Free veterinary webinars, a biological dilemma and jewellery for the chemist in your life

Betty sits helpfully in the middle of the action.
Today’s post is brought to you by Betty, a stunning Burmese who loves hanging out in her mum’s sewing room (having visited myself, I can attest that it’s a delightful living space).

If you’re putting together your continuing education plan for next year, the Australian Small AnimalVeterinary Association has released its program of webinars. This year’s series were excellent and 2014 promises great topics. See the program here. They're free for ASAVA members, and in my view the webinars alone are worth joining for.

Betty's family keep plenty of toys in her favourite room.
For those with strong stomachs, Dr Scott Weese posted this thoughtful piece about a very disgusting dilemma involving a cat and a very queasy lady with bad aim. Read on here.

And Betty makes use of them! A lot.
Here at SAT we are big into science-themed fashion. Especially if we can purchase it online in betwixt writing science-themed blogposts.

If you are seeking a gift for the chemistry-oriented in your life, check out these stunning chemical formula necklaces. Somewhat intriguingly, they are themed around illicit drugs and reproductive hormones, a teratogenic combination. Have a look here

Thanks Betty!
