How many hours of continuing education (CE) can I get?
The number of hours you get from a Fetch dvm360® Conference depends on the location, but typically you can expect a maximum of 28 hours at an event.
Is Fetch dvm360® Conference education approved by the Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE)?
For the past 30 years (from when we were CVC to the present), all our conference education has been RACE approved. Programs are submitted and approved for RACE accreditation closer to the event.
Note: Check with your state’s board for the number of hours it approves. Some boards have limitations on the number of hours accepted in certain categories and/or restrictions on certain methods of CE delivery.
What about other licenses?
Fetch dvm360® Conference is approved to provide CE to New York State licenses.
Our practice management courses are also applicable toward the CE requirement for the Certified Veterinary Practice Manager program offered by the Veterinary Hospital Managers Association.
What if I’m licensed in Texas?
Veterinarians licensed in Texas need to track each seminar hour attended on a CE checklist. After you pick up your badge and materials, stop by the information desk to sign in and pick up your Texas CE checklist. Before you leave the conference on your final day, you must return your completed checklist to the registration desk and sign out on the sheet provided. A Fetch dvm360® staff member will verify your hours and give you a signed CE Certificate of Attendance. This is important. Don’t leave without your certificate — we can’t mail it to you.
Where do I get my CE form?
You can get your CE form in a few different ways. You’ll find a printed copy in the back of your Go Guide (located in the tote you get at registration). You’ll also find a link to the CE form through the Fetch dvm360® app. A link to a fillable PDF of the CE form can also be emailed to you after you attend the conference.
What is the cost?
It depends on when you register, what your role is and how long you want to attend. The earlier you register, the more money you’ll save.
See registration forms and the online registration system for a more specific breakdown.
Where can I see the schedule?
You’ll find the most up-to-date version of the schedule online.
Once you’ve registered, roughly a month from the show, the Fetch dvm360® app will also include the complete list of sessions available. Using the app, you can plan and save all the sessions you’re interested in. After you register on-site, you’ll also receive a printed version of the schedule. But remember that details often change after the guide has been sent to the printer, so double-check check your information against the electronic schedules.
What are registration desk hours?
Hours will vary depending on location, but in general, the registration desk will open in the morning the conference begins. It will always open before morning sessions start and remain open for a short time after sessions end for the evening.
What are exhibit hall hours?
Exhibit hall hours will vary depending on location, but you can expect the hall to open in the morning on the second day of the conference. It will stay open until the afternoon of the last day of the conference. Your conference materials and emails will give you exact times for your location.
What is your cancellation policy for attendees?
To receive a full refund for a Fetch dvm360® conference, minus a $50 processing fee, your registration cancellation must be made in writing, by fax, email or mail, postmarked by a specific date for each No refunds will be issued for conference or special program registrations after the cancellation date for each conference.

Can I bring a spouse, friend or child?
