Global Vets at the OVMA Conference 2016

Last Saturday, members of the Global Vets 2016 team ventured to Toronto to attend the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association Conference to check out exciting new research and technology in the industry.

Pictured below are some of our Global Vets 2016 team members with AMD representatives, who generously donated various veterinary medical supplies for shelters and clinics that our teams are visiting.
