Animal Health Week Proclaimed in Saskatchewan

Released on October 3, 2022

Today, Agriculture Minister David Marit proclaimed October 2-8, 2022, as Animal Health Week in Saskatchewan in recognition of the high level of care ranchers provide to their livestock, the veterinarian-client relationships that inform animal care decisions and the links between human and animal health and the environment.

"Saskatchewan producers are rightfully proud of the care they provide to their livestock, and Animal Health Week is a chance for us to learn more about it - both from them and from the veterinarians who do so much to support them," Marit said.

Animal Health Week has been an annual event for more than 30 years, proclaimed nationally by the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) and supported by the Saskatchewan Veterinary Medical Association (SVMA).

"The physical and mental well-being of the human population is intricately connected to the well-being of our animals and environment," SVMA Vice President Sarah Allin said. "Veterinarians are passionate about our central role and responsibilities supporting livestock producers, pet owners, government and environmental agencies. Together we are working toward the goal of One Health and sustainability."

This year's national theme is "Habitat Protection and Pandemic Prevention" which showcases the responsibilities of Canada's veterinary professionals within the national One Health community, which safeguards the health and safety of animals and, consequently, people and the environment. Industry organizations and veterinarians will also be using the week to discuss and raise awareness about animal health topics such as vaccinations and biosecurity.
