Public Health Launches "Healthy Animals, Healthy People" Campaign through Pet Stores

Thanks to a new collaboration with the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), CanHerp, PIJAC Canada, CVMA and other health agencies across Canada a new poster/postcard series, "Healthy Animals, Healthy People" has been developed as an education tool for pet stores to help their clients

This series aims to promote illness prevention when handling pets and their food, specifically addressing Salmonella.  PHAC encourages businesses to make use the the material to help educate their clients about safe handling practices.

Using this campaign is a great way to connect with your community by educating them about how terrific these pets are and how to handle them safely.  The fun designs look great as social media posts and hung up in store. Be sure to share them as far and wide as you like.  Send them along to:

  • Customers
  • Hobby Groups
  • Breeders
  • School Programs
  • Municipalities
  • Shelters and Rescues

Kudos to PHAC for spearheading this project and the partners for helping to make it happen.  Let's work together to ensure positive pet experiences for everyone.

  1. I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused .. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!
