National Pet Week - May 7-13, 2017
 
Everyone loves their pets but not everyone is aware of what their pet needs from them to keep them happy and healthy long into their pet's senior years. Leading veterinary experts in animal health, welfare, and behavior invite you to take each of the essential actions highlighted during National Pet Week® that are vital to achieving a Lifetime of Love.

Sunday
Choose well, commit for life

Select the pet that's right for your family's lifestyle, and make a commitment to that pet for its life. Even if you have already welcomed a pet into your home, your veterinarian can help you better understand the social and healthcare needs of your individual pet.

Monday
Socialize now. New doesn't have to be scary.

Learn about how to appropriately prepare your pet to enjoy a variety of interactions with other animals, people, places and activities. Everyone will be more comfortable!

Tuesday
Exercise body. Exercise mind.

With an estimated 52.7% of dogs and 57.9% cats in the United States considered overweight or obese, and humans plagued by this issue as well, the AVMA encourages pets and their owners to get regular exercise—together! This not only improves cardiovascular health, maintains a healthy weight, and supports good mental health for both owner and pet, but it strengthens the human-animal bond. For tips on walking, running, or starting another exercise program with your pet, visit avma.org/Walking.

Step it Up! is Surgeon General Vivek Murthy's new initiative to promote walking. The program encourages brisk walking to reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes in people. Dog owners know there is no better motivator for a walk than their canine companion. Recent scientific studies show that dog owners may get more exercise and are less likely to be obese than those who didn't own or walk a dog. Owners that walk their dog also had greater mobility within their homes. Other studies have shown that all pets, not just dogs, have been shown to lower heart rates and blood pressure as well as promote quicker recovery times from stressful events.

Wednesday
Love your pet? See your vet!

Everybody love's their pet, yet 53.9 percent of cat owners and 48.6 percent of dog owners do not take their pet to the veterinarian unless it is visibly sick or injured. Pets often hide signs of illness. Regular check-ups are vital to catching health problems early. Not only can early treatment mean better health for your pet, it can also save money.


Thursday
Pet population control: Know your role.

Do your part to prevent pet overpopulation. Talk to your veterinarian about when you should have your pet spayed or neutered. Avoid unplanned breeding through spay/neuter, containment or managed breeding. To learn more, visit the AVMA webpage on spaying and neutering your pet.

Friday
Emergencies happen. Be prepared.

Include your pets in your family’s emergency plan. The AVMA offers a step-by-step guide to assembling emergency kits and plans for a variety of pets and animals.

Saturday
Give them a lifetime of love

Thanks to better care, pets are living longer now than they ever have before – but as pets get older, they need extra care and attention. Regular veterinary examinations can detect problems in older pets before they become advanced or life-threatening, and improve the chances of a longer and healthier life for your pet. Visit the AVMA's special page for senior pets to find out what is 'normal' and what may signal a reason for concern about an aging pet. Contrary to popular belief, dogs do not age at a rate of seven human years for each year in dog years. Download the AVMA PetsAgeFaster chart to check how your pet's real age compares with yours.

Brilliant Optical Illusions Inspire Adoptions
 
There's no wrong way to inspire potential pet owners to adopt their next animal companion, rather than shop. But the more attention-grabbing method of spreading that message the better.

To promote a recent pet adoption event, the Mumbai, India-based group World For All commissioned a visual campaign aimed at encouraging families to find a place in their lives for a needy animal — and what resulted couldn't be more brilliant at doing just that.
The images are optical illusions, showing people framed in such a way that they form the shape of pet in the empty space between them, along with the simple tagline:
"There's always room for more. Adopt."

 


While the creativity behind these captivating images, from Amol Jadhav and a team from McCann Worldgroup India, is certainly deserving of all the positive attention it's gotten from a design perspective, it's also achieved the goal of its message beyond all expectations.

This year attendance at the adoption event was boosted by 150 percent over last year.
"The campaign increased foot traffic owing to its large visibility and the interest people took in the image," World For All founder Ruchi Nadkarni told The Dodo. "The event saw 42 adoptions and will now be a yearly event at the college owing to the phenomenal success of the event and 42 adoptions in one day."
Now that's creativity put to good use.
