Wet Vet Weekend 1

Saturday, July 20, 2019, 3:00 PM

Interested in learning more about aquatic veterinary medicine? Love to incorporate wet pets into your clinic’s offerings? Just plain love fish? Then join us July 20-21 or August 17-18, 2019 for the Wet Vet Weekend! The 2-day program will consist of didactic lessons on pertinent fish anatomy and physiology, water quality and its effects on anatomy and physiology and basic aquatic veterinary procedures, including sedation and anesthesia, physical exam, including basic biopsies (skin/mucus, gill and fin), common diseases and treatments, surgical procedures and necropsy. Lab sessions will allow attendees hands on water chemistry evaluation, fish physical exams and diagnostic sampling. Due to the nature of veterinary curriculum and veterinary practice, a shorter program will allow veterinary professionals and students to attend both days without taking away from their earnings or traditional education. Instructor: Jessie M Sanders, DVM, CertAqV. Dr. Sanders is the owner and chief veterinarian at Aquatic Veterinary Services in California. Her practice encompasses privately owned pet fish and aquaculture production. Dr. Sanders is a board member of the American Association of Fish Veterinarian and the Aquatic Veterinary Medicine Committee of the American Veterinary Medical Association. Her mobile veterinary practice, established in 2013, has seen over 350 clients over more than 600 miles of California. Facility: All lectures and labs will be held at SeaCliff Inn in Aptos, CA.
