Online Happy Hour

Monday April 21 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Join Dr. Andy Fleming (President) and Dr. Bob Weiner (Past-President) for an online happy hour.

Just drop-in online whenever you want for however long you want. Bring along a drink or two, and have an opportunity to touch base with other veterinarians on what it is like for them. Maybe share some challenges, or some bright spots. Or just relax and enjoy the company.

Its our first try at this, so we will make it up as we go along, and find out what makes this a worthwhile opportunity for connection within the NY veterinary profession.

  • Dear Dr.Atkinson, A follow up if you don't mind. We (my husband is a vet as well) weren't aware when I posted the question that these two were from a pool of thousands of tests. We assumed (wrongly) that few companion animals were being tested as per ...

  • Hi Dr.Atkinson, Just a quick question about these tests in light of the two New York state positive cats. Have you heard why these two covid positive cats in New York were tested? My understanding from the CDC, USDA, AVMA, etc..., was that they were ...
