Rescheduled! A Note From Our LSVA Team
Hello Friends and Colleagues,
Thank you for being part of Lone Star Veterinary Academy! Your support and kindness through the past two months have been a bright spot in otherwise trying times. As you know, COVID-19 is continuing to impact social gatherings and businesses across the world. We remain committed to serving our veterinary community throughout the pandemic, even if the shape of our meetings must change.
We’ve continued to closely monitor Local, State, and National Guidelines, and it has become clear that those orders will continue to prevent or radically change public gatherings well into the summer.
After consulting with our Venue Coordinators and Our Speakers, Dr. Couto and Dr. Alleman, we have decided to reschedule LSVA’s July Clinical Pathology Seminar to July 10-11, 2021. We know this news may be disappointing. Please know that our decision was not made lightly. Our #1 priority will always be to provide continuing education experiences of the highest quality.
This program is designed to create thought-provoking discussions and fun interactions between our speakers and attendees – something that simply could not be replicated online. Rather than follow through with a sub-par program, we will look forward to an exceptional in-person workshop next year!
Clinical Pathology, Simplified
This comprehensive course encompasses a wide array of laboratory diagnostics with emphasis on application in a small animal private practice setting. This weekend will focus on hematology, cytology, oncology, biochemical profiles, and urinalysis. Join us for informative and interactive sessions, which will include traditional lectures, case-based presentations, and occasional bad jokes from old friends and accomplished speaking duo, Dr. Rick Alleman and Dr. Guillermo Couto.

- tissue aspiration cytology of tumors, lymph nodes and other important organs and body fluids

“This is the first in person CE that I have attending since covid. This experience went beyond my expectations.” – LSVA In Person Workshop Attendee
“I think the speakers were stupendous. I just loved these presentations” – LSVA Webinar Attendee
“Just wanna say these talks are excellent, Dr Jones and Dr Atkins both have such a command of this topic for obvious reasons. It reminds me of the best professors in Vet School who would speak with complete authority because they knew the topic cold.” – LSVA Webinar Attendee
Top notch, fantastic. I was really dreading this because I dislike CE environments but really enjoyed.
I learned SO much about myself and feel empowered to make real changes in my life.
I felt it was very well organized and I felt taken care of. Julie was an excellent speaker and I enjoyed the content very much.
I couldn’t imagine the program running any smoother.
More dates! More events! Love these and I will be back! THANK YOU!
Excellent conference!!! Much more intimate than the large conferences.
I love that we wrote and expressed rather than just taking in material. This was interactive for real.
