Trupanion to Present Free, RACE-approved Webinar – Guidance on COVID-19 Veterinary Community Response

Alongside the Association for Animal Welfare Advancement (AAWA), the World Small Veterinary Association (WSAVA), Shelter Medicine, and MightyVet, Trupanion will host a free, RACE-approved webinar on March 25 that gives guidance on a COVID-19 response in the veterinary community.

With many citizens either officially quarantined or self-isolating, pet owner confusion about their pets’ and their family safety is at an all-time high. It is important for the veterinary and shelter communities to understand how to proactively guide pet owners and those who foster pets appropriately in the current landscape.

The recorded webinar will also be available for the veterinary community after the initial live event.
