Henry Schein, Inc., wants to recognize the efforts of large animal veterinarians, so they are launching the inaugural National Livestock Veterinary Day on October 12.
“Livestock veterinarians travel great distances and work long hours to protect the health of animals that play a critical role in our local communities and the nation as a whole,” said Fran Dirksmeier, president of Henry Schein Animal Health, North America. “From the work these animals perform, to the food, milk, and other products they provide, livestock health is deeply connected to our own. We at Henry Schein Animal Health created National Livestock Veterinarian Day to thank these dedicated health care providers for all they do to protect the health of animals upon which humans so heavily rely.”
The company has created a webpage dedicated to National Livestock Veterinarian Day, which contains links to blog posts covering a range of issues related to livestock health and veterinarian-client communication, as well as a white paper that discusses the opportunities and obstacles facing livestock veterinarians.
In addition to the webpage, Henry Schein Animal Health will host a social media campaign on October 12 in support of livestock veterinarians, and educating its audience on the resources available for livestock veterinarians and their clients. People are encouraged to join the conversation using the hashtag #LivestockVetDay.
