At the 2013 ACVR meeting in October in Savannah, Georgia, our radiation oncologist/medical oncologist Dr. John Farrelly was named as an associate editor for the journal, Veterinary Radiology and Ultrasound.  This journal serves as one of the most influential sources of information for primary research on the use of radiation therapy for treating cancer as well as diagnostic imaging in all animals.

CVMA endorses Bank of America Merrill Lynch 

The Connecticut Veterinary Medical Association recently endorsed Bank of America Merrill Lynch on August 14th, as a provider of services to member practices.
