What our speakers and attendees have to say:

Jenifer Chatfield, DVM, DACZM, DACVPM

The CON was fabulous because it was different - we sat at round tables during lectures so it was easy to converse between lectures and so much more comfortable than rows and rows of chairs.  The activities were more active!  We formed teams and it really made the CE more fun and impactful.  Overall, the CON was such a departure from the freezing cold ball rooms with low lighting and silence among strangers!

Dr Michele Broadhurst DC,CCSP, FIAMA,CCRP, CAC IVCA

Vets against Insanity was a great intimate conference. It gave participants the ability to ask questions and get involved in their learning experience. The lecturers were excellent and diverse and addressed  the clinical and non clinical aspects of practice. It was an honor to speak at the first CON!

2022 CON Attendees:

"I loved going in knowing that the people were self-selected for being somewhat irreverent. That led to instant connections and shared humor. When coupled with the intimate nature of the event, it made for something entirely special."

"I felt like I was important and not just another paying vet."

"I loved the comradery! From the speakers to the attendees, everyone had an awesome attitude!"
