National Veterinary Association conducts tick awareness campaign

The Ottawa-based National Veterinary Association has begun an initiative to coincide with National Tick Awareness Month. The effort is being conducted in association with the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association and Merck Animal Health. It is intended to raise awareness of the risk of tick-borne disease and methods for preventing it in people and pets. The campaign includes in-clinic displays, social media content and web-based educational materials at <>.

“Though we have created many resources throughout the last eight years of the NTAM campaign, the recent survey highlights that gaps remain for owners when it comes to protecting their pets and themselves against ticks,” said CVMA president Chris Bell. “This year’s campaign focuses on building more awareness about the available tools and closing the gaps. We are in a unique position in veterinary medicine, in that while we are educating owners on the optimal protection for their pets, we also help them apply the knowledge they have acquired to protect themselves. We can help our clients outsmart ticks.”
