It is not a small thing when gathering your CE credits that the meetings be orderly, well presented, convenient, accessible.  Cudos to the Colonial Team.  It was an all-around good experience.

What our Exhibitors Say!

I have been a equipment manufacturing design consultant for Snyder Mfg. for over 30 years.  I have been attending the Ralph Lee's meetings for over 20 years of that time.  The Ralph Lee's meetings are different than the standard veterinary conference meetings that are available.  The meetings are designed to be very family friendly.  The attendees and exhibitors are treated with more respect than any other of the veterinary meetings I attend.  The smaller venue will  also give everyone an opportunity to build long term relationships in the industry.

What our Attendees Say!

I plan each year's continuing education requirements around Ralph Lee's Great Smokies Veteirnary Conference.  The program venue is especially nice, this time of year, in Asheville, N.C.  The Lee family (Howie, Martha and the crew) are most accommodating.  They've always made this a pleasurable, meaningful experience.  I secure a copy of the conference notes each trip.  These notes serve as valuable information for me as I care for my patients on a daily basis.  The saddest part, for me, is when the meeting concludes.  Soon, I'll be planning for the 2016 conference.

Central Veterinary Hospital, Knoxville, TNDr. William “Bill” Martin | Central Veterinary Hospital, Knoxville, TN

What our Exhibitors Say!

The Lees' vet meetings are some of the best...and I attend a lot of them! As both a veterinarian and an exhibitor I get the best of both worlds at these events.... Great Continuing Education and Great attendance to the exhibit booth. I attend every one I possibly can.

Practical, Profitable, Adaptable Management of Anesthesia, Pain, Fear, Anxiety, and Stress

SIX LECTURE SESSIONS

Our Big Goal - Reducing Anxiety, Fear, Pain, and Distress for Patients, Clients, and Ourselves

Practical strategies move our practices and profession toward a more fear-free and stress-free experience. The benefits go far beyond the individual patient, bringing value and quality to our lives.

  • Recognize approaches that add safety and efficiency as well as reduce stress
  • Spread the message and encourage all members of our practices to play a role
  • Change the environment through better medicine and common sense behaviors

How Can We Help, Unless We Know How They Hurt?

We recognize the need to assess acute and chronic pain in animals in all areas of clinical veterinary care. Assessment of pain in animals has relied largely on observation of complex behaviors. Quantitative, objective, practical assessment is a long-standing goal that we are finally approaching.

  • Fundamental to reducing fear, anxiety, aggression, and stress

  • We increasingly have the tools, techniques and understanding

  • Patients and clients are providing much of the information and they can tell us more

Opioid-sparing and Opioid-free Best Practices in Pain Management

Old standbys, newly available analgesics, novel methods, and local anesthetics have greatly expanded our options. The opioid shortages, as well as other contemporary factors, increase emphasis on other components of multi-modal analgesia. We’ll summarize significant details that influence best methods. This can change your practice and add substantial value in surgical cases.

  • Balanced or multi-modal analgesia adds success, convenience, and economy

  • Local anesthetics will become valuable in every surgery

  • Pain management is fundamental and highly significant in practice growth

High Risk, Anesthesia for Patients Too Sick for Anesthesia

We give potentially lethal drugs to patients with serious injury and debilitating illness. We are rightly apprehensive, but now successfully manage many patients who would not have had a reasonable chance just a few years ago. We’ll include case-based discussion of potential problems for high-risk patients. Problem-based case management reduces morbidity and mortality for our patients and importantly reduces stress in our hospitals every day.

Recognize special anesthetic concerns

Develop problem-based case management

Prioritize clinical responses

Senior Pet Anesthesia and Pain Management

Although age is not a disease, we do see increased co-morbidities and limited resilience in our older patients. Best practices for these animals include use of readily available agents and techniques. Increased attention to detail and a respect for the fragile homeostasis brings clinical success and client appreciation.

  • Out-patient anesthesia and a robust adaptability in our approach are essential

  • Goals include avoiding stress and maintenance of the patient’s daily routine

  • These patients and clients are among our best and most valued resources

Emergencies, Complications, and Crisis Management in Anesthesia
Things can go wrong. Through case examples, we’ll discuss commonly encountered anesthetic emergencies and complications, how to recognize developing problems, how to turn around a problem situation so early that a crisis is averted, and how best deal with an anesthetic emergency or complication.

  • Anesthesia is not hours of boredom and moments of sheer panic

  • Your investment in infrastructure builds the foundation for success

  • Preparation and staff training pay great dividends

We Proudly Support Our Troops

As many of you know, our family, friends, and veterinary community have recently suffered a great loss at the passing of Jaden Scribner, the daughter of Rob Scriber of ServiceNet Medical X-Ray.
The Scribner Family has created foreverjaden.com to cover some of the costs, however any additional money received will go towards suicide prevention and Anti-Bullying awareness.
We hope that one day we can live in a world where no one has to go through what Jaden endured.
