Breaking barriers to veterinary care
Webinar #21: November 30, 2022
Pet owners want to provide the best for their pets and veterinarians believe that all pets deserve some level of care. However, approximately 50% of pets do not receive even basic veterinary care. We examine the barriers to veterinary care and the changes we can make to better serve pets and their families.
Kate Atema (Director of Community Grants & Initiatives, PetSmart Charities) and Dr. Robyn Jaynes (Director of Veterinary Affairs, PetSmart Charities) speaks to their work examining the barriers facing some pet owners looking for veterinary care
Dr. Serge Chalhoub (Associate Professor (Teaching), Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, UCalgary) talks about his work as the coordinator of a community outreach-service learning program (UCVM-CUPS Pet Health Clinic) for disadvantaged Calgarians.
