President’s Message

Dear PCVMA Members,

Congratulations! 2020 is in the rear-view mirror. I doubt that any of us will be missing last year.
EVER! Happy New Year!! We have much to be thankful for. Our profession has proven (once
again) to be one of the most resilient industries during not only serious financially challenging
times but now during the first world pandemic of our lifetimes.

You and your teams have adapted to the new normal of operating safely that is required in
delivering care to patients while experiencing an increased demand for care. This increased
demand for our services is gratifying and rewarding, but that same demand and change in
operating procedures along with the lack of ability to conduct live meetings is increasing stress
and isolation in the industry. This is common feedback that we are receiving from our members
as we interact with them. I am hopeful that we will be able to resume our live meetings by
sometime this summer as the covid-19 vaccine is more widely distributed. In the mean time we
will continue having virtual CE available.

Speaking of CE, our January offering will be a 2 hour RACE approved presentation by Dr. Terri
Baldwin from BluePearl Specialty + Emergency Pet Hospital on “Ocular Manifestations of
Systemic Diseases”. This will be another virtual presentation on Thursday night January 21st
starting at 7pm. An email invitation will be coming out soon.
