Spread some love on June 18 for Veterinary Appreciation Day

Veterinarians and veterinary team members help our pets live long, happy, healthy lives. And sometimes a little “thanks” goes a long way.

Being in the veterinary industry is hard. These pet-passionate individuals often get into veterinary medicine with the goal to help as many animals as they can. They speak for those that can’t speak – in our language at least – and solve medical quandaries without being able to ask, “where does it hurt?” They offer compassion, advice, and care.

They say not all heroes where capes, and we firmly believe those who care for our pets are heroes walking among us. So we’re dedicating a special day to spread some #veterinarylove. Show your support and join in Veterinary Appreciation Day on June 18 by saying “thanks!” on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Tag your veterinarian and use the hashtag #veterinarylove in your post. Remember to thank them on your next visit, too!
