Last month’s meeting nearly broke records in attendance – missed a record by 2! Dr Goldstein gave great lectures on Lyme and leptospirosis and I am sure we all picked up one or two pearls.
The large attendance did have some issues with parking – if the front lot is full there is plenty of room behind the building. Please make sure when you are parking you are not blocking another member in.
This month we will be hearing from Dr. Todd Tams, chief medical officer of VCA on GI medicine who literally wrote the book on gastroenterology. “Stomach issues” appear on all the pet insurance top 10 lists for claims so this is a common issue that we deal with daily. These lectures will provide great review of the decision-making process and diagnostic algorithm when we are presented with these cases.
As veterinarians I am sure we will be able to hear about vomiting and diarrhea while dining on breakfast and lunch.
It is that time of year again when we look for nomination for a new VP and director. If any members have any interest or questions please feel free to find Larry or me to discuss this further.
Please remember to visit the exhibitors during the remaining seminars, their sponsorship allows us to offer this great CE at a reduced fee.
