Emergency Veterinary Care

The first IVECCS was held Sept 11–14, 1988 in San Antonio and now, 20 years later we presented the 14th IVECCS at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge near Scottsdale, AZ. This intense clinical symposium featured comprehensive programs on small animals, exotics and large animals for veterinarians, technicians and hospital staff.

IVECCS is unsurpassed in CE quality and clinical relevance. Attendee surveys year after year validate the quality and registrant satisfaction: 98 percent of registrants said they would recommend IVECCS to a colleague and 94 percent of all attendees indicate they would attend another IVECCS within two years.

The theme for IVECCS 2008 was "Imaging for Emergency & Critical Care," which emphasized the latest in technology and practical application to optimize clinical patient care. Considering this year was our 20th anniversary, we also held a special lecture series called "Then and Now," that chronicled the evolution of key facets of emergency & critical care practice.
