New Fact Sheets Available on launched the first in a series of Fact Sheets on Jan. 13 to widespread acclaim.

Each Fact Sheet will:

  • Be written by a veterinarian and reviewed by an expert to ensure accurate information; and
  • Be presented in a format you can download and save to your own computer, print and share, or e-mail to a friend.

After reviewing a Fact Sheet you can look through our Article Library of more than 13,500 articles to find more in-depth information on that topic, or even seek another Fact Sheet on a related topic.
