Exciting news! Alberta Goat Association is very proud to have taken part in helping create this invaluable resource. AFAC has developed a Veterinary Database that is up and running on their website! You can search clinics in a radius of up to 200 km from your location and even make your search species specific. We can now help you take the guess work out of finding a clinic that will work for you.
