National Animal Safety And Protection Month in October

You love your pet and you only want the best for them. October is National Animal Safety And Protection Month, and our veterinarians at Glenwood Veterinary Clinic and Animal Clinic Of Council Bluffs are educating all of our pet parents on how you can keep your pet safe.

What Is National Animal Safety And Protection Month?

National Animal Safety And Protection Month is a time for veterinarians to promote measures to keep pets safe, such as microchipping (and updating microchip information), educating pet owners on pet-proofing the home, teaching pet owners about how spaying/neutering pets can help to keep them safe, and educating pet owners about the importance of preventative flea, tick, and heartworm medication.

Who Hosts National Animal Safety And Protection Month?

National Animal Safety and Protection Month is hosted by veterinary offices and animal shelters around the country. This month is a great opportunity for animal care professionals to educate pet parents about the best ways to keep their furry friends out of harm's way.

Why Is National Animal Safety And Protection Month Important?

All pet owners want their pet to stay safe, but safety concerns often get brushed to the wayside at appointments with the veterinarian. This month gives pet owners and veterinarians a reminder to discuss pet safety and make sure pet owners are doing all that they can to keep their pets safe. Many pet owners do not know the nuances of pet-proofing (such as cabinet locks, keeping certain plants out of the house), and this month is a great time for veterinarians to talk to pet owners about these important safety issues.
