Celebrity puppets promote pet vaccination at CVC Washington, D.C.
Attendees and their children filled the dvm360 News Zone to hear Mutt and Kitty's playful banter during three live interviews throughout the day. The furry candidates announced their positions on the most important issues in the veterinary world, such as belly rubs, cat naps and—of course—compliance with vaccination protocols.Mutt said they launched this campaign at CVC Washington, D.C., because most pets don't receive the vaccinations they need.
"And recently, vaccination rates have fallen even further. It's CAT-astrophic," Kitty said during a question-and-answer session.
The dog and cat duo want to work with veterinarians to deliver vaccination messages to pet owners across the map. Mutt and Kitty will host a series of events throughout the year, shaking paws along the campaign trail and raising awareness about the benefits of pet vaccination.
