OLD LYME, Conn., Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- One of YouTube's most popular animal reality series, Veterinarians On Call, has expanded into horse stories with three special videos, one a Hispanic surgeon at Tufts Large Animal Hospital near Boston treating a horse for a leg injury, another a former child star now veterinarian treating a horse's eye. The new videos premiered this season on channel www.YouTube.com/VetsOnCall or www.YouTube.com/VeterinariansOnCall.
The popular YouTube series is now reaching hundreds of thousands of TV viewers, debuting as a segment on national TV news shows AgDay and US Farm Report in October thanks to an agreement between producers at Essex Television and Farm Journal Television. Essex Television is the Connecticut TV production company behind the popular, long-running Discovery Velocity network TV show Chasing Classic Cars.
AgDay airs on 130 TV stations with daily viewership of 200,000 households plus 50,000 Web viewers at www.AgDay.com (see list of TV stations by state at www.agweb.com/agday/agday_stations.aspx). US Farm Report airs on 150 TV stations with 450,000 weekly viewers. Both shows also air on RFD-TV, the national cable network for rural America.
Wes Mills, Managing Editor of Farm Journal Television of Indiana, commented, "When I first saw the Vets on Call videos, I knew they were a perfect fit for our programs. We are proud to showcase these important men and women on the front lines of animal healthcare."
Animal owners and animal lovers have flocked to the series which follows veterinarians and the animals in their care. YouTube viewers have rated the videos overwhelmingly with 1,000+ likes and hundreds of Shares, Comments, and Favorites. To ensure the integrity of the content, all veterinarians volunteer to appear and are not compensated, plus no products are promoted in the series.
Two of the new horse videos feature vets from Northwestern NY State. In one, Dr. Pete Ostrum mentors the newest vet in his clinic Dr. Jen Nightingale as they treat a horse suffering from an eye condition. Dr. Ostrum is known nationally as a veterinarian and for his unique past playing "Charlie" in Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory. In the other, Dr. Deanna Fuller and Dr. Lindsey Peck teach horse care to 4-H student Camille, who hopes to grow up to be a veterinarian.
The third video features Dr. Jose Garcia-Lopez of Tufts University Hospital for Large Animals outside Boston, the first minority and first Hispanic veterinarian to be profiled in the series. The story follows an appointment where he diagnoses and treats injured show horse Matador.
Up next for the series are two of the top U.S. racehorse vets, Dr. Larry Bramlage and Dr. Spike-Pierce of Lexington, Kentucky, who were recently filmed for the series.
The series is presented by Pfizer Animal Health. Clint Lewis, President of U.S. Operations for Pfizer Animal Health, commented, "These videos help the public see the important role veterinarians play in ensuring the optimal health and wellness of pets and farm animals."
The series is presented as part of Pfizer Animal Health's Commitment to Veterinarians™ platform (www.vets.pfizerah.com), which supports the veterinary industry through training and education, research and development, investing in the future of the profession, and philanthropy.

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years.

Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...
