The AVMA, established in 1863, is a non-profit association representing
more than 86,500 veterinarians working in private and corporate
practice, government, industry, academia, and uniformed services.
This is a discussion venue for the AVMA, members of the veterinary profession and members of the general public interested in veterinary medicine and animal health.
While this is an open forum and we welcome discussion, it's also a
family-friendly one, so please keep your comments and wall posts clean.
While it is our intention to never ban individuals from our page, if
content violates our policy, we reserve the right to remove that content
and may block the offending user. The following types of posts may be
removed, and the offending user may be given a warning or may be banned,
depending on the severity of the offense:
1) Personal attacks;
2) Graphic, obscene, explicit or racial comments;
3) Spam, solicitations and advertisements. This includes requests to
vote in a contest so the poster will win something, or solicitations for
monetary contributions. Requests to sign petitions will be addressed on
a case-by-case basis, and we reserve the right to remove the posts.
This also includes "lost pet" posts (we hope you get your pet back, but
our page isn't a clearinghouse of lost pet posts) and the "sign up for
our webinar" posts (again, we don't want to become an advertising
platform and clearinghouse for webinar solicitations);
4) “Bumping” content by repeatedly bringing existing or past issues to the top of the wall;
5) Posts that are blatantly off-topic.
Please disclose your relationship (employee, owner, etc.), if any, with
any companies you are promoting or mentioning in your post. Our sharing
of links, images or videos provided/maintained by others does not
constitute endorsement: the AVMA does not endorse products or companies.
This forum is not intended for providing diagnosis or
treatment recommendations regarding animal health problems. An online
resource is not a substitute for veterinary examination, and online
interaction is not a valid Veterinarian-Client-Patient Relationship
