American Veterinary Medical Association Convention in St. Louis

I was there with Dan Kramer, then of Pfizer Animal Health when the CATalyst Council was created. The CATalyst Council met at the AVMA meeting with a meeting of our own (I am on the CATalyst Board).

Dan is the past chair (as well as a founder) and Dr. Alexis Nahama of VCA is the current chair, a driving force behind CATalyst.

Give Your Dog a Valentine, A Pacemaker

Pacemakers can offer hope to dogs with heart disease. It’s amazing, read that sentence 20 years ago and people would have laughed – on two accounts. First, it’s crazy that such a thing could occur, pacemakers for dogs – just a wacky idea that would or could never happen. Second, even if it were possible... Read more »
