A Message From the President
September/ October 2016
Fall is on its way. The kids are back in school. As I look back on the summer I wonder where the time went. I had so much planned this summer, but the months flew by so quickly I don’t think I accomplished even half of the items on my to-do list. We did make the time for our family vacation, as I suspect most of you did this summer. The vacation time is great, but it never lasts as long as we want.
Unique Program Improves Quality of Care for Shelter Animals

When Kansas State University’s CVM decided to take its shelter medicine rotation on the road last May, they never imagined how quickly demand would grow—both from students and participating shelters. The Mobile Surgery Unit, a 32-foot pull-behind gooseneck trailer with the Powercat logo on its side, celebrated its first anniversary on May 9. Since hitting the road, it’s visited a dozen shelters on a regular basis saving lives and money, and giving fourth-year veterinary students a unique experience.
