Dragon Veterinary will be attending the 2nd Annual Veterinary Innovation Summit (VIS) in Texas. VIS is all about fresh perspectives and challenging the status quo. The learning environment at VIS allows veterinarians in all stages of their careers to learn how to adapt to the changes in the profession. Technology and innovation will be a major focus at VIS.
Continuing education is shaped by teaching veterinarians how to react to the changes they are facing. Engineers, entrepreneurs and regulators will all be present at the summit.
There are three themes surrounding this year’s summit.
- Patients like Us
- The Human Animal Bond
- Veterinarians Serving Society
VIS has found numerous dedicated keynote speakers to address each of the themes. The talks help to expand the perspectives and minds of the participants. Smaller breakout sessions will help participants turn all of the ideas they have heard about into action.
Dragon Veterinary is excited to be at VIS as a start-up company. We have invested our time into figuring how we can save veterinarians hours daily. We are aware that veterinarians lead busy lives and are on the go from the moment they get to the clinic in the morning until the moment they leave. Some veterinarians find they are staying late to catch up on paperwork or bringing work home with them.
Dragon Veterinary dictation software can eliminate a large portion of work veterinarians face after seeing patients. Whether it be writing up postop reports or documenting a patient’s annual check-up, veterinarians can save a lot of time.
Let us take the time to show you how our software can save you time on required tasks. We understand the hard work and care that veterinarians spend on each and every patient they see. We at Dragon Veterinary want to eliminate the stress associated with typing so veterinarians have more free time to spend doing what matters.
Drop by for a LIVE Demo and let us show you how our software works!

90th Annual Western Veterinary Conference
March 4th-8th 2018
"Passion Meets Education"
Being surrounded by education, innovation and inspiration are only a few of the reasons why we at Dragon Veterinary are excited to attend WVC as an exhibitor for the second year in a row!
WVC brands itself as being comprehensive, progressive and practical. Dragon Veterinary is excited to be part of a large group of forward thinkers who are continually improving as professionals.
WVC was founded by Logan Utah, formally known as Intermountain Sanitary Association. In 1965 the name of the conference was changed to Western Veterinary Conference (WVC). WVC is held in Las Vegas and this year will be the 90th Annual Conference.
There will be over 14,000 participants coming from 50 states, 6 continents, and 43 countries across the world.
WVC is dedicated to continuous education. In addition to the annual conference, WVC offers courses onsite, offsite and digitally year-round.
WVC will be hosted at Oquendo Center. The center has 66,000 square feet including a 190-seat theatre. The venue has clinical and diagnostic laboratories allowing for hands on learning.
WVC looks like it will be an action-packed week with lots going on every minute. WVC has worked hard to develop programming that will catch everyone's attention. There are learning opportunities specific to DVMs as well as Technicians and Practice Managers.
There are numerous speakers who have been asked to speak at the event to foster the learning and growth of all participants. Various Continuing Education and Hands-on Labs allow attendees to pick and choose based on their interests.
When Dragon Veterinary goes to a trade show we are always very excited to see the other exhibitors around our booth and what they have to offer. There is an endless amount of innovation and forward thinking surrounding us at every moment. We always leave every trade show confident and thinking about the future of our product.
In addition to all of the learning and growth opportunities for those practicing veterinary medicine or working in a clinic, WVC is always aware that it is important to throw a little adventure and spontaneity into each day. WVC has planned many offsite excursions that appeal to the interests of many attendees. Some of the events include: Grand Canyon West Rim Tour, 5km Fun Run, Boulder City Zip Line Tour, Sights and Sounds of Las Vegas and many more!
Come by our booth for a demo and more information on our product. As a growing company this year we are excited to have a brand-new booth and even more displays!
Dragon Veterinary cannot wait to see everyone in Vegas!
Veterinary Meeting & Expo
Your Education. Your Experience, Your Conference.
“Inspired by your passion, your commitment and your energy, VMX, formerly the NAVC Conference, presents top-tier continuing education from world-renowned presenters, unparalleled professional development and networking, diverse exhibits, and exhilarating events on one centralized campus at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC).”
Dragon Veterinary will be travelling to the warm Orlando Florida in early February for Veterinary Meeting & Expo (VMX). Attendees of VMX will come from over 80 countries. With more than 9,000 veterinarians, veterinary technicians and practice managers and 4,855 exhibitors, VMX will be an excellent opportunity for learning, networking, innovation and exploration.
We attended this event last year for the first time and were amazed at the innovative and supportive atmosphere. In the past VMX, formally NAVC, has been held across two locations due to the growing number of attendees. The new venue, the Orange County Convention Centre (OCCC), is an enormous venue and segways were even offered in order to make venturing from one end of the centre to the other more accessible.
Attending this event last year, we received more than we bargained for. Not only did we have the opportunity to grow our business but through networking, we also received feedback that helped us to understand the technological needs of veterinarians and how we can continue to improve our product.
At VMX there will be numerous lectures, hands on labs, and luncheons related to the diverse world of animal medicine. Emergency and medical critical care, hospital design, customer service and animal welfare are a few of the many learning opportunities available to those attending VMX. Dragon Veterinary has the ability to support their veterinarians practice leaving more time for innovation and exploration in the ever-changing field of animal medicine.
After another year of hard work at Dragon Veterinary we are proud to announce that we have grown our team as well as we are now offering a new version of Dragon Medical to accompany the Dragon Veterinary Package. We have also expanded internationally and now have resellers who are helping with the distribution of our product across the globe.
Visit us at VMX for a demonstration, special offers and to hear more about our product and how the software can easily integrate with your existing systems.
We look forward to seeing you in the Sunshine State!

You can find a detailed schedule here: https://convention.aaep.org/sessions
Meanwhile, warm and dry San Antonio is a good spot to find yourself in November. There’s plenty to do. Check out some ideas here: http://visitsanantonio.com/
While you’re in San Antonio, you can visit the Dragon Veterinary team and learn how our voice dictation software can be incorporated into all aspects of your practice to cut back drastically on your day to day screen time.
The American College of Veterinary Pathologists and the American Society for Veterinary Clinical Pathology will be teaming up for their 2017 concurrent annual meeting.
Held Nov. 4-8 at the Vancouver Convention Centre in British Columbia, Canada, brings together the leading thinkers of the industry.
“Take this opportunity to network, collaborate, share, and discuss common scientific interests with your colleagues from three esteemed professional organizations,” write conference organizers.
“The program will include a mix of joint and separate curricula, including scientific sessions, poster presentations, workshops, career development, receptions, and other events.”
And it’s in British Columbia – home of the Canadian portion of the Rocky Mountains, old growth rain forest, killer whales and a lot of people who like to eat kale.
All, except for the last demographic, are good reasons to come to Canada.
It doesn’t even get actually cold in Vancouver … just sort of rainy and miserable sometimes.
While there, you can meet with us.
We’re Canadian, but we’re from way over on the East Coast … where fewer people eat kale and generally are way more interesting.
And we at Dragon Veterinary have developed a voice recognition software that will allow you to manage your practice and record patient data without using a keyboard.
Our speech recognition software is specially tailored for the veterinary profession.
We can tell you all about it in Vancouver in November.
And one more thing – B.C. has grizzly bears and mountain goats and cougars.
Here we come

And you get to be in The Big Smoke and pretend you’re in a Woody Allen movie.
A few suggestions for your time in New York:
- Eat some street meat and try to guess what it is composed of.
- Go to a New York Yankees game and boo.
- Soak up being in one of the world’s great cities.
- Visit the Dragon Veterinary booth and learn about how our speech dictation software make your practice more efficient.
The American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) will be prowling around Denver, Colorado, Oct. 19-22.
The AAFP conference prides itself (pardon the pun) on offering learning tracks at its conference that meet the needs of attendees in the varied stages of their professional development.
This year’s theme is ‘Feline Infectious Diseases and Pediatrics’.
“This conference will join together veterinary healthcare professionals who are dedicated to increasing their feline knowledge and who are passionate about elevating the standard of care for cats,” state organizers.
The AAFP have applied for 48.5 hours of continuing education (CE) credits for Veterinarians and Technicians (maximum of 31 for any individual vet or technician). A link to the program can be found here: https://www.catvets.com/education/conference/educational-program-2017
While in Denver, you might try advising the locals that their nickname ‘Mile High City’ is erroneous because Denver is actually 5,278 feet above sea level (2 feet short of a mile).
Alternatively, you can enjoy the former gold-rush city that stands at the entrance to the Rocky Mountains. You can check out some ideas here: https://www.denver.org/
You can also come and meet us!
Dragon Veterinary will be there with our voice recognition software specially tailored to the veterinary industry. Our software works hand-in glove with your practice management system to allow you do all your data entry – from patient reports to prescriptions and reminder notes – with your Nuance Dictaphone instead of a keyboard.
Plus we’re just nice to talk to and we like cats.
