Another Successful Annual Advanced Meeting has finished we were blessed with beautiful weather and the enjoyment of seeing our colleagues and friends!

We would like to extend a big THANK YOU to all of our attendees for joining us; to our speakers for all their hard work Chris Mattson Barrett, Cynthia Lankenau, Jane Laura Doyle, Madalyn Ward, Mary Ann Skillman, Linda Dworak, Todd Cooney, Wendy Jensen, and Richard Pitcairn; to Susan Pitcairn for her countless hours organizing our beautiful photo and video alumni montage for the 30th Anniversary Celebration; and to our dedicated conference committee.

We all look forward to seeing you next year in 2024 at the 22nd Annual Advanced Meeting in Veterinary homeopathy: Wednesday, February 21st – Sunday, February 25th, 2024, where we will return to our longer three and a half day meeting format (Thursday through Sunday) plus an additional optional day on the Wednesday to start the conference.

This year (2023) was the 21st Annual Advanced Meeting in Veterinary Homeopathy which was held on Wednesday, February 15th – Sunday, February 19th, 2023, at the beautiful Saguaro Lake Ranch, Mesa, AZ. The main meeting was Thursday 16 – Saturday 18th, with Wednesday 15th starting the conference with an optional additional conference day and Sunday 19th offering breakfast, morning discussion, and lunch as attendees wind down to travel home.

The 2023 Annual Meeting was unique as 2023 celebrates the 30 years since the first class of the Professional Course in Eugene, Oregon, graduated and started their homeopathic careers.

The 30th Anniversary Celebration was the theme for the meeting — to honor our early graduates. We carried this theme through our presenters, by featuring graduates of the first classes for the speaker list sharing their three decades of expertise. We enjoyed the collective harvest of extraordinary experiences from such experienced practitioners sharing their work. This special event also celebrated with an alumni reunion including photo and video montage.

Each year the conference features lectures by Dr. Richard Pitcairn, PIVH faculty, and a selection of guest speakers. Topics vary from year to year but include theory, case study, and practice management specific to the homeopathic veterinary practice.

The Annual Meeting is routinely held in February at the Saguaro Lake Ranch in the mountains outside of Phoenix, AZ. This beautiful location provides an excellent opportunity for focused study, catching up with friends and old classmates, relaxation, hiking, swimming, and connecting with other veterinary homeopaths in the intimate atmosphere of the Saguaro Lake Ranch. All meals are included with lodging and are served in a shared dining style, providing exceptional fare and provide a health concisous retreat to rejunvinate both body and mind. If desired, there is also the option of staying off-site and just attending the meeting and elected meals.
