HEROES FOR HEALTHY PETS®
We’re passionate about keeping pets healthy and free from infectious diseases
Dogs that are social or visit pet businesses, such as doggie daycares, groomers, boarding facilities and dog parks, are at risk for infectious diseases.
An infectious disease outbreak in a facility can be devastating to a business and its reputation. Heroes for Healthy Pets® was created to help veterinary and pet business professionals keep their facilities disease-free. The program provides best practices for preventative care, including strategic vaccination, cleaning and disinfection protocols, to help maintain disease-free facilities and keep pets healthy. Our goal is to present best practices for disease prevention and control.
