We’re here to help!

Most foundations give money, the VIN Foundation gives resources. A healthy animal community depends on a healthy veterinary community, these resources help veterinarians thrive so they can help our animals and those who care for them.
Each resource is available to all veterinarians and veterinary students at no cost and regularly updated with the most current information.
From Student Debt information to Vets4Vets® support to on-the-go inspiration and learning with podcasts and much more, the VIN Foundation offers a wealth of free resources.

The Veterinary Support Personnel Network (VSPN) is an interactive online community.

VSPN is all about bringing together members from all over the world to interact, teach, and learn from each other. As a member of VSPN, you’ll have access to thousands of colleagues worldwide who want to help you and your patients — 24-hours a day!
VSPN has over 37,000 members world-wide ranging from veterinary assistant students to veterinary technician specialists. As a member of the VIN® family, all of this is brought together and powered by the Veterinary Information Network®.
Membership to VSPN is FREE.
VIN® extends its commitment to the well-being of companion animals by providing the finest and most accurate pet health information in its client education website, Veterinary Partner®.
Sharing Veterinary Partner® articles with clients post-visit is a great way to ensure they remember and understand the information you covered.

VetzInsight seeks to educate pet owners in a lighthearted, sometimes poignant manner by taking a sideways look at companion animal issues.

Rather than explain what occurs in a disease process and how to treat it – which is what our sister site Veterinary Partner® does – our goal is not only to inform on larger issues but to tap into the numerous emotions at play within the human-animal bond. We’re here to learn and have fun.
Additionally, VetzInsight seeks to facilitate the notion that communication between veterinarians and pet owners is not only okay, it is essential. To provide the best care for your pet, you and your veterinarian need to listen to and understand what the other is saying.
A cooperative effort from VIN®, VetzInsight is brought to you by the same folks who offer Veterinary Partner®, a trusted source for pet lovers since 2002.

The legacy of Dr. Sophia Yin.

Dr. Yin was a Veterinarian, Animal Behaviorist, Author, and internationally renowned expert on Low Stress Handling. Her “pet-friendly” techniques for animal handling and behavior modification, many of which she developed herself through the scientific method of research and rigorous testing, are shaping the new standard of care for Veterinarians, Petcare and other Companion and Farm Animal professionals. She passed away in September of 2014 but her work and legacy lives on with CattleDog Publishing and Low Stress Handling® University.
Low Stress Handling® University is the one stop shop for Companion Animal Professionals like you to be able to find the classes you need to help you better serve your clients, increase business, and/or lower worker’s compensation costs.

The VIN® News Service was created in 2008 as the news media arm of the Veterinary Information Network®.

The VIN® News Service is an independent news-gathering service that examines issues of concern, importance and interest to the veterinary community, and communicates veterinary perspectives to the public.
Our goal is to provide unbiased, accurate, insightful news reports and analyses that explore topics and viewpoints not commonly covered by other media outlets. We seek to be an indispensable source for trusted information relevant to the veterinary profession.
The VIN® News Service does not accept advertising or sponsorships. It is funded solely by the Veterinary Information Network®. We can be reached at

3D Veterinary Anatomy, Clinical Concepts, Interactive Courses and Education

Have you always wanted to fly through a cat skull? Spin a spleen? With IVALA® 3D Anatomy, you can pick apart bones, muscles, eyeballs, the heart and the little stuff that connects them and makes them function — or explore the skull or abdomen — and much more — without getting your hands dirty (or smelling like formalin for weeks!)
IVALA® LEARN has something for everyone. First and second year students learning anatomy for the first time can virtually dissect, explore and test themselves. Clinical year students and experienced clinicians can review the anatomy relevant to procedures they are preparing to undertake.
