Dear Member,

Can you believe Thanksgiving is only weeks away? It seems summer just left town a week ago. Our HCVMA 2018 CE schedule is now complete and plans for 2019 are being finalized.  Our all-day seminar with Dr. Justine Lee, was a great finale to the 2018 lineup. We received nothing but positive feedback for Dr. Justine Lee and Dr. Heidi Hottinger. Thank you again to Merck, Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists, Care Credit, and e3 Wealth for sponsoring this meeting and to Purina for sponsoring the meeting proceedings. The support of our HCVMA members and sponsors make this type of high-quality CE possible.

Our next meeting will be held Thursday, January 10th at our new location, Maggiano’s Little Italy at 2019 Post Oak Blvd. This meeting will feature veterinary behaviorist Dr. Lore Haug. Join us at 6:30 for dinner and social hour, followed by two hours of CE 7:30 – 9:30. To help us with planning for this meeting at our new venue, we ask members to register on-line for the January meeting. Registration will open November 1st at There is no fee for this meeting, but we would like to have an accurate headcount. If you do not register, you may still attend, but you may miss out on a delicious Italian dinner. 

You can also renew your membership on-line for 2019 starting on November 1st. Please register for the January meeting and in the meantime, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.

Respectfully Submitted,
