250 Years And Better Than Ever!

2011 is a special year for veterinary medicine.  It marks the 250th anniversary of the founding of the first school dedicated solely to teaching veterinary medicine. Although there are records of individuals providing animal care and treatment dating back as far as 1900 B.C. it wasn't until the opening of the first veterinary school in Lyon, France in 1761 that the veterinary profession was officially "born".  A lot has changed in the field since that time but one thing has remained constant... the compassionate and dedicated care your veterinarian offers your pets.

Further information about this worldwide event can be found by visiting the American Veterinary Medical Aassociation's official website.
