2023 Winter Meeting


Updates in Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care for the
General Practitioner

February 4th-5th, 2023

The Inland Empire Veterinary Medical Association is proud to present our 29th annual winter meeting. Like last year it will be held at ***Silver Mountain Resort*** in beautiful Kellogg, Idaho https://silvermt.com/. From the con- ference room the slopes are just an amazing gondola ride away. There is also an indoor water park at the resort! Silver Mountain Resort is located about 1.5 hours east of Spokane. It is easily accessed by I90 and close to the his- toric town of Wallace, Idaho. The meeting starts with a hearty breakfast at 7:30 followed by four hours of lecture each day and then you will be free to ski (or float in the lazy river) by noon. Vendors of products and equipment will be present to answer your questions and product needs. There is also a hosted wine and cheese event Saturday evening!
