Contact your legislators in support of animal dentistry legislation
NYSVMS
Currently in New York State, there is legislation in both the Assembly and Senate that would add dentistry to the veterinary practice definition. We are asking that all veterinarians reach out to their representatives in support for the legislation. It is likely that lay equine dentists will rally the equine communities to contact legislators in opposition of these bills. Your voice counts and is essential to our success in getting this important legislation passed.

Vermont Veterinary Medical Association via VT Digger
Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin signed into law, on May 2, a bill to include veterinary dentistry in the practice of veterinary medicine. The new law makes it clear that dental scaling and the use of power-tool floating equipment fall within the practice of veterinary medicine, ensuring that dental procedures that can cause potential harm and pain to animals are done by trained veterinarians and their staff who have the equipment and sedation necessary for the health and safety of their animals.

Bloomberg Businessweek
As the city that never sleeps, New York City has a seemingly unquenchable thirst for decent coffee, a fact not lost on the likes of Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts and, most recently, Purina ONE, which opened the continent's first pop-up cat café on New York City's Lower East Side.
