In between getting smart at conferences I concentrate on getting free stuff. Vets don’t get all the free samples like human doctors do. But we try to make up for it at conferences. One year I managed to get enough samples of bird food that I didn’t have to buy any food for Ozzie for 6 months.
This is a smaller conference than some other ones I’ve attended so the loot isn’t that good. But I have managed to pick up lots of dog and cat treats, a bottle of dog mouth wash, pens, paper, a free 4 minute chair massage, a water bottle, wound cream, eye drops, and tear stain removal drops. That’s just off the top of my head. There may be more. I’m not forgetting about my decluttering goal either. I’m not taking things that I don’t really want. So no free stuffed animals for me. I’m considering that good self control. But I will be going back for another free massage tomorrow!
