President's Message

Dear Colleagues,

It seems impossible that another holiday season is upon us. My hope is that you take time to relax and enjoy time with family during this busy and exciting time of the year.

Last month we were fortunate to host a great presentation on diagnosing and managing conditions in senior pets, presented by Dr. Robert DuFort, DVM, DACVIM. This is an area of practice that is often challenging, and we are grateful to have heard his insight on the topic. The DCVMA would like to thank Dr. DuFort and IDEXX Laboratories for making this meeting possible!

Next month we will switch gears as we delve into the financial and legal aspects of veterinary practice. We are pleased to welcome representatives from Bland Garvey Accountant and Consultants, as well as Underwood Perkins, P.C. Attorneys and Counselors at Law. Lori Eads is a certified public accountant and co-founder of Bland Garvey Wealth Advisors. Chuck Blount and Amy Ratzlaff are attorneys who help businesses with employment law, as well as real estate and ownership transfer. Merck Animal Health has graciously offered to sponsor the November meeting.

In 2018 the DCVMA will be providing a discount on dues for multi-doctor practices that submit membership dues for all veterinarians in the practice on a single invoice. This is an easy way to ensure that members of your hospital are in good standing with the DCVMA. To take advantage of this discount, applications and dues must be submitted by February 13th, 2018 CE meeting date. Please contact Mandy Ricketts for more information.

We would also like to thank those nominees for secretary and senior board member. Your involvement is imperative to the success of the DCVMA!

Kind regards,

Angel Thompson, DVM, DACVS
