Partners for Healthy Pets

The American Veterinary Medical Foundation is proud to be home to Partners for Healthy Pets, a profession-wide initiative comprised of animal health companies, non-profit organizations, state veterinary medical associations and colleges of veterinary medicine. Partners for Healthy Pets' mission is to ensure that pets receive the preventive healthcare they deserve through regular visits to a veterinarian. As it's said, a yearly checkup is as important as food and love!

While the percentage of preventable illnesses is on the rise in our beloved pets, the percentage of America's 130 million cats and dogs who visit a veterinarian for a regular checkup is on the decline. Partners for Healthy Pets provides information and resources for veterinary healthcare teams to help promote preventive healthcare for all patients in their practices. The result is healthier patients and healthier practices!

Pet owners: Why A Checkup?

A yearly checkup is the best way to keep your pet as healthy as possible – because it’s much easier to prevent disease than to treat it. With regular checkups, your vet can spot problems at their earliest stages, when issues can often be addressed simply and cost effectively. So, whether your dog frolics at the park with all the neighborhood pups, or the closest your cat gets to the great outdoors is a sunny windowsill, every pet needs to see their vet – at least once a year!

Partners for Healthy Pets offers a website for pet owners that brings awareness to the importance of regular checkups for their pets and answers common pet owner questions about preventive healthcare. If your practice would like to include this website on your own homepage, feel free to do so!
