Upcomming Animal Welfare Conference

I have been taking a break from blogging but plan to start again on a monthly basis!

The first thing I wanted to get out there is a upcomming conference that focuses mostly on cats and dogs and various welfare topics. I will be giving two of the lectures and am really excited about hearing the other talks. Please see below for the topic that are being presented. If anyone wishes to learn more..go to       www.awfnj.org

Next month’s post will be on an adorable patient of mine who just could not stop biting the walls of the owner’s home.
