We are currently accepting submissions for IVECCS 2017 consideration.
The Mission of VECCS is to provide a forum for collaboration of all individuals interested and involved with veterinary emergency and critical care medicine and surgery, and, to promote the advancement of knowledge and high standards of practice in veterinary emergency medicine and critical patient care.  IVECCS is the place where this Mission is exemplified.
The IVECCS Program Committee is seeking proposals for presentation topics and ideas for our 2017 IVECC Symposium, September 13-17 in Nashville, TN.  Veterinary and Technician Experts in Emergency and Critical Care, Small and Large Animal Surgery and Medicine, Practice Management, and Exotic Medicine and Surgery are invited to submit their proposed topics and course descriptions for lecture, workshop and lab sessions.  The focus of the 2017 IVECCS will be on Fluid Therapy in Emergency & Critical Care, however, the program will cover a wide variety of topics with a wide variety of levels to satisfy the needs of veterinary and technician specialists, advanced clinicians and technicians, general practitioners, and support staff dedicated to or having a special interest in Emergency and Critical Care.
