We are pleased to announce that the Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians 2016 conference proceedings are available to all VSPN members now! The OAVT generously allows VSPN to add their proceedings to our member library every year. This is a VSPN member benefit, and we hope you take a look at the notes from the wonderful speakers they scheduled this past March at their conference in Toronto, ON, Canada. You can find the proceedings in the VSPN Library in the Conference Proceedings category.
