As a service to our clients, GVEC has created a reference library. We
have started with a few video and book titles and will add more as
interest dictates. In addition, we have tapes of our annual horse
health seminars from 1996 to the present, in case you missed one or
want a refresher course on a certain topic. Videos and books must be
picked up and returned at the clinic. Rental is free, but a $10 deposit
is required. This will be refunded upon return of the borrowed item.
