World Veterinary Day

World Veterinary Day (WVD) is celebrated on the last Saturday of every April. This year World Veterinary Day will be observed on April 28. World Veterinary Day created to promote and highlight various aspects of the work carried out by veterinarians all over the globe. You may love a dog, cat, or a horse or other pet animals but all the pet animals will agree one thing in common that all their lovely pets are healthy because of the veterinarians. A veterinary sometimes called as a vet, is a professional who treats injuries, disorders, and diseases in animals. World Veterinary Day is dedicated to these veterinarians for the fantastic work they do to keep your pets healthy.

As a veterinarian and lover of animals, I feel the time is now to stop the practice of horse soring for good.” – Ted Yoho

History of World Veterinary Day

World Veterinarian Day (WVD) was created by the World Veterinary Association (WVA) in the year 2000 to highlight the wonderful lifesaving work carried out by the veterinarians around the world. In the year 1863, i.e. approximately 150 years ago Dr J. Gamgee, a Professor of Anatomy and Physiology at Edinburgh, The Dick Veterinary College convened a 1st International Veterinary Congress. This initiative has today grown into the World Veterinary Association (WVA). The World Veterinary Association represents and unites the worldwide veterinary profession. WVA is the umbrella organisation for global associations of veterinarians working in various areas of veterinary medicine. The mission of WVA is to reassure and promote animal welfare and health and global public health, through developing and promoting the veterinary profession, the veterinary medicine and also private and public veterinary services.The WVA pursues the ambition of Dr J. Gamgee to bring all the veterinarians around the world together, to share ideas and to join them all together for the development and advancement of veterinary medicine. The main aim of World Veterinary Day is to raise awareness about animal health and welfare so every year a different theme is selected by the WVA and OIE (Organisation for Animal Health) and these themes help the pet owners to recall the importance of various aspects of animal care and how veterinarians can help. The theme of WVD in the year 2017 is “Antimicrobial Resistance.”
