DENVER, Oct. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading Edge Veterinary Equipment, an exclusive international supplier of new veterinary medical equipment, joins forces with Butler Schein™ Animal Health - the U.S. Animal Health division of Henry Schein (NASDAQ: HSIC) to donate a complete surgical suite of veterinary equipment to the Big Dog Ranch Rescue, a unique no-kill dog rescue situated on 28 acres in Wellington, Florida.
