AVC News and Events

September 28 to October 14 is National Animal Health Week. This year, the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association is highlighting antimicrobial stewardship during the week. Antibiotics are important drugs that can save lives, but they must be used appropriately to ensure that they remain effective against illnesses and diseases that can affect animals. 

The 2014 Honourable Eugene F. Whelan Green Hat Award was awarded to Dr. Ian Dohoo, Professor Emeritus in Veterinary Epidemiology at AVC, during UPEI's annual Founders Day Ceremony on Thursday, September 25. Jeff Dohoo (right), Dr. Dohoo's son, accepts the award in his father's absence, from citation reader Dr. Larry Hammell (left). Congratulations, Dr. Dohoo!
