2018 VMX (formerly NAVC)
Orlando, FL is still the location but the North American Veterinary Conference (NAVC) has a new name to go along with its rebranding--VMX stands for 'Veterinary Meeting & Expo' and it's shaping up to another busy CE event for snowbirds who want to escape the winter blahs for a few days in February.
The AAVN will host a day of nutrition lectures and our featured members who are presenting this year will be Drs. Maryanne Murphy and Angela Witzel Rollins, both on faculty at the University of Tennessee. On Tues. Feb. 6, 2018 their proposed topics and tentative presentation times are as follows:
8am: "Facts behind the fat: Why obesity matters & how to treat it"
10am: "Feeding dogs with chronic kidney disease: What the evidence can & can't tell us"
11am: "Diarrhea, vomiting, and food, oh my! When to use what for nutritionally managing gastrointestinal disease"
1:45pm: "Decision making for the inappetent dog & cat"
2:45pm: "To tube or not to tube? A guide to feeding tubes in small animal practice"
4pm: "How I treat: canine & feline pancreatitis"
4:15: "How I treat: colitis in the dog"
4:30: "How I treat: constipation in the cat"
