President’s Message 

May is upon us, it’s time for graduations and warm weather is here to stay. It’s time for our clients to be outdoors with their pets at dog parks and doggie day care. So let’s help them keep their pets parasite free. This month’s meeting is sponsored by Idexx and we will be learning about diagnosing our patients using fecal antigen test.

Our speaker will be Bryan Rothlein, DVM.  His topic is Fecal Antigen Tests: Hookworms, Roundworms and Whipworms. This is a one hour CE.

Our meeting is at Bascom’s Chop House on Monday evening May 21, 2018.
