The legend of the Easter Bunny

Helping our deaf clients access veterinary care for their pets

Since February 2020, all Healthy Pet Club veterinary practices have offered the SignVideo service to our deaf clients. This enables them to communicate with our veterinary teams on the phone or in person via a video call with a qualified British Sign Language (BSL) Interpreter. Having this service available means that we can support our deaf clients with looking after their pets, giving them confidence that their pets are getting the best care possible. Our ambassador Julie Beckett (right), who is a deaf Animal Nursing Assistant at Marske Vets, was a huge driver in getting this service off the ground. Julie continues to work towards giving deaf pet owners informative and engaging pet advice via videos in BSL. These cover a range of topics from learning about keeping pets safe from parasites to top tips on managing dental disease in pets. In the meantime, legislation for British Sign Language to be recognised as an official language in the United Kingdom is currently going through the final stages to be made law in England and Wales.

Do you know the story about how the Easter Bunny came about? As rabbits often give birth to large litters of baby bunnies (known as ‘kittens’), they became known as a symbol of new life. Some would also say that the Easter bunny is also responsible for the fun that comes with the festivities by laying, hiding and decorating the eggs in springtime.

It seems we have those furry friends to thank for the eggcellent chocolate egg hunts many families enjoy at this time of year.
