November 3 is One Health Day

One Health Day November 3rd

Did you know that your health is connected to the health of animals and the environment? This is the idea behind the One Health concept, an approach to public health that aims to improve health for all by recognizing that human, animal, plant, and environmental health are closely connected. November 3 is One Health Day, a global observance to promote awareness of the One Health approach.

Pet owners play a role in One Health

A One Health approach involves many experts working together to improve the health of people, animals — including pets, livestock, and wildlife — plants, and the environment. Pet owners can also play a role in One Health by practicing healthy pet habits to prevent the spread of diseases between people and animals.
