We have created this blog categorization system as a way to organize and preserve the daily blogs written about our farming life. We hope you find this categorization system helpful.

The following blog entries are all related in some way to the topic of veterinary services. They may cover any one or more of the following topics:
emergency medical services
acute health issues and treatment
chronic health issues and treatment
holistic and alternative treatment options
livestock veterinary services
rural veterinary services

Or they may simply be essays about some aspect of rural and/or livestock veterinary services. We hope you find something useful here, or at least some pleasant reading.

If there is some way we can improve our archiving system, please Contact Us and we'll take your recommendations into consideration.

Enjoy!
