Larry Bramlage, DVM, MS, Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons, was one of the industry leaders who was asked to provide veterinary comment on editor Kimberly S. Herbert’s September Viewpoint urging the veterinary community to provide information from the research laboratory and the field to veterinarians and horse owners in a more expedient manner.
