Two of our veterinarians, Dr. John Hordyk and Dr. Shannon Finn, are members of the professional association Small Ruminant Veterinarians of Ontario (SRVO), which allows access to a wide range of services and resources. Through this association our veterinarians are able to participate in high quality continuing education in which they learn up-to-date information on emerging research and industry trends.  We also have access to ongoing studies provided by the University of Guelph Animal Health Laboratory, such as the small ruminant mortality study, which we can provide to our producers.
