THE DUCHESS FUND 2004 REVIEW


In June of this year, the Duchess Fund again sponsored
the attendance of swine expert, Bruce Lawhorn, DVM, MS
of Texas A&M University at the Sixth Annual Pet Pig
Symposium at Iowa State University. This was hosted by
John Carr, BVSc, DPM, PhD, MRCVS, who did a marvelous
job. This was an awesome symposium with great speakers
and many interesting and unusual surgeries. It really is
encouraging to see this kind of education happening
every year to benefit our pet pigs. We look forward to
next years symposium at the University of Tennessee.

WHY VACCINATE YOUR POTBELLIED PIG?

WHY
VACCINATE YOUR POTBELLIED PIG?


By: D. Bruce
Lawhorn, DVM, MS



As you know
by now the Duchess Fund was honored to sponsor the
attendance of Bruce Lawhorn, DVM, MS, at the Annual
Potbellied Pig Symposium in Ft. Myers, Florida in April,
2002. Unfortunately, time constraints prohibited him
from addressing the subject of annual vaccinations
for potbellied pigs
. Vaccination protocols for
potbellied pigs have been a focus of many discussions so
he was kind enough to write the following article for us
to submit and share with others. Thanks once again to
Dr. Lawhorn for his commitment, dedication, generosity
and assistance! Click Here For Full
