I will be attending the American Veterinary Medical Association meeting in Seattle, Washington beginning Saturday, July 11 through Tuesday, July 14th. I am proud to say this will be my 13th conference (I missed the Hawaii conference due to an unexpected hospitalization that broke my attendance record! I must admit every time veterinary colleagues comment what a wonderful meeting it was I feel sad!) I am looking forward to seeing everyone and learning about the latest advances in veterinary medicine.
