Join us January 15-16, 2011 for the 6th Annual Camelid Symposium at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in Davis, California. 

We bring in industry experts each year to present two days of seminars in three tracks:

  • Basic Owner track
  • Advanced Owner track
  • Veterinarian track, with CE credits for Veterinarians and Vet Techs

This year we are pleased to present Dr. Claire Whitehead from the United Kingdom. Dr. Michelle Kutzler and Dr. Nancy Irlbeck will share their expertise with us, and Dr. Steve Hull will be returning to the symposium. In addition, the incomparable Dr. Murray Fowler, as well as equine surgeon Dr. Julie Dechant, eye specialist Dr. David Maggs, and camelid practitioner Dr. Danny Mora, will be giving presentations.
