Welcome to the TAHC Vet Corner.
As your state veterinarian, I hope you will find this special section dedicated to your needs and interests a beneficial and helpful resource.
This section of the website was developed to become a quick reference for you as a veterinary practitioner to find the information most relevant to you such as disease information, test charts, and useful links. We will also be featuring a rotating series of short articles written by one of our agency veterinarians covering a special interest topic.
If you have any suggestions for content or changes to improve the Vet Corner, please contact our Director of Communications, Bonnie Ramirez. This is your resource; help us make it something you will utilize often. — Dee Ellis
