Spread some love on June 18 for Veterinary Appreciation Day

Veterinary Appreciation Day™ was created by Trupanion in 2015. This special day was founded to recognize veterinary professionals and the wonderful work they do. From the front desk to the exam room, veterinary teams offer compassion, advice and care for our furry family members.

This year, we’ve partnered with MightyVet, a non-profit providing continuing education, mentorship and other resources to support veterinarians in their career and well-being. Together, Trupanion and MightyVet are honoring veterinary team members in celebration of this special day.

“Our hope is that pet owners will thank their veterinary team throughout the year,” said Darryl Rawlings, Trupanion founder and CEO. “But Veterinary Appreciation Day offers the animal-loving community the opportunity to come together on a single day to show their appreciation to the compassionate veterinary professionals dedicated to helping their pets live the happiest, healthiest lives possible.

Dr. Steve Weinrauch, veterinarian and founder of MightyVet, agrees. “We know first-hand how the work can often be challenging and thankless, and we want all veterinary team members to know that we appreciate everything they do.”

Pet owners everywhere can show their appreciation by posting photos and stories about their veterinary team on Twitter and Instagram, including the hashtag #veterinarylove. See all the #veterinarylove and your own story shared below.
