Cove Crew Spotlight: Wendy Ogden
🌟 Meet Wendy Ogden, Inventory Supervisor at Las Vegas Veterinary Specialty Center, and our latest Cove Crew Spotlight Series star! Wendy has been an active Vetcove user since March of 2018.
Wendy’s favorite Vetcove tip: “My favorite tool on Vetcove is that I can switch to the next vendor in line to check out. It seems small but it’s a big time saver for me since I place so many orders.”

Vetcove Discuss Contest: Western Wildfires — How to Help
For this week’s discussion contest, we want to open a dialogue about the wildfires that are currently ravaging the western part of the United States. Let’s talk about what we can do to help! Head here to view our discuss thread
Are you in an affected area or do you want to support those that are? Let’s put our heads together to share and compile some resources. If you’ve found a way to help, donate, or send resources to the affected areas, please post them here. No amount of help is too small. It can be something as simple as an idea or message of encouragement to donation links and organizations that are deploying help that you can join in on.
We’ve complied a few resources below that are focused on animal welfare to kick it off. To drive the conversation, on 9/21 the comment on this thread with the highest number of upvotes will win a $25 Amazon E-Gift card! To top it off, we’ll be sending a matching donation to Red Rover.
How to help:
Red Rover offers a huge list of animal resources compiled by region: https://redrover.org/2020/09/09/westernfires/
