Labor Day US Holiday
The VIN-VSPN offices will be closed September 3-September 5, 2016 for the US Labor Day holiday. We will have staff checking email and messages once a day through the holiday so responses may be slightly delayed. We wish everyone a safe holiday, and to those who are working in emergency clinics, we say thank you for being there.

The International Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society Symposium starts next week and VSPN will be there! Stop by and see Charlotte at the cybercafé or Lisa at the VSPN booth (booth 824) if you are attending. Many of our members and VSPN Moderators will be in attendance and speaking that week. We also wish good luck to those sitting for the ECC and Anesthesia/Analgesia VTS exams. We are looking forward to meeting members in Grapevine, Texas next week!
