Lending Library

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.
