Veterinary Appreciation Day

Celebrating Veterinary Heroes Today & Everyday

Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear scrubs covered in pet hair.

Trupanion established June 18 as Veterinary Appreciation Day to celebrate and honor the invaluable contributions of veterinary professionals everywhere. We recognize the significant role you play in providing care and support to pets. Through Veterinary Appreciation Day, we celebrate your expertise, compassion, and the profound impact you’ve had on the lives of pets and their families everywhere. Thank you for saving the world, one pet at a time.

Your efforts do not go unnoticed, and this Veterinary Appreciation Day, Trupanion is proud to introduce our "truthankyou" initiative. With a heartfelt note, memorable picture, or a video message, pet parents can express their appreciation for you—their veterinary heroes. Follow along as Trupanion highlights these stories of gratitude all year long on Facebook and LinkedIn!

Thank you, WAVES Veterinary Hospital!
So grateful for the team at WAVES Veterinary Hospital. They took my boy in right away and kept me updated the entire time through his care and surgery. Knowing he was being well cared for made it easier to get by without him home. Thank you WAVES team!

Thank you, Veterinary Emergency Group (Georgetown)!
Thanks for taking such good care of my puppy, Bella the other night. Our first trip to an emergency vet was scary for us both… but your compassion and teamwork made a difference. She’s better now, and so am I.

Thank you, Western Canada Veterinary Eye Specialists!
When I brought Tank in for his cataracts surgery, I felt comfort in knowing he was in such good hands. The team has been welcoming, empathetic, and is always available to ease any concerns. It's been very emotional watching him regain his ability to see, and I know that this experience is going to give him that new puppy energy my old man has inside!

Thank you, Animal Allergy & Dermatology Center of Indiana!
Every time I bring my crazy Elsie girl in, they are always the sweetest. They happily accept her hyper wiggles and barks. Everyone is so great with her! They take the time to let her calm down and give her a ball to keep her distracted.

We are so thankful and appreciative of their patience, professionalism and the affection they showed Doug.

Thank you, Animal Emergency Hospital!
My dog stopped breathing, and when we finally made it to the hospital, there was no hesitation. They just took him in immediately and saved his little life. I am so beyond grateful and thankful. They communicated with me the entire time despite being so busy. You are all amazing! Thank you for looking after my baby.
