Animal Care
In recent years, companion animals (i.e. pets) have become an increasingly familiar presence in our society. This trend has been accompanied by a continued shift toward pet owners viewing their pets as members of the family, instead of, for example, just as animals bred for agriculture. In light of this, TRVA and Fujitsu view veterinary medicine as being different from the conventional approach of simply treating sick animals. Rather, it is a new type of medical care for animals that are an important part of human life. This is referred to as "animal care."

TRVA, established in February 2011 in the Jonan area of Tokyo, is centered on the voluntary efforts of members of the Tokyo Veterinary Medical Association. The TRVA After-Hours Emergency Veterinary Care Center and Secondary Veterinary Care Center were established as the organization's base in Fukazawa, Setagawa Ward. At the TRVA After-Hours Emergency Veterinary Care Center, an on-call doctor responds to after-hours emergency cases, and utilizes a system that returns medical records to the pet's primary veterinarian. By coordinating medical activities with primary veterinary hospitals, pet owners and their pets receive 24/7 support that allows them to live together without worry.
