Practices that took part in the first ever Pet Allergy Week are being encouraged to keep sending in their PAW allergy tests, thanks to the overwhelming success of the campaign.
Two everyday superheroes admire their entry to the PAW waiting room display competition.
Avacta Animal Health launched Pet Allergy Week (PAW) in a bid to drive consumer awareness and encourage more people to talk to vets about allergens that could be affecting the nation’s pets.
Hundreds of UK practices signed up to be involved in the campaign, each of which received special PAW practice packs containing waiting room display materials and support literature.
PAW practices were also able to apply for subsidised allergy tests
during the week itself (June 8-14, 2015).
However, Avacta has been so bowled over by the amount of practices wanting to join in, the decision has been made to extend the deadline until July 3.
Commercial manager Hayley Booth said: “We are thrilled by the veterinary profession’s interest and support for the first ever Pet Allergy Week; we’re already looking forward to next year’s campaign.
“For now, we’re encouraging veterinary practices who signed up to keep sending in their PAW allergy tests – there have been so many coming through and we don’t want anyone to miss out. PAW might be over for this year, but the message is still strong and our work continues regardless.”
- To benefit from the discounted rates, practices should ensure the “JUNEPAW1” stickers are attached to their submission forms and send them in before July 3.
- Practices can also enter the best waiting room display competition until June 30 – further details of which are available at http://allergy.avactaanimalhealth.com/paw-signup/
