“This year’s Exotic Companion Mammal Symposium was a great success,” said Dr. Micah Kohles, Director of Technical Services for Oxbow Animal Health. “Dr. Hess and the entire staff at Veterinary Center for Birds & Exotics were wonderful hosts and the day’s lectures generated a compelling, daylong conversation between presenters and attendees regarding exotics and exotic health.
