The veterinary team members are an essential part of your furry friend’s life, and World Veterinary Day is one of the special days dedicated to the superheroes who work arduously to give every animal the opportunity to live their best life. 

When is World Veterinary Day?

The World Veterinary Association (WVA) proclaimed every last Saturday of April as the World Veterinary Day to celebrate the outstanding work of veterinarians on society and animal well-being in every country. In 2020, this celebration will take place on the 25th of April.  

2020 theme of World Veterinary day

Each year WVA selects a theme to promote awareness and knowledge about different topics related to animal welfare and health. Some of the past themes were:

  • “Value of Vaccination” (2019)
  • “The role of the veterinary profession in sustainable development to improve livelihoods, food security, and safety” (2018)
  • “Antimicrobial Resistance—From Awareness to Action” (2017)

2020 theme is  “Environmental protection for improving animal and human health” to honor the work that veterinary professionals do to protect our planet.” 

Activities during World Veterinary Day include seminars, conferences, and events. There is also an award to a member of WVA who gives an exceptional contribution to the selected annual topic. 

Should you get your Veterinarian a gift?

At I Love Veterinary, we firmly believe that appreciation should be shown to all staff every day you visit the veterinary practice.

There are also special occasions such as the receptionist’s birthday or one of the veterinary nurses giving birth to her first child or particular holidays like World Veterinary Day, Veterinary Appreciation Day, and Veterinary Nurse Day. 

So, should you buy a gift for your veterinarian? It’s up to you, but we think a gesture of gratitude goes a long way!

World Veterinary Day is a wonderful date to buy a gift for your veterinarian or even give them a thank you card or share on your social media about their excellent service.
