Celebrating Animal Health Week!

Animal Health Week is a national public awareness campaign organized by the CVMA and hosted by veterinarians across Canada. In the spirit of this year’s theme “Our Role, Our Responsibility”, animal care providers and veterinarians across Canada will be promoting the importance of animal health and welfare.

The CCAC seizes this opportunity to salute all veterinarians and the important work they do year-round to ensure the well-being of all animals, including animals used in Canadian science.
