    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Amazing stories to warm the heart

    AMERICAN VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION
    Sandy Willis, DVM, DACVIM posted:
    Please take a look at the stories of four dogs, two cats and one horse who with their family veterinarian sought specialty veterinary care from internists, cardiologists, neurologists and oncologists boarded in the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM)
    Note particularly the quality of life these animals continue to enjoy despite potentially life-threatening diseases.
    Referral to a specialist starts with a specialty physical exam of the animal. Whether or not additional diagnostic tests and treatments are done, the owner receives answers to questions that may have regarding their animal's advanced disease.
    You can watch the whole presentation that took recently at the ACVIM Annual meeting or the shorter individual presentations.

    I really enjoyed these videos! I would encourage anyone who has a few free minutes to watch them and learn about some special animals and the folks who care for them.

    Which was your favorite?
