As you enjoy cooler temperatures, we hope you will join us for a wide variety of webcasts.

From managing diarrhea in kittens, to making hard changes to lifesaving protocols for at-risk shelter dogs, we have something for everyone this fall. Each webcast will be available to view on-demand after the live webcast, so don’t fret if you can’t make that date and time (but still register so we can send you the link!)

Four of the webcasts are co-presented with the Association of Shelter Veterinarians and have been approved by the AAVSB RACE program and by The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement for continuing education credit.

Strap on that learning cap and sharpen those pencils; here’s our fall webcast lineup:
