President’s Message

Dear PCVMA Members,

As promised, we are continuing with our virtual CE each month. On Thursday January 21st Dr. Terri Baldwin from Bluepearl Specialty + Emergency Hospital provided a 2 hour presentation on “Ocular Manifestations of Systemic Diseases” that was attended by 37 members. On Monday February 22st at 7 PM,  Virbac will sponsor a 90 minute presentation by Pam Jones DVM ACVIM (Oncology) ACVR (Radiation Oncology) on Stelfonta “Seeing is Believing”.

A friendly reminder for everyone to make sure that you have paid your PCVMA dues for 2021. I look forward to having a live meeting sometime later this year, but in the meantime will continue to plan the monthly virtual CE meetings.
