Practices can register for the UK’s third Pet Allergy Week (PAW), set for 5-11 June 2017.

logoMore than 500 practices took part in the 2016 initiative, and organiser Avacta Animal Health is hoping to get a record number of practices involved in this year’s event, which is designed to raise awareness of allergies in cats and dogs.

Clinical signs

Avacta spokesman Gary Skipper said: “This year’s PAW campaign will focus on the clinical signs associated with allergies in cats and dogs, as well as what is involved in the diagnosis and treatment process.”

To help raise the PAW profile, Avacta has created a series of yet-to-be-named characters to help engage pet owners with the initiative and demonstrate the clinical signs associated with allergies in pets.
