NAVC chief executive Thomas Bohn said: “The online community platform offered by NAVC will be the largest and most robust online veterinary learning portal in the world. We are very excited to partner with Vetstream, one of the premier providers of veterinary CPD, and are also delighted to include the Canis, Felis, Equis and Lapis content in the Vetfolio Knowledgebase that we will be providing.”
