*Boehringer Ingelheim presents lunchtime lecture--November 16*

Boehringer Ingelheim presents "Compounding: Friend or Foe?," a lunchtime
lecture with Dr. Walt Ingwerson on Wednesday, November 16. Famous Peppers
Pizza will be served.

Sourcing pharmaceuticals through a compounding pharmacy has become a more
available option to veterinarians with the intent of providing customized
medicines and formulations to meet the needs of individual patients.
However, compounded products are not licensed pharmaceuticals and carry
liability risks for the practitioner as well as efficacy and safety
uncertainty for the pet. These issues will be discussed during the lecture.

For more information, contact Haley Casbeer, Class of 2018, hcasbeer at upei.ca

*Breeder needs help to look after dogs*

I am a medical laboratory technologist who breeds CKC registered Golden
retrievers as a hobby.  I had an unfortunate accident last Friday where I
fell down my stairs and broke my foot. Thankfully no surgery, but I will be
off work for 6 weeks.  Looking after my dogs has never been a problem when
i was  able bodied...but now it's different.

I am looking for a student that would look after my dogs, and kennel for
the time I am off.  Feeding the dogs, putting them out into their runs,
cleaning the living area of the dogs, picking the kennel runs....basically,
someone that can give them the  care I normally do. A live-in situation
would probably be best as they are on a routine. Need I say that I also
have 21 three-week puppies I am caring for.

Hoping someone can help. Renumeration and board to be discussed.
