    It sounds like you had a fantastic time! It’s great to get out of town and also have the opportunity to learn so many new things. I would love to hear more about the lecture on canine separation anxiety disorder if you decide to write about it sometime.

  4. Thanks, Elaine. I also thought that the lecture on canine separation anxiety disorder would make the basis for a great blog post. Thanks for bringing it up. I just put “canine separation anxiety disorder” on a list of ideas for future blog posts.

  5. Sounds like a beneficial conference for knowledge, relaxation, networking and a little fun. Perfect combination. Glad you went, happy you’re back safe. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Thanks, Groovy Goldendoodles!

  7. Sounds like a great learning and networking experience!

  8. It was – thanks Pawesome Cats!

    It’s always good to attend a conference like this, there’s so much packed into a few days and it sounds like you learnt a lot and had a great time. I too would love to hear about the Canine Separation Anxiety Disorder lecture as I have this issue with one of my dogs. WW Woofs from Teresa and The Dogvine Crew

  10. That’s two votes so far for a blog post about Canine Separation Anxiety Disorder! 🙂 I will definitely plan to write a blog post about separation anxiety. I think that a lot of pet parents have problems with this.

  11. I would return feeling refreshed and inspired. With so many huge advances in medicine, it would really be exciting too. Looks like a very enjoyable time.

  12. It was a very enjoyable experience, Cathy. I love learning new things and I am excited to use my new knowledge. I am especially excited about the things I learned about allergies in dogs which will serve me well as material for the book I am writing about allergies in dogs (which I hope to finish and publish soon!).

  13. Sounds like a great conference, plus that weather must be nice!

  14. Thanks, Talent Hounds. Yes, the weather was beautiful – warm and sunny – and I had a great time.

    Sounds fun! It’s always nice to learn new things and to be excited about implementing them. I like to feel like I’m always learning something new every day. 🙂

  16. It was fun, Rama’s Mama! And that’s a great attitude you have about trying to learn something new every day. I, too, think that is very important as well as enjoyable.

    This looks like it was quite the conference! I’m glad that you were able to get a good balance of learning and fun 🙂

  18. I hope you had fun. 😀 I like the idea of the Vet Detective Experience and think I would enjoy something like that.

  19. The Vet Detective Experience was great fun. It’s a good thing the product reps were willing to give very broad hints sometimes, though. 😉

    Love conferences. I learn so much. I’m leaving for the Florida Animal Control Association conference in about an hour. We’re in Orlando, not nearly as nice as Vegas. I’m excited because we have a day-long seminar with Melinda Merck — a veterinarian! Dr. Merck is a leading forensic vet and has helped with many large animal cruelty cases.

  21. Have a great time at your conference, Kelley!

  22. Sounds like a great time and I bet the weather was nice too. 🙂 Thanks so much for joining the hop.
