What I like Most About VIN & VSPN

  • I love to learn and I love to teach and I believe knowledge is too great of a gift to keep to oneself. Communities like VIN and VSPN affords the opportunity for individuals to share their experiences and ideas with the veterinary community all over the globe. The end result is that we are all better equipped to serve the best interests of our patients and community.
