Still Donations are coming in....Thank you Amatheon!!!

http://www.amatheon.com/

So many organizations heard about our BMOW Food Drive and reached out to us to see how they could help. One such organization, Amatheon Parmaceuticals is a wonderful example of this. As a product provider of the VCA HAH, they saw our efforts and wanted to help. By launching their own collection site within their company they delivered a tremendous donation of food to our doorstep just after the Christmas holiday. 
Founded in 2002, Amatheon is the leading Cross-Over Medication® provider in the nation. It is their chief goal to bring both the veterinarian and consumer a cost effect and FDA approved variety of medications to be used for animals. Cross-over Medications® (Human Drugs used in Animals) has created the largest short supply list of the FDA’s history. Amatheon and its affiliate, NextSource Biotechnology are working together to help the companion animals gain back those drugs in a secure FDA approved use for both humans and animals.  
One of their primary goals for this upcoming year is to involve their company with local veterinary practices to establish relationships and help our furry friends throughout the year. 
"We want to orientate ourselves to serving the public, thus demonstrating a commitment to the community by involving our company in services and volunteer activities.  We know this donation is just the beginning of Amatheon’s future involvement in our community. We can change the minds of many with these acts of kindness."
  
The VCA HAH is very proud to partner with Amatheon in community and in business.

  1. I am an absolute animal lover. My local place has saved me a few times in absolute emergencies. I should say that they have saved my dog. Anyway, your article got me thinking about donating to my local veterinary hospital. Do all places accept donated help?

    1. That is a great question! I do not know for sure but what I can speak to is this: Although we collect for this particular organization, we are generally not set up for donations. Our practice always welcomes blankets, towels and newspapers for in-house use and we accept monetary donations for specific patients that are fundraising. However, some practices have all sorts of programs set up for monetary contributions and or community service.

      It is certainly worth asking your Veterinarian. Perhaps- as do many of our Doctors, they specifically work with an organization outside of the practice that you may identify with.

      The bottom line is, there is always need. Whatever you do to help will make a difference in the lives of a four-legged family member!!

      Thanks for being a part of the conversation!!

  3. Having animal hospitals around are a great thing for us as pet owners. They provide relief and service for our pets when the need arises. I know that if my dog ever gets hurt or is feeling sick, I'll take them to the animal hospital. http://swfveterinaryspecialists.com/w/emergency-clinic/
