Pet owners should stop feeding their pets the recalled products and make sure no other animals have access to these products. Owners also should consult their veterinarian, especially if the pet is showing signs of illness. http://bit.ly/35EHXYR

Water remains as important for your horse in the winter as it is in the summer. As a matter of fact, decreased water consumption in the winter is thought to be the primary inducing factor for impaction colic — although there are other predisposing factors such as poor hay quality, lack of exercise, internal parasites and dental problems.

Impaction colic is essentially constipation and most often includes the accumulation of hard, dry fecal material in the colon. The usual signs of impending impaction colic are depression, a decreased appetite, and decreased production and dryness of manure.

Studies demonstrate that you can increase your horse's winter water consumption if you provide access to heated water, but ONLY if that is the only source of water available. You can read more on winter water consumption our website at https://aaep.org/horsehealth/winter-water-consumption

As always, if you have any questions about preventing colic in your horse, your local veterinarian remains your best source of information!

Time to set up Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for 2020

In 2019 New York State introduced a law requiring employers to provide Sexual Harassment Prevention training to all employees every year. You have until the end of 2020 to train your employees again and you can use online training. Our affinity partner, Benetech can provide a virtual training program for $160 for up to 20 employees. There are other vendors out there like Traliant who can provide a similar service, although it may cost more. This is something that you need to do. If there is a complaint from a staff member and you are not up-to-date with this training, you could be exposed to more risk.

With recent regulatory changes, by October 9, 2019 all NYS employers with one or more employees, both public and private, must provide sexual harassment prevention training for their employees.

General information

The New York State Veterinary Medical Society (NYSVMS) is the professional association representing the more than 3,500 veterinarians registered to practice in New York State. The NYSVMS promotes the practice of veterinary medicine, animal well-being, and public health, and offers a broad scope of programs and services to keep veterinarians and the public informed about issues, laws and regulations affecting veterinary practice. The NYSVMS was founded in 1890. Its leaders were the pioneers of modern veterinary medicine and were instrumental in introducing a practice act for veterinary medicine into law in 1895 when veterinarians joined physicians as one of the first licensed professions in New York State. The NYSVMS is the fourth largest state veterinary medical association in the nation and is recognized for its leadership on important issues, innovative solutions and effective representation. As a result of the excellence of its educational programs, publications and legislative efforts, the NYSVMS has become a recognized and influential voice for veterinarians on the national level, and before the New York State Legislature and regulatory agencies. Veterinarians are encouraged to invest in the future of veterinary medicine by becoming members of the NYSVMS.
