An organizing committee is working on a proposal to create a 
veterinary technician specialty in education; input is needed from 
credentialed veterinary technicians as well as all stakeholders 
within the veterinary medical community!  

CTVT Project

Debbie Koenig, from the University of Cambridge, reached out the
FVTA to let us know about an ongoing Canine Transmissible
Venereal Tumor study.  The project is examining the genetic 
diversity, evolution, and worldwide distribution of transmissible 
cancers in dogs.  They can use your help!  More info...

Dragon is a 4 yr old guinea pig that joined our family when the person who 
originally owned him discovered her child was horribly allergic. He let's my son
carry him all over and even likes to take weekend trips with us. Dragon loves
attention and doesn't like to share his pettings with the dog. If we stop petting
him, to pet the dog, he will reach over and nip at the dog until we go back to
petting him. Don't worry, the dog figured it out and nudges his way between
our hand and Dragon.

Dragon does get curious which resulted in his getting stuck in the log. He was
walking around, with the log around his middle, but could not see where he
was going. My first thought was of Pooh and being stuck in Rabbit's house. I
decided I couldn't wait for him to lose weight so I freed him. He has never
crawled through that opening again.
