Veterinarians and veterinary technicians around the country are open houses, dog washes, behavior seminars, and numerous other activities that can enrich the human/animal bond.

 “People really feel that their pets are part of their family and that the veterinarian is the “other family doctor”, said Dr. Michele Belisle.  “They are interested in health care and behavior issues that will prolong their lives together”. 

 Veterinarians are integral in assisting people understand what it is their pet needs.  Pets rely on us for annual checkup, proper dental care, exercise and lots of socialization, explained Dr. Belisle.
