About VIN
October 30, 2017 (published)

Since 1991, VIN has been and always will be — for veterinarians, by veterinarians.

“VIN is more than a website, it is a community of colleagues.”

Much more than the sum of its features, VIN provides something no other organization or service has been able to. Simply stated, VIN:

  • Brings together veterinarians “world-wide” as colleagues
  • Provides instant access to vast amounts of up-to-date veterinary information
  • Gives instant access to “breaking news” affecting veterinarians, their patients and their practice
  • Connects veterinarians to colleagues with specialized knowledge and skills
  • Empowers our profession through the sharing of knowledge and ideas

The History of VIN

In 1990, before the advent of Windows and personal computers on every desk, Dr. Duncan Ferguson began answering questions on Quantum Computing, a small online Bulletin Board Service (BBS), which became America Online (AOL). This then evolved into the Pet Care Forum (PCF), and a few months later he invited Dr. Paul Pion to join him. In short, other colleagues were invited to join them and many of those pioneers are still on VIN as Consultants, Reps, Staff, and VINners.
