We Missed World Veterinary Day 2020!!!

Cody and I are appalled that we missed World Veterinary Day (which we didn't find out until now, falls on the LAST SATURDAY IN APRIL).

While we are grateful for ALL that Veterinarians and their staffs do, this year probably more than ANY YEAR we are extremely grateful for all that our Veterinary practice (DePorre Veterinary Hospital) is doing to help keep our pets safe and healthy while we remain on Corona Virus lockdown.

From "virtual text chats", through the Anipanion app ("telemedicine"), to curbside appointments, to still handling phone calls and questions with caring, professionalism and love. WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR ALL they are doing to keep our pets healthy while utilizing SAFE actions to do so.



FROM AVMA.ORG: The theme of World Veterinary Day 2020, which falls on April 25, is “Environmental protection for improving animal and human health.”

The WVA created World Veterinary Day in 2000 as an annual celebration of the veterinary profession, taking place on the last Saturday of April. Starting last year, the WVA has partnered with Health for Animals, the global animal medicines association, on the World Veterinary Day Award, which honors one WVA member’s activities related to the theme.

Details about World Veterinary Day and the World Veterinary Day Award are available at the World Veterinary Association website.

  1. Veterinarians are in such a tough place usually, caught between infirm pets, and humans who expect miracles. During this pandemic, they are going everything they can, and I respect and treasure them all!

  5. I am thankful for our vet. I am especially thankful she is still letting pet parents in to the exam room as so many make you wait in the car. XO

    1. for dogs pet parents still have to wait in the car. For cats, the pet parents can come into the exam room ONLY until they come to examine the kitty, then the pet parents have to go to the car :( We haven't been there other than to pick up Dakota's meds but Cody MUST get in because of his thyroid issues. We already postponed it from April 6th and we don't want to wait much longer :(

  8. Our Vet is very special, too...and since I was working April 25th, I missed it too...I Miss lots when I work!
    I wish I could say I miss Covid19...hopefully soon...but of course I will NOT miss it one bit!

    We are all well, and we sure hope you are and will stay well. Now even if I had time I can't even travel to see friends...let alone my family...sigh...

  11. We're always grateful for our veterinarians. Most people don't know how much veterinarians are also involved in ensuring human health - maybe that's one positive that will come of this covid-19 disaster.
