President's Message

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to 2018! I hope everybody’s holiday season was filled with friends, family, fun and hopefully a little bit of time off.

I would like to extend a special “thank you” to both Dr. Angel Thompson of DVSC (President) and Dr. Mark Stanfill of Animal Hospital of Ovilla (Senior Board Member) for their service to our Association during the past year. And for all the previous years for which they have volunteered their time to make our Association and profession in Dallas County stronger for us all. 

Also, a special welcome to Dr. Robert Munger of Animal Ophthalmology Clinic back for another round as Senior Board Member and Dr. Teri Rowan of Rutherford Veterinary Hospital as Secretary. 

Our condolences to the family of Dr. Vladi deJong who passed away on November 8, 2017 from a serious head injury from a fall. He owned and operated The Vet Stop since 1990. Also our condolences to Dr. Cindy Stevens who lost her husband, Xavia Milton Holt, on December 8, 2017. He retired from the army as Lieutenant Colonel and was a paratrooper in Vietnam. We wish both these families peace and comfort during this time. 

Dr Rachel Roark is lining up a great CE year for 2018 and DCVMA will be presenting some great speakers on a variety of practical topics. In January, we will be welcoming Dr. Jan S. Suchodolski of MedVet to speak to us about the “Gut Microbiome”. Nutramax has graciously provided sponsorship of January’s meeting. 

Please take advantage of our new 2018 membership discount encouraging full practice membership. If a multi-doctor (or solo) practice pays for membership for all of its associates in a single payment by February 13 (the 2nd monthly meeting), a discount of 20% will be applied. 

The CE meeting fee is again waived for members in 2018 as DCVMA continues to promote a strong CE lineup at an excellent value for all of our members in Dallas County.
