Cattle Dog Publishing

Cattledog Publishing is the brainchild and legacy of Dr. Sophia Yin, a Veterinarian, Animal Behaviorist, Author, and internationally renowned founder of Low Stress Handling™. As a veterinary student at UC Davis, Dr. Yin began sharing, then publishing, her exceptionally well organized notes (her personal nerdbook) to help other students feel more confident in clinics.

The Nerdbook was an instant success, selling over 4,500 copies in the first year.

After her tragic death, CattleDog Publishing continued distributing Dr. Yin's works and Low Stress Handling training courses.

In 2020, Dr. Yin's trust donated the rights to the Nerdbook to the VIN Foundation. Proceeds from future sales will support VIN Foundation programs that help all colleagues thrive within the veterinary profession.

Dr. Yin's works (other than the Nerdbook) were purchased by Veterinary Information Network (VIN). VIN will be responsible for updating the Nerdbook and Dr. Yin's other works to ensure her legacy and mission to improve animal health and well-being live on.
