Where would we be without veterinarians? After all, they play a vital role in the health and happiness of our pets. Are you considering a career as a veterinarian or are curious to learn more about your pet’s greatest champion? Read on!
The world needs veterinary professionals. Not just because our animals need doctors and caretakers but because of the type of people they are. They are selfless, caring, compassionate individuals who will stop at nothing to make sure your four-legged family member is okay.
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 put your pet’s best interests first.
Let’s be real – for many pets, going to the vet isn’t on their list of favourite activities. And, we humans can relate! Think about it. You may not love going to get your teeth cleaned, but if your dentist or hygienist has a warm disposition, it makes the uncomfortable experience that much easier to tolerate.
World Veterinary Day was created by the World Veterinary Association in 2000 to celebrate the veterinary profession and promote the amazing work that veterinarians do. This special day is held annually on the last Saturday of April, and for 2022, this falls on April 30th. World Veterinary Day 2022 celebrates the work that veterinary professionals and organizations are doing to help strengthen veterinary resilience while raising awareness of this important topic.
World Veterinary Day is an annual celebration of veterinarians and their unwavering commitment to animal health. It takes place on the last Saturday of April, so mark your calendar! It’s the perfect time to thank your veterinarian.
