Dear Member,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

School is back in session, and in a similar fashion, our next meeting will be held on Thursday, September 12. Dinner will be available from 6:30-7:30 pm, and the CE will begin promptly at 7:30 pm. We are fortunate to have Dr. Jay Tischendorf speak on zoonotic diseases. Prior to receiving his DVM from Colorado State University, Dr. Tischendorf has served as a Marine and a wildlife firefighter. Thanks to Merck for sponsoring the September meeting.

In October, we will hold the last meeting of the year. On Sunday, October 6, the morning session will be delivered by Dr. Karen Felsted. Her two topics will address buying and selling a practice, current trends in the veterinary market, and what clients want. The afternoon session will feature Dr. Audrey Cook, and we will learn about adrenal testing, trilostane monitoring, and feline chronic enteropathies. Thanks to our gold sponsor, Dechra, and our bronze sponsor, Care Credit. Please make sure you register online for this meeting. Registration is $100 for non-member DVMs, $65 for technicians, and free for HCVMA members. We hope that you gain pearls of wisdom that can be applied to your daily practice. 


Respectfully submitted,
Jaclyn Ong, DVM
HCVMA President 2019
