CONGRATULATIONS to Drs. Elizabeth Brock and Thomas Linden of Northwest Veterinary Associates!
The VVMA is pleased to announce that they are the recipients of the 2017 Vermont Food Animal Veterinarian Education Loan Repayment Program (VFAVELRP).  The program is funded by the state of Vermont to support the repayment of veterinary student loans of food animal veterinarians willing to practice in underserved areas of Vermont.  More info

Please see this Health Advisory message that was distributed among a network of human health care providers this afternoon (11/17) regarding leptospirosis in puppies imported from Puerto Rico to Vermont. This is in anticipation that you may receive questions from families who have fostered these dogs or clients with pets that may have been in contact with these dogs.

Many thanks,

Natalie A. Kwit, DVM, MPH

State Public Health Veterinarian

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 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!
