pet appreciation week June 2nd through the 8th 2019

Our pets cannot believe there is only one week to appreciate them 

How and why should you appreciate your pets? Let us offer some ways in which we appreciate our pets:

  1. Appreciation means Love!
  2. Appreciation means Understanding
  3. Appreciation means paying attention to your pets
  4. Appreciation means you should do something special for your pets.


What could that be?

  1. Offering a delicious treat.
  2. Taking them for an extra long walk.
  3. Tossing a ball.
  4. Rubbing your kitty’s belly.
  5. Giving your reptiles an additional helping of grubs.

You know what your pet loves — give them more of it!

Why should you appreciate your pets?

  1. They love you unconditionally
  2. They are cute
  3. They relax you
  4. They rock
  5. They’re smart
What can you do this week — and every day of the year — to appreciate your pet and thank them for just being them? The holiday was created in 1981 by the  American Veterinary  Medical Association.
