    What is Ignite Veterinary Solutions? What is the LSVA online portal?

    Ignite Veterinary Solutions is an online community of veterinary professionals. Ignite offers veterinarians 24/7 access to specialists for guidance on cases, as well as valuable resources for the practice, and support and education for all other members of the veterinary team.

    When you register for a Lone Star Veterinary Academy program, you'll gain access to our private group page within Ignite Workplace. Workplace functions just like a private Facebook® group, but gives you the ability to upload documents of all types - not just photo or video! We'll post course notes, videos, and event info there. If you're stuck on a case after the program, hop on the Workplace app or go the website and ask a question! Dr. Boss and other attendees will be able to view and respond.

    By providing this 30 day post-conference lifeline, we're aiming to make learning stick. We've waved our magic wand and turned 9 hours of your time into 30 days! (Now, if only we could do the same thing for vacations...) Learn More.
