Earlier this week, AVMA’s Assistant Director of Government Relations Alex Sands spoke at a public IRS hearing on a new tax deduction for pass-through businesses under the recently enacted tax law. AVMA is asking the IRS to remove income limits on the deduction so all veterinary business owners can benefit from the new policy. Read our blog for more information:

So many of us are in this profession because we love helping animals. That doesn't change the fact that veterinary practices are businesses, and we simply can't offer free services for every single animal whose owner can't afford treatment. Despite that dilemma, stories like this abound, showcasing the compassion that thrives in our profession. If you'd like to be able to offer more charitable services at your clinic, consider enrolling in the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF)'s Veterinary Care Charitable Fund program. The program provides veterinarians with a way to offer low or no-cost services to clients who may otherwise be forced to surrender or euthanize their beloved pets, such as little Paco here. Learn more about the Veterinary Care Charitable Fund program at vccfund.org.

Don't wait for the hurricane to make landfall or the fire to spread before thinking of your disaster plan. Planning ahead is crucial to keeping your family safe. While making your disaster plans, don't forget your pets! Consider what you'll need to pack and prepare for them before evacuating, including food, water, medications, leashes, etc. For help creating a disaster plan for the whole family, see our resources for pet owners at http://bit.ly/2DEeGSA. #DisasterPreparedness
