October 17, 2015 CE Meeting
Our October 2015 meeting was a huge success.  Topics included CPR and Respiratory Emergencies, Preventative Health Care, the Fear Free Initiative, NAVTA Information, Updates on Plaque and Tularemia, Horse Wellness, Health Certificates and Animal Transport and Zoo Medicine.  
The NMRVTA would like to thank our speakers for taking the time to share their knowledge and expertise us.  It is very much appreciated!  Our sponsors included Royal Canin Pet Nutrition, Whiting Coffee Roasters, NAVTA and VCA Veterinary Hospitals.  A very big thank-you to all of them.  We would also like to thank all the participants and everyone that helped make the CE day successful.  
Congratulations to all the new officers for the coming year!

Avaliable CE notes are posted on the members page of our website.

With great sadness the NMRVTA has learned of the passing of Lorraine Wyant, RVT.  Lorraine was instrumental and a great champion of the NMRVTA organization and development.  She graduated from Purdue Unversity with an Associates degree in Veterinary Technology and loved being an RVT. She has been licensed in New Mexico since 1988.
Lorraine loved her family, friends, caring for animals, especially cats and horses, and western music and dancing.  Lorraine also loved her friends at church and often played her flute for services.
