Veterinary Events in 2015

VETERINARY CENTER FOR BIRDS & EXOTICSIt’s no secret that the team at the Veterinary Center for Birds & Exotics enjoys attending veterinary events, both to gain continuing education and to share knowledge with other veterinarians in the field. We are excited to announce that we will be involved in a number of incredible veterinary events this coming year. Dr. Laurie Hess will be speaking at two well-known conferences, NAVC (North American Veterinary Conference) in Orlando, FL, January 17-21 and WVC (Western States Veterinary Conference) in Las Vegas, NV, February 13-19. She will be lecturing on various exotic animal subjects, as well as on veterinary practice social media marketing with Bill Schroeder of InTouch Practice Communications. Dr. Hess will also be attending the ICARE (International Conference on Avian, Herpetological, and Exotic Mammal Medicine) in Paris, April 18-23, where she will meet with hundreds of exotic veterinary colleagues from around the world to share ideas and experiences.

Other events that the Veterinary Center for Birds & Exotics staff will be attending include:
