Michigan Veterinarians Trained for Animal Health Emergency Response

Training sessions offered through the Michigan Emergency Veterinary Network (VET NET) are designed to educate the state's 3600 veterinarians regarding response to an animal health emergency. The VET NET training includes two main components, the first aimed at increasing veterinarians' awareness about issues associated with emergency response, and the second is an in-depth emergency preparedness training program targeting the voluntary Michigan Veterinary Corps. The Corps will "receive on-going training to prepare participants to supplement state and federal agency efforts and further ensure the health and safety of the state's livestock and domestic animals," according to the Michigan Department of Agriculture.
