For You: From the AVMA’s Audio-Visual Department

It’s an audio-visual world these days, thanks to online resources like YouTube and iTunes. And, in case you weren’t aware, the AVMA is a major player on both. If you’re looking for informative, educational and entertaining videos and audio clips for yourself or your clients, we’ve got just what you’re looking for.

A new AVMA Animal Tracks podcast is posted to our website each week, providing you with expert opinions and advice related to a variety of pet-related issues, as well as animal and human health. Some of our most recent topics and guests include “Breaking up a dog fight,” featuring board-certified veterinary behaviorist Dr. Bonnie Beaver; “Pet blood banks,” with Dr. Leah Cohn, professor of small animal internal medicine at the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine; and Dr. Tom Walker, assistant professor of pharmacology and toxicology at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, talking about epilepsy in pets. These are just a few of the many interesting issues we tackle, and you can find them all in one place by visiting our online podcast library, where you can listen to and download them for free. The podcasts are also available on iTunes for free and easy downloading to your Apple computer and hand-held devices.

When it comes to videos, the AVMA is really making a splash. AVMA-produced videos have been viewed nearly 240,000 times on our AVMAvets channel on YouTube, where you can find the full collection of everything we’ve produced. You’ll find videos highlighting the recent AVMA Annual Convention, be introduced to our newest class of AVMA Future Leaders and have access to dozens of patient-friendly segments dedicated to pet ownership and pet health. Our videos also give you a chance to meet AVMA members and leaders who have volunteered their time to help us spread our message in an increasingly technological world.

  1. Hi AVMA,

    Like everyone else, I love YouTube videos and Podcasts.

    I’m glad to hear that you have both and I think that it’s a great learning resource for clients. It’s a good resource for vets who want to refer clients regarding specific issues, and a good news source for all animal lovers.

    Sometimes I’m in the mood to read, sometimes I’m in the mood to listen, and sometimes I’m in the mood to watch something. Good to have three options.

    Looking forward to checking out the Podcasts and videos.

  2. When I follow your link to AVMAvets channel I get everything for clients, vet and political all mixed up. Can you tell me how I can get to what might be useful to my clients in a “client friendly” manner. Most clients aren’t going to wade through a lot of videos to find the one their doc recommended.
