Vet to Vet

Some of the most compelling conversations – and some of the best learning – happens when we gather round the table to chat. That’s why – for the first time – we’re offering Vet to Vet roundtable discussions at this year’s convention. Our goal is to provide you with an informal setting where you can exchange information and insights with your colleagues about topics that matter to you.

Held over two days – Sunday, Aug. 1 and Monday, Aug. 2 – the roundtable discussions will focus on topics such as animal welfare issues and questions, how to preserve your profitability while still providing good work-life balance for your staff and how you can weigh the desire for new technology at your practice against practical need. These discussions will flow at your speed, be led by a moderator, and are a great way for you to connect with your peers on topics of mutual interest. So if you’re coming to Atlanta, make sure you stop by for great networking and some stimulating conversation. As a bonus, you can earn CE credit for attending.

  1. Hi, Kelly. The AVMA does not provide financial assistance in situations such as the one you shared with us. However, there are other organizations that may be able to help you.

    One option is to check with your veterinarian to see if he or she is a member of the American Animal Hospital Association and has access to the group’s Helping Pets Fund.

    Two other groups to check are:
    United Animal Nations, based in Sacramento, Calif., at (916) 429-2457 or
    The Pet Fund, also based in Sacramento, at (916) 443-6007 or

    Also, your state veterinary medical association may know of any local organizations that can help financially. You can contact the California Veterinary Medical Association at (800) 655-2862 or at

  2. I am looking for help with bills on a dog we adopted / rescued from roomates. He is only about 4-5 months old and in pain and my husband and I just cantg afford the bills and dont know what to do for him. We took him to a vet and have an idea of what she thinks is going on but we wont know until we can come up with the money for Xrays. We live in the San diego area and everything is so expensive and no vet we have talked to is willing to work with us at least not yet. We want to do right by this puppy and cry for him because we know he is hurting but dont know what to do. Can someone please tell us what we can do to help us help him?
