SEATTLE, May 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Veterinarians play a key role in helping our pets live long, happy and healthy lives. Trupanion, Inc. (Nasdaq: TRUP) and animal lovers throughout the U.S. and Canada will once again pause to say thanks on Veterinarian Appreciation Day on June 18.
Trupanion created the special day in 2015 to honor the tireless work and dedication of medical professionals in more than 28,000 veterinary hospitals throughout North America. Veterinarians dedicate countless hours and provide compassionate care to help animals thrive. A veterinarian is a great partner when it comes to pet health, and having a great relationship with a trusted veterinarian help pet owners feel empowered to give their pet the happiest, healthiest life one can provide. Each day they go above and beyond to treat pets for a variety of serious medical conditions, always staying current with new technologies and procedures for the finest possible pet care.
"Veterinarians play a tremendous role in keeping the pets we love healthy," said Darryl Rawlings, Trupanion founder and chief executive officer. "Our pets are members of the family. We owe it to them to take care of every medical need so they can live long and happy lives. Too often, we take veterinarians for granted because they are always there, day and night, to take care of our pets. On Veterinarian Appreciation Day, we honor these truly compassionate medical professionals and say thank you for everything they do."
Pet owners everywhere can show their support by visiting trupanion.com/veterinarian-appreciation-day and saying thanks on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+ and by tagging their veterinarian or veterinary practice in a photo and using the hashtag #ThankAVeterinarian. Trupanion's blog (trupanion.com/blog) will also feature special profiles on outstanding veterinarians throughout the month of June.
"We encourage everyone to use this occasion to celebrate the veterinarians we love who take care of the pets we love," added Rawlings.
