Late summer/early fall is always time for the big exotic animal conferences. This year, the Association of Avian Veterinarians (AAV) will meet in New Orleans for lectures, master classes and laboratories all designed to keep avian veterinarians up to date on the latest in avian medicine and surgery. Dr. Lee gives her first presentation at a large exotic conference: "A Review of Cloacal Diseases in Birds". If you see Dr. Lee this month, ask her to practice a part of her presentation for you! Dr. Lennox will teach and present a lab as well, but really looks forward to lots of learning.
In October the Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians will meet with the zoo and reptile/amphibian group for a joint conference in Orlando. Again, it will be a great time for us to catch up with colleagues from all over the world, and soak up some great knowledge to take back home.
