I am writing to you from the North American Veterinary Community Conference (NAVC) in sunny Orlando. Veterinarians just like human doctors need to complete a set number of continuing education hours every year to maintain a license to practice medicine. NAVC is attended by more than 6,000 veterinarians every year and is a five-day extravaganza of knowledge and fun.

North American Veterinary Community

Great exhibits and lectures are just part of the action at the North American Veterinary Community Conference

This will be my fifth time attending and it is something I look forward to each year. Veterinary specialists from around the world gather to give lectures on the latest research and recommendations in veterinary medicine. I am able to learn new information and techniques as well as brush up on any topics that I may need a refresher course on.

There are also two huge exhibit halls displaying all the newest food, gadgets, instruments and toys for pets out on the market.   Not only is NAVC a lot of fun but it allows me to stay current and practice the best medicine possible.
