The VIN News Service was created in 2008 as the news media arm of the Veterinary Information Network, the largest online information service devoted to veterinary medicine. Since 1991, VIN has served as a community where colleagues connect to share medical cases and their experiences navigating life, business and the profession. VIN is for veterinarians, by veterinarians. The VIN News Service, like VIN, is advertiser-free, supported by the dues of VIN members. We can be reached at email@example.com.
The VIN News Service is an independent newsgathering service that examines issues of concern, importance and interest to the veterinary community, and communicates veterinary perspectives to the public. Our goal is to provide unbiased, accurate, insightful news reports and analyses that explore topics and viewpoints not commonly covered by other media outlets. We seek to be an indispensable source for trusted information relevant to the veterinary profession. The VIN News Service does not accept advertising or sponsorships. It is funded solely by the Veterinary Information Network, an online professional community with more than 65,000 members around the world.
