Schaumburg, Ill. -- The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) created new educational resources to help veterinarians deal with waste disposal.

"Practitioners need to be aware of the federal standards by which everyone must abide, as well as their local and state regulations, which vary across the nation," explains Dr. Kristi Henderson, assistant director of Scientific Activities with the association.

The association divided its new microsite into five areas: definitions, federal regulations, state regulations, AVMA resources and clinical resources.
