Petplan pet insurance has teamed up with the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), the North American Veterinary Community (NAVC) and the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) to create the first ever “Veterinary Team Appreciation Week.”
“Created to celebrate the passion and dedication veterinary teams bring to their work, Veterinary Team Appreciation Week is the first event to recognize the entire team in practices and hospital clinics – after all, it takes a village to keep pets healthy!”
“We are so inspired each year by the nominees for Petplan’s Veterinary Awards that we decided to do something to give back to these extraordinary professionals,” Natasha Ashton, co-founder and co-CEO of Petplan, said in a press release. “Whether it’s the veterinarian who saves a pet’s life or the practice manager whose compassion provides comfort during a difficult time, each member of a pet’s care team plays an essential role — and they all deserve our gratitude and recognition.”
During the week, Petplan will be reaching out to veterinary practices all over the country to thank them for their hard work and dedication. They will also be hand-delivering treats to veterinary practices near their Philadelphia headquarters.
