Winner! Innovetive Petcare Announces 2019 Conference Giveaway Winner

Over the course of 2018, Innovetive Petcare hosted a veterinary conference giveaway. Representatives from our team attended four veterinary conferences this year: The Texas Veterinary Medical Association conference in The Woodlands, TX The VECCS conference in New Orleans, LA Southwest Veterinary Symposium in San Antonio, TX ACVS Surgery Summit in Phoenix, AZ Veterinarians and technicians at each of these conferences were invited to submit their name for a chance to win a conference pass to one of four veterinary conferences in 2019, and we drew our winner on Dec. 6, 2018! Innovetive Petcare is a huge proponent of continuing education for veterinarians and veterinary technicians, and we back that idea in several ways. Many of our hospitals, including Animal Emergency & Specialty Centers in Tennessee and Veterinary Referral Hospital of Hickory in North Carolina, host free continuing education events for veterinarians and veterinary technicians throughout the year. The events are open not only to our employees, but any local veterinarians and technicians. Additionally, all Innovetive Petcare employees are given a continuing education allowance each year, plus paid days off for continuing education, and we reimburse partial tuition costs for company-approved professional development. And finally, Innovetive Petcare has its own unique online training tool, Innovetive University. Employees can log on and complete RACE-approved courses at their leisure, allowing them to continue to grow and learn while being present in their practice daily. Our 2018 giveaway further reinforces our strong belief in continuing education. “One of Innovetive Petcare’s core values is providing training and development opportunities to all of our employees,” said Mark Ziller, president and CEO of Innovetive Petcare. “We are pleased to have recently awarded our winner a trip to the conference of her choice.  I hope our winner finds the conference informative and thought-provoking, and comes back with information to share with colleagues. Those types of opportunities to learn and share information and best practices are what Innovetive Petcare is all about.” Are you the winner? Watch our video to find out!
