Got a Pet? Get a Vet! Getting involved & 2018 contest
Every year, the Ontario SPCA takes a month to share why getting a veterinarian once you have a pet is so important. That month is here!
May is Got a Pet? Get a Vet!™ month! The Ontario SPCA, in association with the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA) and other participating SPCAs and Humane Societies across Canada, is encouraging pet owners to start that relationship today.
Prevention is key to helping your pets live long and healthy lives. Scheduling regular visits with your veterinarian can help detect health problems earlier and treat them sooner. Having a relationship with your veterinarian also means that if your pet requires emergency treatment, you have someone who knows your pet and their history.
Veterinarians provide many services, including but not limited to:
- Early disease detection
- Prevention of dental disease
- Spaying and neutering
- Nutritional counselling
- Regular vaccinations
- Addressing behavioural concerns
- Flea, tick and parasite prevention
- Pet identification
You can get involved by getting a veterinarian, or if you already have one, sharing the message with others using #GotAPetGetAVet ! You can also enter our contest …
We want to help recognize local veterinarians and their staff who go above and beyond to provide excellent care for pets in their community.
From April 23 to May 18th, we want to hear from you! Submit your favourite veterinary clinic for the 2018 “Got a Pet? Get a Vet!™ Award” and then encourage friends and family to vote for the winner.
