Verona Police Department Receives Veterinary First Aid Training for First K9 Officer.


VES/VSC had the privilege of welcoming Verona Police Department, along with the department's first K-9 Officer, Drea. One of our critical care specialists, Dr. Josh Smith presented a special veterinary first aid presentation to give officers additional knowledge and training to ensure K-9 Drea stays safe. Officers learned how to care for Drea in the event of a life-threatening situation until she can get to an emergency clinic.  

Want To Help Make A Difference in the Fight Against Cancer?


As part of a research study, VES/VSC Oncology is looking for volunteers (5 Labradors and 5 Golden Retrievers, over the age of 7 years) to donate 2 teaspoons of blood. The researchers are developing a blood test to detect cancer in its early stages in dogs, with hope of improving outcomes. Please email if your Labrador or Golden Retriever is healthy (does not have cancer) and is willing to help in the fight against cancer!
