A successful series

I’m incredibly happy to report that the “Top 10 nutrition frequently-asked questions” series at Western Veterinary Conference was a success. I had a large, full room, and lots of extra questions and interaction. Thanks to the organizers, and especially to everyone who came to participate!

Not the Las Vegas top 10 list that you’d expect

Tomorrow, I’ll be headed to Las Vegas for The Western Veterinary Conference, and I’ll get to wear one of those fancy “speaker” ribbons on my badge.

I’m presenting a series of talks for veterinarians on my top 10 frequently-asked nutrition questions, an idea from Bill Porte, a friend and veterinary mentor who wouldn’t steer me wrong.

While a top 10 list doesn’t sound particularly novel on the surface, this one actually is. Preparing these talks was part of the inspiration for my “It’s easy to believe that vets don’t know anything about nutrition…” post, and the positive response I got to it reinforces that this series is needed. The novelty is that I’m emphasizing not how to DO nutrition, but how to TALK ABOUT nutrition with pet owners.

Wish me luck, or, if you’re attending the conference, come see me!
