The International Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Symposium (IVECCS) offers the highest-quality and practical continuing education. IVECCS is attended by the world’s most progressive veterinarians, technicians and practice managers representing specialty/referral practice, general practice, academia, and research institutions.
