What I like Most About VIN
  • In my point of view, VIN is the best opportunity to share, help and learn from colleagues around the world. VIN is the best place to keep all of us updated, to work with a great team that are always there to answer hard questions, helping on medical dilemmas and sharing victories and frustrations of the daily veterinary practice. More than being part of this team, I like the daily and grateful learning that makes me moving forward. All for pets! ;)
