Online Courses Transition
to New Edition

This text is currently used in all three courses of Maddie’s® Online Certificate in Shelter Medicine, and we are anxiously awaiting the new Second Edition that will be published January 1, 2013. Both VME 6810 and VME 6812 begin January 7 and newly enrolled students will need this textbook for their studies.

Students who already own the First Edition of this book will be able to use it during Spring Semester. However, those who need to purchase the text should pre-order the updated and revised Second Edition. Either edition can be used during the upcoming term during the transition period to the new edition. However, the new edition will be required beginning with Summer 2013 term.
