Today is world Vet Day!

Today is world Vet Day!

Whether you’re a cat person, a dog person, a rabbit person or a horse person, there’s one thing all animal lovers can agree on; the fantastic work carried out by veterinarians.

And everyone who supports Have-a-Heart is beyond thankful, how much our Namibian vets do for the Have-a-Heart dogs and cats! We appreciate every single minute our vets spend to help Namibia’s less fortunate dogs and cats, who, without the dedication each vet (along with a support network of volunteers) has towards animals, never would have a chance to receive veterinary care. It really means a lot to all of us and it is a fact: this work helps to make the world a better place!

Originally we wanted to thank each and every vet who is helping Namibia’s township animals, but there are so many great men and women helping, we were a bit afraid to forget someone…

Being a vet is a hard job, they love animals, they try to help, but they are also “only a human’, so please take the following to heart:

“Your veterinarian works hard, long hours. Every week is hard because he or she has probably had to put down two or three animals along the way. Your vet probably carries a lot of school debt, too, and may not do much other than work and sleep.
If you care about your vet, be a friend. Don’t be a difficult client. Don’t expect free treatment. Your veterinarian got into this business for the love of animals. You probably have that in common. Show some caring and compassion for your vet, just as your vet shows caring and compassion for your furry friends. Your heartfelt thanks might come at just the right moment. You never know.

So, on this special day, why not raise a paw, hoof or claw to say THANK YOU to our veterinarians?
Yes, we will, and we will also say it over and over again: THANK YOU!! All of you are heros!
