Partnership enables WSAVA to extend its support for global veterinary teams

WSAVA global veterinary teams

The Farmer’s Dog, which makes science-backed, veterinary-nutritionist-formulated recipes using fresh food for dogs, has been announced as the World Small Animal Veterinary Association’s new Diamond Partner. 

Under the Partnership, The Farmer’s Dog will support key WSAVA initiatives in 2024 and beyond, including the work of its Professional Wellness Group (PWG), which works to support the mental health and wellbeing of veterinary teams globally. 

The PWG recently launched the WSAVA’s first set of Global Guidelines on Professional Wellness. The Farmer’s Dog will also support the activities of three new working groups: 

  • The Non-clinical Working Group: this group is working to identify the non-clinical opportunities and threats facing companion animal practice globally and to provide resources, including continuing education, focused on the development of key skills, such as leadership, management and communication.
  • The Advancement of the Veterinarian-led team Working Group: this group is working to define the role and remit of individuals in the veterinarian-led team to ensure that teams operate productively and that all members enjoy a sustainable and rewarding career.
  • The Essential Standards for Companion Animal Veterinary Practice Working Group: this group is working to define the standards, systems and competencies that a companion animal veterinary practice requires in order to practise safely. Its work will culminate in the launch of a set of WSAVA Essential Standards for Companion Animal Veterinary Practice.

“The WSAVA was the perfect choice as our first veterinary association partner,” said Dr Ryan Yamka, vice president and head of R&D and Food Safety Quality and Regulatory Executive, The Farmer’s Dog. 

“We share the same goal: advancing the health and welfare of companion animals—and this includes good nutrition. The WSAVA is a respected force among veterinarians, and we’re excited to join as an industry partner in championing the wellbeing of veterinary healthcare teams and their patients.”
