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 Story...
