  • Animal welfare policies and/or lowering barriers to care/spectrum of care initiatives

    Animal welfare policies and/or lowering barriers to care

    Alongside our policies that support continued animal welfare through training and CPD, we also offer the IVC Evidensia Care Fund. The purpose of the fund is to further support staff in providing the best possible care to assist pets and owners in difficult times. It is an integral part of our mission of bringing people together to help make animal care better.

    The pan-European fund will help pets suffering from serious conditions, by offering assistance to owners who are facing financial challenges. Additionally, this fund will help enhance the well-being of our staff by providing support and treatment options during an often challenging and immensely stressful decision-making process as shown in surveys conducted during the pilot.

    The pilot has been running across approximately 10% of practices between October 2020 and January 2021. This has proven to be immensely well received, coming to the aid of many animals, their owners and our staff who have reported a 95% improvement in their own well-being when managing these difficult situations. We predict that access across the group will empower our vets to save the lives of around 2000 pets every year.
