World Animal Vaccination Day: prevention is better than cure

Veterinarians join forces on World Animal Vaccination Day to remind Europe’s 80 million pet-owning households on the importance of vaccination, a cornerstone of responsible pet ownership that protects the important relationship people have with their pets. (Brussels, 20 April 2018)

FVE President, Rafael Laguens, highlights how “Vaccination is an integral part of the prevention plan to keep your pets healthy. Vaccination is also important to prevent yourself and your family from zoonotic diseases, such as rabies."

The World Animal Vaccination Day falls directly ahead of European Immunisation Week, when the European region organises awareness-raising activities on the importance of vaccination for people’s health and well-being.
