AVMA brochures
 

The AVMA is revamping its educational brochures on careers and pet health for 2009 to promote the veterinary profession and animal care.

The AVMA career brochures have a new look this year. Each of the three titles features a contemporary design to appeal to students in grades six to 12. The publications describe the career opportunities for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and the rest of the health care team in a clinical practice. The brochures complement the AVMA's career DVD and classroom poster. The series is online at www.avma.org/careers.

The educational brochures on pet health are part of the AVMA's "What you should know about ..." series of publications available in English and Spanish at www.avma.org/animal_health. The titles cover issues relevant to pet selection and health as well as public health—including rabies, dog bites, and toxoplasmosis. The brochures, which the AVMA updates frequently in client-friendly language, can reinforce veterinarians' recommendations for animal care or serve as handouts at school and community events.

All AVMA brochures are on the Web site to download for free, and most are available for purchase in packages of 50. The AVMA is planning several new titles for later this year, and the additions to the series also will be at www.avma.org.
