The State of Pet Health® Report
This annual report delivers a one-of-a-kind comprehensive analysis of national pet disease trends. It captures and analyzes medical data from the nearly 2.3 million dogs and 470,000 cats seen at Banfield hospitals across the country. Our goal is to provide pet owners and veterinarians a unique view into common and chronic pet health conditions.
Partners for Healthy Pets
One way we demonstrate our commitment to preventive pet health care is by supporting the American Veterinary Medical Foundation Partners for Healthy Pets initiative. As a founding member of this organization, we devote resources to educating pet owners and veterinary teams on the importance of proactive disease management. The result: a healthier and happier pet population and a healthier profession.
Support for Students
Mentoring the next generation of veterinarians is why we support the Student American Veterinary Medical Association and the Veterinary Business Management Association. Along with financial sponsorship of these two student groups, Banfield veterinarians also participate in events to help students hone their medical and communication skills as they prepare for practice.
