CONGRATULATIONS TO DRS. ELIZABETH BROCK AND THOMAS LINDEN!
The VVMA has awarded $16,500 in grants from the Vermont Food Animal Veterinary Education Loan Repayment Program to Drs. Brock and Linden of Northwest Veterinary Associates. These veterinarians commit to a year of service in food animal practice in underserved areas of the state in return for the award which is used to pay off their student loans.

104 Shelter and Rescue Animals Spayed and Neutered at No Cost
The Vermont Veterinary Medical Association, PetSmart Charities® and the Vermont Humane Federation joined together to train veterinarians on the latest in high-volume spay/neuter techniques the weekend of October 8-9 in Montpelier, VT. Veterinarians and technicians learned helpful techniques on Saturday and 104 cats and dogs were spayed or neutered by veterinarians at the wet labs on Sunday!
The VVMA has joined in an effort to increase the professional and community awareness of the need for safe use, safe storage and safe disposal of prescription medications. In partnership with the Bennington County Prescription Drug Task Force, an information packet created specifically for the veterinary profession was mailed in August to Vermont veterinary clinics, included in the VVMA e-newsletter, and put on our website. It also includes the VVMA’s Veterinary Practice Guide to DEA Regulations. Check it out and join us in our goal of making sure the veterinary profession is aware of how to prevent substance abuse!
