    Ooo wow!! This program is absolutely amazing. Finally something for middle school and kalamazoo youth to explore being a veterinarian. Drcroom.com is a great website. Are you planning on having some 3d printed materials at your event on March 25th? I have bought a few from vetsin3d.com already so excited to see what else you come up with!

    I sent a note thru the chat system then noticed this email comment section. This is a little easier to use.
    It was a pleasure meeting you this morning at the NMA meeting. I was a visitor also. A woman by the name of Shannon Sykes Nehring challenged a group I’m in to build relationships with people of color. So this is part of my journey. It’s a little awkward at times.
    I see that the Future Vet presentation is limited to ten kids at $35 each. So I enrolled to sponsor one.

      Thank you so much, Mr. Freiman. You are the absolute best for becoming a sponsor for a Future Vet. Much appreciated. I look forward to seeing you at future events and perhaps through Dr. Croom Mobile Veterinary Service for your wife’s cat.
