First edition of NC State Veterinary Medicine's DVM quarterly newsletter.

Dear Colleagues,

Happy new year. The NC State Veterinary Hospital is proud to introduce our quarterly newsletter with the goal of connecting with the referring veterinary community in order to improve communication and services which we provide to our clients and patients. 

This newsletter will also serve to provide news and updates from the Veterinary Hospital and College.

It is imperative that we recognize the vital role that you play as part of our team in order to provide state-of-the-art, compassionate care while training the next generation of veterinary clinicians, scientists and specialists. We cannot achieve our goals without your help.

We strive to provide services that meet the needs of your clients and patients, and in order to be successful we request your constructive feedback. In addition to the newsletter, we've launched the NC State Small Animal Practitioner Advisory Council (SA-go-PAC)  which consists of a team of local DVMs to provide an objective view of our Hospital. Later in the year we will also launch a similar team for our Equine and Large Animal Hospital. If you're interested in participating, you can contact me directly. 

As always we hope the NC State Veterinary Hospital will serve as a valuable resource and would appreciate your continued support. In return we promise to do our best in managing the patients whose care you entrust to us while including you as part of our clinical team.

Effective communication is an integral component of any relationship and my door is always open. My email and office number are listed below.

What We've Been Up To
An Investment in Equine Excellence

Southern Pines Equine Associates veterinarians James Hamilton and Thomas Daniel Jr. have a long-standing, successful practice that keeps them busy. It would be easy for them to just focus on the day-to-day demands of a hectic schedule, but fortunately for the future of their profession, they take a longer view. Find out how.

New to the Crew

HEALL: Honoring Every Animal’s Life and Legacy

The goal of our pet grief support group, HEALL, is to provide people who have lost an animal with a safe and confidential environment in which to share their experiences with animal illness and death. The HEALL group is open to the public and free of charge, however registration is required. HEALL is held the second Thursday of each month, at 6:30 pm. Please contact Family & Community Services staff at 919-513-3901, or visit for more information.

Pet in Memoriam
When a beloved pet dies, it can leave a void that is comparable to the loss of a family member. Part of providing compassionate patient care is doing what we can to bring comfort and closure to bereaved people. By helping owners deal with their loss, we complete the cycle of care.

The North Carolina Veterinary Medical Foundation can be your partner in meeting your clients’ needs, softening the transition through a difficult time and demonstrating that your concern and support lives on. With your tax-deductible contribution of $25 to the NCVMF, the Foundation will send a personalized sympathy card with the acknowledgement that you have made a gift in support of the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine honoring the memory of their pet. Learn more.

We hope to see you there!
