CELEBRATE NATIONAL PET WEEK IN MAY 2000

FDA Veterinarian Newsletter March/April 2000 Volume XV, No II

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) celebrates National Pet Week on May 7-13, 2000. This year's theme, "Friends For Life" embraces the evolution of the pet from workhorse and yard dog to valued member of the family in the 21st century. Along with the AVMA, the Auxiliary to the AVMA, the American Animal Hospital Association, and the North American Veterinary Technician Assocation sponsor this event.

Special events and promotions are planned by veterinarians to educate the public in the importance of responsible pet ownership, emphasizing proper health care, nutrition, exercise, and behavioral training. The sponsoring groups offer posters, brochures, videotapes, public service announcements, bookmarks, and other specialty items for celebration of this 20th annual event. For more information about National Pet Week, please visit the AVMA's web site.

CVM is proud to endorse this worthwhile campaign.
