Arnoczky’s presentation is made possible through the Niemeyer Visiting Lecture Series endowment. The Niemeyers are long-time friends of the MU College of Veterinary Medicine and have been instrumental in its growth to an institution that stands among the best in the nation.
The College is offering one continuing education credit recognized by the Missouri Veterinary Medical Board for attendance at the seminar. Practicing veterinarians and certified veterinary technicians are welcome to attend and will be provided with a certificate of continuing education for their records.
To defray the cost of CE certification, it is suggested that attendees make a donation of $25 to be paid by check to the University of Missouri – Silent Partners Fund of the VMTH. This fund helps defray the cost of care for animals whose owners have demonstrated financial difficulty but whose pet could be significantly helped with medical care.
