Veterinary Advisory Board Expands at Abaxis Inc

 

 

Four practitioners are joining the Veterinary Advisory Board at Abaxis Inc., a northern California company that manufactures, markets and sells portable blood analysis systems for the veterinary patient-care setting to provide rapid blood constituent measurements. This brings the number of board members to eight highly respected veterinarians, according to Abaxis.

The expansion results in a diverse team of board-certified specialists and private practitioners to help with instrument use, test interpretation and patient management, the company said. Customers also benefit from seminars taught by advisory board members, at national, state and local conferences, and through industry meetings and Abaxis University.

Craig Tockman, DVM, director of professional services for Abaxis North American Animal Health, said the board members are valued in their respective areas of expertise, as well as being outstanding educators. “By combining that expertise with Abaxis’ 24/7 technical service department, the company continues to expand its direct customer service benefits and economical point-of-care systems for the veterinary market,” Tockman said.
