Reception draws large crowd to new hospital

This year’s Referral Veterinarian Appreciation Day, held at the Gainesville Hilton, brought 257 small and large animal practitioners to Gainesville for a full day of continuing education, including a new laboratory in CPR led by UF’s emergency and critical care specialists. Following the event, a reception, which also served as a retirement send-off for Dr. Colin Burrows, was held inside the atrium of the UF Small Animal Hospital. Below are a few photos from that gathering.
