It’s the start of a new month and that means there are new promotions available at CAMC, and new events and holidays you can celebrate with your pets.

When it comes to cats and dogs, February is a very busy month, which means if you’re the type of pet owner who loves any excuse to make their pet’s day special, you’re sure to love what February has in store.

February at Companion Animal Medical Centre

February is National Dental Month and we’re celebrating by offering 50% off any dental cleaning and a free swag bag stuffed full of dental related goodies for your pet. This promotion is only available for pets who have previously visited CAMC before. Our monthly promotions are our way of saying thank you for choosing us to care for your pets.

This is one of our most popular promotions and spots fill up fast, but if your pet isn’t able to visit us in February, don’t worry. We’ll be repeating this promotion in August and you can schedule your pet’s appointment in advance by calling our office.

February the 2nd is Feline Friendly Day. Feline Friendly Day is held every first Thursday of the month at CAMC, so we can not only celebrate your feline companions but also raise awareness of our status as a feline friendly practice. If your cat’s exam is held on Feline Friendly Day, we also include a free feline fecal screening.

March’s Feline Friendly Day will be held on March the 2nd if you’d like to schedule your cat’s exam in advance.

Month Long Events in February 2023

Not only is it National Dental Month, it’s also Responsible Pet Owner Month, Dog Training Education Month, National Cat Health Month, and Spay and Neuter Awareness Month.

Celebrating these events may seem overwhelming but we think they work great together!

Nothing says Responsible Pet Owner like being proactive about your pet’s health by taking steps such as taking care of their dental health, scheduling them for regular exams, practicing new training, or having them spayed or neutered.

Week Long Pet Related Events in February

February the 19th to the 25th is National Justice for Animals Week.

National Justice for Animals Week was created by the Animal Legal Defense Fund, also known as A.L.D.F.

A.L.D.F works to advocate for justice for mistreated and abused animals and works with prosecutors to build stronger protections against animal cruelty.

Pet Related Dates for February

February the 3rd is Golden Retriever Day and Doggy Date Night.

If you’re the proud owner of a Golden Retriever, celebrate Golden Retriever Day by showing them off on social media or by giving them an extra treat. If you have photos of your dog you’d like to share with us, we’d love to see them!

With so many pet owners busy during the day with work and other obligations, it can be difficult to spend as much time with pets as we’d like to. Doggy Date Night was created to encourage pet owners to spend a little extra time with their dogs.

February the 14th is Pet Theft Awareness Day and Valentine’s Day.

One of the best ways to protect your pet from becoming lost or from becoming the victim of pet theft is by having them microchipped. If your pet is not yet microchipped, or you’ve moved and your pet’s microchip information is no longer accurate, consider scheduling an appointment.

February the 20th is Love Your Pet Day.

You probably feel like you already celebrate Love Your Pet Day every day of the year! Consider making your pet’s day extra special by spending extra time with them.

February the 22nd is Walking the Dog Day.

Regular exercise is crucial for keeping pets healthy.

If cold weather has impacted your pet’s ability to go on as many walks as they’d like to, try out a new toy or have a longer than usual play session to help your dog enjoy some extra exercise and bonding.

February the 23rd is National Dog Biscuit Day.

February the 28th is World Spay Day.

Having your pet spayed or neutered is a simple procedure that has many benefits beyond just preventing pregnancy and helping curb the amount of pets in shelters in need of loving homes. It can also prevent medical issues such as reproductive cancers and help drastically improve or prevent behavioral issues such as aggression and marking. If your pet is not yet spayed or neutered, February is a great month to consider scheduling an appointment.

We hope you are as excited for February as we are here at CAMC!
