New Delhi [India], Feb 10 (ANI): The National Veterinary Foundation (NVF), an organisation working for the welfare and well-being of animals aims to touch upon issues related to animal and pet health.

A government organisation founded by like-minded veterinarians, NVF conducts a national level one-of-its-kind event annually called Indian VETopia wherein experts from all over the country and abroad come and participate.

This year, the event, which is being conducted at Kingdom of Dreams, Gurugram, would be addressing some untouched issues about animal and pet health, including concerns about the diabetic and cardiac problems which hit pets as well.

The first day of the event, which began on Friday, saw a conference of the experts, followed by glamorous pet health show and an adoption drive for pets. Concluding the event, a pet walk for fun is going to be organised where owners can participate as well with their furry playmates.

The objective of VETopia is to uplift the veterinary society of India and bringing them at par with the latest technology and progress. PetExpo is organised behind the motive of informing and educating pet owners about the health issues of their pets, diabetic and cardiac issues in pets, as per Dr. R.T Sharma, Secretary of the National Veterinary Foundation.

Apart from the regular convention of the experts, there is going to be a pet health show where your gorgeous ones can participate and show off their beauty along with you learning a lot about their well-being and healthcare as well. Amidst all of these, there will be a free pet adoption drive where you can get yourself a cute friend if you are looking forward to owning one soon. And that's not all! A 5 km Pet walk for fun is also going to be organised which is going to be fun filled and one of its kind experience.

"Education in the terms of how well you can and you should feed your pet is still lacking in Indian society. Most of the population which is very well looked after is metro cities, tier II cities and a bit of satellite areas. We, through this unique programme are trying to throw some light and knowledge on the untouched areas like how to milk can create a problem to your pet and other interesting topics" added Dr. Umesh Karkare.
