided by staying up to date with wormers and flea cats treatments. Check when you last dewormed and flea treated your pets and pick up a new treatment if you're overdue!
Have a Routine Groom
Giving your pet a shampoo, brush and general pamper can be as good for your mental health as theirs! A tick on a dog can be painful and a real nuisance, so it's also a great way to make sure there aren't any nasty's hiding under that fur.
Update your Health Insurance
We all know that vet treatments can be pricey, and having great insurance is a lifesaver if your pet gets poorly and needs intensive treatment!
You can also consider getting in touch with an organisation such as Vets for Pets. They offer expert advice around everything from toilet training to socialising, healthcare plans and vaccination services.
Send Your Vet a Thank You
Given how much we rely on our vets, it never hurts to say thank you. Show your appreciation with a card, flowers or a box of chocolates to let them know you're celebrating World Veterinary Day right alongside them!
