Did you know that the lack of access to care is the most significant animal welfare crisis affecting owned pets in the United States? Millions of pets do not receive adequate veterinary care because the costs are simply beyond a family’s ability to pay.
Learn more about this important and complex issue in our upcoming webcast, Access to Veterinary Care: A National Family Crisis, on Tuesday, February 21, 2019 at 9PM Eastern. Hosted by the Director of Program for Pet Healthy Equity, Dr. Michael Blackwell, and the Assistant Director, Dr. Susan Krebsbach, they will address the scope of barriers to veterinary care faced by pet owners and the recommendations to address barriers.
They will also discuss AlignCare™, a research and development project of one health veterinary care and funded by Maddie’s Fund, as a viable way to improve access to care.
We hope you will join us for what is sure to be an illuminating conversation!
