The mission of the Western Canadian Animal Health Network (WeCAHN) is, in part, to provide timely information to Western Canadian veterinary practitioners, livestock producers, animal owners, and policy-makers.

WeCAHN is pleased to announce a pilot project establishing a listserv, for the purpose of allowing non-specialist veterinary practitioners in Western Canada to ask questions of specialists in swine practice. WeCAHN has engaged the services of the swine practitioners at Prairie Swine Health Services to answer  questions regarding development of diagnostic plans for cases involving smallholder swine clients. (Work to establish a similar listserv for poultry is underway).

For further information or to request membership on the listserv, please send an email to:
