 Client Information: 



Welcome to my library! I try to post on my website a great deal of veterinary medical information that I hope is useful to my clients and patients.

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) provides on-line to the public  informative, downloadable brochures that cover various topics in veterinary medicine. Our webmaster has reproduced below the links to those brochures that are in the AVMA website.

When you have finished accessing and downloading a brochure by clicking on one of the links below, please hit the back button on your Web browser to return to this website.

All of the brochures on this webpage require Adobe Reader software to be in your computer before you can open and read them.  You can download and install Adobe Reader by visiting Adobe Website or by clicking on the Adobe image below.

I hope you enjoy reading these informative brochures. For similar, informative information, visit my Information, Medical News, and Weather & Pollen Count webpages.
