Dear HCVMA Member, 

We survived the first month of 2021 and while we will still have a few months more of this ongoing pandemic challenge, there is light at the end of the tunnel!

Hopefully everyone enjoyed the helpful information from Dr. Klotz’s talk on “Proper Prescribing and Compounding for Veterinarians”.  Dr. Wagner’s ophthalmology “Ask the Experts” Zoom meeting was also well received and will hopefully provide a different experience for our members. 

Ag Workers Insurance will be sponsoring our speakers from TAMU VMTH this month.  Drs. Carly Patterson and Amy Savarino will present a 2 hour CE intitled “Opioids and Controlled Drugs:  How to stay out of jail”.  It will fulfill the new opioid CE requirement by the state board.  This Zoom meeting will be held on Thursday, February 11, 2021, at 7pm.  

The following Thursday, February 18, 2021, at 7pm will be our next “Ask the Experts” event.  Dr. Caleb Hudson will host an interactive Zoom call on orthopedics and will provide 1 hour of CE.  If you have any photos or videos you would like to submit ahead of time, please send them to 

The links to join both Zoom calls will be emailed to current HCVMA members.  Please be sure to update your email address when paying 2021 dues at
