Important KC CVC Info 2012

I can’t believe it is almost time for the Kansas City Central Veterinary Conference again!  I can’t wait!  I am sad Dr. Nicol will not be making the trip from Australia this year, but excited to see Dr. Roark and (I hope!) Dr. Burcham again and the whole Veterinary Economics and dvm360 crew.  A bunch of coworker friends are coming to KC too, so that will be fun.

I have been saving notes from last year to use for blog posts, and figured I better get the posts I have planned done before the conference is here again!

Here is my contribution for today.  Linezolid is an antibiotic that is $115 PER PILL (+ 1 year inflation, I assume.)  I promise never to prescribe it to your pet.

I am posting this picture of my notes because – not to brag – I thought this was an EXTREMELY cute picture of a pill.

The doc at the top of my notes is Charles Stratton, MD.  He said, in discussing the problem of antibiotic resistance, “Dead bugs don’t mutate.”  The more you think about it, the more brilliant you will realize it is.

I don’t remember if I was drawing it from a picture of him or not, or honestly, what the main point of the talk was or who was talking.  Unfortunately, that happens a lot, and my notes tend to look like this.  I do have a fun time taking notes though.

And sometimes I write down brilliant random quotes.
