About Lawrence
Lawrence Massachusetts is located 25 miles north of Boston just off of Route 495. Built in the 1840's and planned as the nation's first industrial city and testimony to this concept are the massive mill buildings that line the Merrimack River, the striking clock and bell towers and the awesome Great Stone Dam.

The strength of the harnessed Merrimack River and its canals served to fuel the Lawrence mills that produced textiles for the American and European markets. The city was a world leader in production of cotton and woolen textiles by the early 20th century.

Lawrence has always been a multi ethnic and multi cultural city with a high proportion of foreign born residents thereby giving it the name "The Immigrant City"ť. Waves if immigrants coming to Lawrence to work in the mills beginning in the Late 1800's and continuing to the present day have made Lawrence truly a home to everyone,

Today, Lawrence remains an urban center in which 35% of its economy is still based of manufacture. The city is still a hub of textile, apparel and shoe companies such as Malden Mills, KGR, Grieco Brothers, New Balance and Cardinal Shoe. Combined with its affordable space and convenient location, newer companies in technology, health care, and manufacturing have chosen to locate in Lawrence.

Lawrence offers recreational, historical and cultural attractions along with people committed to living and working in a safe environment. The city boasts sailing on the Merrimack, Heritage State Park, art exhibitions and a wide range of cultural activities such as ethnic festivals that celebrate Lawrence's diversity and rich heritage.

“Regenerative Medicine: Did we Finally find the Fountain of Youth?” Lauren Blaeser, DVM, DACVS

Regenerative medicine, the use of the bodies own cells to repair or replace damaged tissues, is proving to be the next generation of orthopedic surgery/medicine. The minimally invasive technique has been used effectively and almost miraculously in equine, canine and human patients to achieve a full return to their peak athletic potential. This two hour lecture will focus on examining the physiology of regenerative medicine, look at the efficacy of different methods of regenerative medicine using evidence based medicine, describe the most common treatments provided and answer the questions regarding the controversy and concerns centered on regenerative medicine.

“Top Tips for Successful Rehabilitation” - Andrea Looney, DVM, DACVAA, CCRP, DACVSMR

This presentation will review general concepts behind rehabilitation for common orthopedic and neurologic cases, as well as the different modalities that can be used for physical rehabilitation of cats and dogs.    Many cases of trauma, degenerative disease, surgical repair and even chronic medical issues require care that evades common surgical fix and pharmaceutical intervention. The listener should gain insight into valuable techniques and tools that may assist with these cases.

“Dexdomitor Use in Practice” - Andrea Looney, DVM, DACVAA, CCRP, DACVSMR

This presentation will attempt to highlight a common pharmaceutical agent used for anesthesia and conscious sedation in practice.  The goal will be to discuss mechanisms of action, indications, contraindications and especially clinical presentations of the drug in use.   The listener should gain better understanding of this and similar drugs within its class, as well as doses, monitoring and even extralabel usage within private practice settings.

"Interpreting the In-house Chemistry Panel" - Krista Vernaleken, VMD

This lecture will discuss the chemistry screen in small animal medicine.  We will discuss the various analytes in the context of typical disease presentations and case examples.  In particular, we will focus on the areas of the chemistry screen that relate to nursing care.

"A Nutritional Approach to Those Pesky Diabetic Felines"- Ed Carlson, CVT, VTS (Nutrition)

Nutrition is an important component in managing our diabetic feline patients. In fact the proper diet can improve glycemic control potentially reducing or eliminating the need for exogenous insulin therapy. Types of diets appropriate and importance of consistency will be discussed. Veterinary technicians play an important roll providing nutritional education to the owners of diabetic patients.

All lectures are CE approved by the MVTA and the NHVTA.
