On May 17, 2019, Dr. Barbara Dyall made history as the first non-US VALS certified individual, with a close to perfect score! Dr. Dyall has recently completed an ECVS residency at the Evidensia Specialist Animal Hospital in Strömsholm, Sweden. Congratulations!

Dr. Dyall was focused on work at hand in the VALT laboratory at WSU in Pullman.
