Law changes offer pet owners improved protection says Alberta Government
A new law that takes effect on Feb. 1 will better protect pet and animal owners, according to the Alberta government. The
law changes will ensure vets and vet technologies follow rules on
advertising, illegal practices and continuing education, and force any
new animal care clinic to pass an inspection before opening. Dr.
Darrell Dalton, with the Alberta Veterinary Medical Association, said
in a release that the rules create stronger safeguards and increased
participation of vet technologists.
Gray, minister of labour, said in the same release that vets and vet
technologists play an important role caring for pets and animals. With
these changes, Albertans can be confident that their animals are
receiving the best care possible from veterinary professionals that are
properly trained, provide safe and competent services, and comply with
the highest professional standards,” she said.
