OVC and OPSR Celebrate National Pet Week
The Orrville Veterinary Clinic, The Orrville Pet Spa and Resort and satellite clinics, The Akron Barberton Veterinary Clinic and The Seville Wadsworth Veterinary Clinic are celebrating the AVMA National Pet Week. National Pet Week is May 3-9, 2015. Always the first full week in May, National Pet Week is dedicated to celebrating the more than 200 million pets that enrich our lives each and every day. National Pet Week was created by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the Auxiliary to the AVMA to honor the many important roles pets have in our lives and to encourage responsible pet ownership. Whether companion, comedian, confidant or protector, our pets are always there for us and don't ask much in return. National Pet Week celebrates this bond and encourages pet owners to be certain they provide their best friends with all they need for a happy, healthy life every week of the year.
Celebration activities include a photo contest, special treats for our furry friends, prizes and information on laser therapy and other pet health topics. To enter your pet in the photo contest, email a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Photos can also be dropped off at either location. The deadline for entries is May 29,2015. Clients will vote on their favorites and then the winners will be posted in OrrViews. Visit the National Pet Week website www.petweek.org for information about how teachers can celebrate the week in their classrooms, information on veterinary careers, resources for pet owners and some fun and games.
