The first CVP Weekly – A roundup of the latest small animal news

 

Welcome to the very first issue of CVP Weekly — a weekly roundup of the latest news from the small animal veterinary industry. Every week, we compile a rundown of the most important and vital news in the business and deliver it directly to your inbox. We don’t just cut and paste press releases. Instead, we search for real stories that directly impact your daily work life. You can expect to dig into national reports, information on regulatory issues, news on general animal health, examinations of new products and ideas in practice management.
