Join American Veterinarian® in Celebrating World Veterinary Day

Every day, veterinary professionals around the world provide invaluable services for pets, pet owners, and people everywhere who are passionate about the health and well-being of animals of all kinds.

Veterinarians don’t just save lives. They are animal experts, medical mavens, education enthusiasts, compassionate caregivers, community leaders, mindful mentors, and so much more. Leading up to World Veterinary Day on Saturday, April 28, American Veterinarian® is honoring everything veterinarians do for pets and their people by launching the hashtag #AVeterinarianIs.

And we’re encouraging all veterinary professionals and pet owners to participate!

Use #AVeterinarianIs to recognize yourself (go ahead, it’s OK!) or a veterinarian in your life. We will share all the videos, photos, and stories we receive.

  • Veterinarians: Share photos or videos of yourself doing something you enjoy, whether it’s running, reading, skydiving, being with loved ones, or doing what you do best—caring for animals.
  • Pet owners: Tell us how your veterinarian went above and beyond for your furry family member.

To let us know what “A Veterinarian Is” to you, simply complete the short form below or use #AVeterinarianIs in your own social media posts and tag us (@Am_Veterinarian on Twitter and American Veterinarian on Facebook).

Submissions will be collected until April 27, but American Veterinarian® and our sister publication, Veterinarian’s Money Digest®, will continue to use #AVeterinarianIs all year on our social media pages. Join us in recognizing veterinarians for all the amazing work they do day in and day out!
