AgriLife Extension to host High Plains Veterinary Symposium in Lubbock

LUBBOCK – The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the South Plains Veterinary Medical Association will conduct the High Plains Veterinary Symposium from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Oct. 20.

The continuing education training for veterinarians will offer six hours of credit and will be conducted at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center located at 1102 E. Farm-to-Market 1294, Lubbock. Feline medicine will be the day’s focus, said Robert Scott, AgriLife Extension agent in Lubbock County.

Individual preregistration is $25 by Oct. 14 and $50 thereafter. For more information and to preregister, contact Scott at 806-775-1680, rj-scott@tamu.edu .

“We’re trying to get the word out early, because we realize veterinarians often must make plans to have their practices covered by others while attending these events,” Scott said. “We’re even having it on a Sunday, so it won’t conflict with vets’ office hours. If this event is successful, we’d like to plan similar events on an annual basis in the future.”

Scott said Dr. Gary D. Norsworthy, owner of Alamo Feline Health Center in San Antonio, will keynote the symposium. Norsworthy has been in private practice for 40 years, 25 in small animal practice and 15 in feline practice. He is a frequent lecturer on feline diseases and is the editor and major author of six textbooks on felines.
