We STRONGLY recommend testing the webinar link you were emailed PRIOR to the start of the webinar.

 

  • Minimum internet connection speed for webinars is 5 Mbps. If your speed is less than 5 Mbps, you may experience delays, poor sound quality and disconnects.
  • You should conduct the test from the device you will be using to view the webinar with...computer, tablet, or mobile phone.
  • You will use a web browser to view the webinar if you're using a computer. Make sure your browser supports Flash and that you update Flash if need be before the webinar begins. IF YOUR COMPUTER AND BROWSER DO NOT SUPPORT FLASH YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE WEBINAR!
  • Tablets and mobile phones require an app download* and installation in order for the webinar to work, and the VBMA cannot guarantee that our webinars will work on anything other than a computer. If you choose to use a tablet or mobile phone and are unable to access the webinar, we will be unable to assist you and refunds will NOT be provided.

 

If you DO NOT test the webinar link PRIOR to the start of the webinar and experience technical issues accessing the live presentation, we may not be able to assist you or refund your purchase price. Once the webinar has begun, please EMAIL US at communicationscoordinator@vbma.org with questions or concerns. Please refrain from using the webinar Q&A section to report technical issues. Refunds  will be provided on a case by case basis at the discretion of the VBMA.

 

When you're ready to join the webinar, turn on your computer speakers (or plug in your headphones to your computer/speakers) and click on the link next to the words VBMA WEBINAR.

 

The ‘lobby’ page will load:

You'll hear music and/or nature sounds while you wait until the session begins. MAKE SURE you can hear the hold music/sounds. (If you're testing the link prior to the start of the webinar, simply close the tab or browser window you're using to exit, then click on the link in the previously-sent email again to join the webinar at its scheduled time.) When the moderator and speaker are ready to begin the presentation, you will be admitted to the webinar automatically and your page will 'refresh'.

 

Once the webinar page loads, a box will pop up:

Simply click OK. DO NOT check the dial in via telephone box.

 

You'll hear an announcement advising that your passcode has been accepted, and hold music will play until the webinar begins. When it does, all you have to do is listen...it's that simple. If at any time you feel as if the audio is difficult to hear, we suggest using headphones/earbuds.

VBMA Endorses Quality Herbal Products

 

VBMA recognizes that the herbal product industry has faced quality control and regulatory challenges, and we recommend supporting those companies attempting to self regulate in a meaningful way. Companies that manufacture herbal products marketed for humans should be members of the American Herbal Products Association, an industry organization which explores issues, interacts with regulators, and establishes policy.  Veterinary product companies should be members of the National Animal Supplement Council, an organization which develops policies and procedures on adverse event reporting and quality control.

Important Message For Pet Owners

 

The VBMA does not endorse any products sold on the internet for self prescribing to animals. We believe in the interests of safety that any herb should always be prescribed by a qualified practitioner. There are companies using our name with the suggestion that we endorse their recommendations or products. We specifically DO NOT support any website that unethically sells herbs to the public for non prescribed use in animals.  If you are in any doubt as to the authenticity of a claim made on a website about VBMA, please contact us at office@vbma.org.  You may use the 'find a veterinarian' link on our site menu to find a qualified practitioner near you.
