Hundreds to Attend Veterinary Technician Seminar

COLLEGE STATION, April 27, 2006 – Approximately 400 veterinary technicians will converge on the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences at Texas A&M University this weekend for the 13th Annual Veterinary Technician Seminar April 28-30.

Sponsored by the college’s Office of Veterinary Continuing Education, the seminar should prove to be a weekend filled with interesting and informative lectures and laboratory opportunities for new and experienced veterinary technicians. “The seminar theme is ‘Depend on Your Skills Not Your Luck,’ which emphasizes the importance of improving one’s veterinary technician skills,” says Sherry Adams, Veterinary Continuing Education Coordinator. “That’s the goal of this conference.”

The veterinary technician seminar continues to grow in numbers and popularity each year. “A tremendous amount of preparation goes into putting on a quality seminar of this size and depth,” Adams says. “It takes a lot of people working together to offer such a comprehensive program.”

The seminar will cover topics related to both small and large animal technician skills from pain management to dermatologic disorders and everything in between. In addition to the college faculty and staff speakers at the conference, special guest speakers include Tony Basile, Equine Dental Coordinator at UC Davis Veterinary School and a leader in the treatment of equine periodontal disease, and Angel Rivera, AHT, CVT, VTS, from the Animal Emergency Center in Glendale, Wisconsin, who is an internationally renowned speaker on all aspects of emergency care, practice management and ventilator medicine.

The seminar lectures and labs begin on Friday, April 28, at 5:00 p.m. and will conclude on Sunday, April 30, at 12 noon.
