The vet lab based at the SAC College looks like it will close this Autumn if we don't make our feelings known.
There is a consultation which ends on Sunday and we have been sent this petition from Franz, one of the vets who work at the facility, which we hope you will sign in a bid to keep the Lab: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/do-not-close-the-veterinary-services-disease
As you will see it has been signed by MSPs Rhoda Grant and John Finnie but the general consensus in the powers that be, is that when SAC moves to its new premises at the HIE Inverness College campus the marine animal and farm animal post mortem facility will not move with it. Instead it will close for good. This will be a great loss to the Highlands and island and can potentially cause a lot of problems for the crofters and farmers in the area.
We hope you will take the time to sign the petition and pass it on to friends and family.
