Make an Impact with the V.E.T. Fund
Dr. Jeff Smith wrote a powerful Letter to the Editor this month about the Veterinary Emergency Treatment Fund. This fund was established by Dr. Jeff Smith in 2012 with the belief that the bond that forms between a person and their pet is immensely beneficial and is worthy of preserving regardless of the financial situation.
