This is a No Host event. We suggest you show up at least 15 minutes before the event begins in order to get a good seat.
Local veterinarian Scott D. Shaw, DVM will conduct a FREE session about dog first aid in general and in particular about the types of injuries that might befall our canine friends while hiking out in the wilderness.
Dr. Shaw has been practicing veterinary medicine for over twenty-nine years. During the first part of his career he attended classes on internal medicine, advanced dentistry and orthopedic surgical techniques. For the past twelve years he has expanded his education into holistic medicine. He finished the professional veterinary homeopathy course in 2000. He became a certified veterinary acupuncturist in 2004. Since then he has taken many classes on advanced acupuncture techniques, Chinese herbal medicine and food therapy. He feels the blending of western and eastern medicine creates a balance for optimum patient care.
Dr. Shaw will have dog first aid kits for sale at this meeting. The first aid kits cost $15. The proceeds will benefit the local chapter of the Boy Scouts.
In addition to the valuable canine first aid information being offered by Dr. Shaw, there will be a raffle to benefit two local non-profit organizations, Bend Spay & Neuter Project and Battle Buddies.
No dogs at this event, please.
