• Introducing Human-Animal Bond Certification

    Brought to you by HABRI and the NAVC.

    It turns out that all this time you’ve been taking care of animal health in your veterinary practice, you’ve also been helping your client’s health, too. That’s because scientific research has documented that having a pet does wonders for a human being’s health and wellbeing – everything from alleviating symptoms of depression and PTSD to improving heart health.
