National Pet Week celebrates the pets that enrich our lives and encourages responsible pet care every day of the year. Created by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the Auxiliary to the AVMA in 1981, it's observed during the first full week of May each year.
Every dog has a unique nose print with no two alike. Cats have 32 muscles in each ear. Cat whiskers are so sensitive they can detect the slightest change in air current. A dog’s sense of smell is 1000 times greater than a human. We love our animals!
