CVMA announces Animal Health Week Sept 30 - Oct 6

Animal Health Week is September 30 - October 6, 2018

Each year, through Animal Health Week, the veterinary community draws attention to an important health-related message. 

Animal Health Week

The CVMA is proud to have celebrated Animal Health Week across the country for more than 30 years.

From September 30 – October 6, 2018, CVMA will showcase the importance of vaccinations. The spread of communicable disease has not only becoming an increasing concern in the human population, but within the animal community as well. It is even more relevant given the increase in international travel and importation of animals from foreign countries. Furthermore, disease spreading parasite populations have grown and the regions in which they live have amplified. This year’s theme, Vaccines Save Lives!, is an opportunity to remind animal owners about one of the most important components of animal health – disease prevention. We will focus on prevention through immunization and remind animal owners to discuss the best vaccination protocols for their animals based on their breed, age, overall health, risk of exposure, and region in which they reside. A vaccinated animal is a happy, safe, and healthy animal
