We give thanks each and every day here for the involvement and support of our local veterinary clinics. A special thanks to our kennel veterinarian, Decorah Veterinary Clinic, for always being available for questions and care. All of the clinics in our region are exceptional.
World Veterinary Day is an opportunity to celebrate the contributions of veterinarians to the health of animals, people and the environment.
The veterinary profession is a profoundly rewarding pursuit. Safeguarding animals against illness is a passion for most veterinarians. Veterinarians are called upon to ensure their patients have a voice and an advocate for their welfare.
Veterinarians are aware that this burden can be physically and mentally taxing. Stress, burn out, and other health issues have risen in recent years. The veterinary community needs your support to help battle these issues. Please thank your veterinarian. It may be the gesture that helps them get through the day.
