A Message From the President
Spring is here! The grass is green, the flowers are blooming and life reemerges from the coldness of winter. This is a great time to be a veterinarian. We see the new additions to our clients’ families as they bring in their new puppies and kittens. We prepare for our busier season with the coming of longer days and great outdoor activities.
As we reflect on 2015 and look forward to a new year, the KCVMA would like to express our appreciation for each of our members. Our goals as an organization are simple - to support and celebrate Kansas City-area veterinarians through continuing education and networking opportunities, and advocate on behalf of our members and our profession. Your membership in the KCVMA allows us to strive for the best quality speakers, venues and resources possible. Without you, the KCVMA wouldn’t be what it is today.

KCVMA 2016 Membership Renewal Reminder
Animal Health Community Responds in Wake of Kansas Wildfires
By: Jen Nigro
Farmers and ranchers in six Kansas counties are recovering from the devastating effects of wildfires that swept across the southern part of the state. Hardest hit was Barber County, where nearly 400,000 acres succumbed to a blaze that started in northern Oklahoma. Comanche County lost an additional 41,000 acres in the same fire. It was the biggest wildfire in Kansas history, prompting Governor Sam Brownback to declare a state of emergency on March 23. Unrelated fires in Geary, Wabaunsee, Riley and Morton counties took nearly 12,000 more acres.
