Pets are always there for us. Let’s be there for them.Dogs instinctually look out for their pack. It’s a survival method that’s hard wired into their DNA. Humans become part of that pack when they invite pets into their families. We take on the responsibility of protecting our pack. Right now, our pets have a problem, and they can’t speak for themselves, so it falls on us to speak for them.
What happens when the care our pets need doesn’t align with our ability to overcome the cost of that care? Too often, and without even knowing, we gamble with our pets lives.
But we have solutions, and we’d like to talk about the data and experience that will shed light on how we can tip the scale in our pack’s favor.
Join internationally recognized veterinarian and MightyVet founder, Dr. Steve Weinrauch, social media sensation and We Rate Dogs and Thoughts of Dog founder, Matt Nelson, and Dr. Casey Barton Behravesh, Director of CDC’s One Health Office for a live chat as they explore lessons learned and how we can make decisions today that will make differences tomorrow.
