Have you trained a red river hog for voluntary blood collection? Are you in the process of training a tiger to participate in voluntary SC fluids? Did it take four different methods, over a year, and building modifications to finally get a successful abdominal ultrasound on a lion? We want to hear about it. Submit ideas for presentations and posters by Friday January 25th. Decisions of acceptance will be made by Friday February 1st. Abstracts of accepted presentations and posters due by Friday February 15th.
[AZVT will apply for RACE continuing education credits in hopes of providing CE for any veterinary technicians attending.]
