The voice of Alberta's veterinarians is now online.
EDMONTON, March 9, 2015 /CNW/ - Alberta's animal owners deserve a reliable source of veterinary information online. Too many pet owners and animal lovers rely on unverified information from unaccountable authors when they're doing online research. While they often mean well, these unqualified sources can offer false, even harmful information. We at the ABVMA recognized the need for an official voice of veterinary medicine for animal lovers online, and we responded. We are proud to announce the launch of our new website for animal owners in Alberta and around the world, albertaanimalhealthsource.ca.
The site features four main sections: livestock, pets, wildlife, and horses. No matter what animals you have or what type of relationship you have to them, the Alberta Animal Health Source will be able to offer you tips and comprehensive guides to improve your animals' overall health, happiness, and welfare. We encourage visitors to explore the site on their first visit to discover all the subjects we cover and the different types of resources we provide.
A great place to continue this exploration after looking at the four main sections would be our featured topics, which are visible on the homepage and throughout the site. The featured topics are created to address specific issues or needs as identified by some of our leading veterinarian members. These issues can range from pet care tips to matters of international biosecurity. Currently there are six featured topics, but we will continue to add more as we identify needs and uncover emerging issues in the world of animal care.
To keep up with all our new information and materials as they are added, we recommend following the ABVMA on Facebook and Twitter. These social media platforms are already an essential component of our public messaging, and we will be using them to draw attention and direct our followers to all of the latest veterinary news and information. Additionally, the Alberta Animal Health Source will be providing full articles and supplementary information to correspond with the issues we cover on our social media accounts.
By offering this comprehensive resource and unifying our online presence, we hope to empower animal owners everywhere to cut through the misinformation online and find reliable, veterinarian-approved information they can depend on to promote healthy animals, healthy people, and a healthy environment.
