International Veterinary Seminars is happy to present ‘The Mike and Howie Show’!

For those of you who are frequent IVS attendee’s you will recall when Mike and Howie were featured as the IVS ‘combo’ speakers for a variety of medical and surgical topics. Well we are excited to be able to present this dynamic duo once again to provide you with the best veterinary CE available.

Mike and Howie have been practicing Veterinary Medicine together at Colorado State University for over 25 years. Mike is the Medicine side of things and Howie is the Surgery side of things. Together, with over 50 years of combined experience, they have treated hundreds of cases and have developed many practical procedures and techniques for treating many medical and surgical disorders in dogs and cats. In addition, the combination of an internist and a surgeon always provides you with a balanced approach.

Mike and Howie have promised me that they will include many of their ‘old tried and true’ techniques as well as updating the group on some of the ‘new and innovative’ techniques they have recently developed for the management of many common canine and feline medical and surgical problems.

We are very excited to get these two ‘Global Educators’ back together again. If you are a frequent flyer with IVS then you know this seminar is not to be missed. If you are new to IVS this is your chance to gain valuable practical knowledge from two world authorities on the stage together!
