Dr. Sue mentions on her fb page that she will lecture on metronomics sunday 7/15 at 2:00 pm at AVMA Convention... anyone going to Colorado? The page says you can join her for the lectures.. Not sure just how to join though???
Yes she is speaking at the annual American Veterinary Medical Association conference. You need to be a registered attendee to go to the lecture. I've seen her speak, she is a dynamo!
I wish we could be there. Perhaps next year if the Foundation has the funds we will attend their gathering in Washington DC. Anytime you can attend a veterinary conference there are lots of interesting things to learn.
By the way, you should check out Dr. Sue & Dr. Dressler's video presentations, I think you will find them very helpful, they will probably provide answers to many of your questions. See:

thanks for the tip.. I have seen them.. Because they are from 2012,,, I pause...
Oh wow so you are going to the conference? Would love to hear more if that's the case. My guess is that Dr. Sue is giving her metronomics presentation to the audience, which is the one I reported on last year from the WVC conference.
Glad you have seen the videos. Unfortunately not a lot has changed in osteosarcoma treatments since 2012. Research is always happening of course but as far as proven therapies prescribed by veterinarians, there's not a whole lot that's developed aside from the Canine Osteosarcoma Vaccine. We would love for that to change of course.
Just came across this news story about her presentation:

A newer option called metronomic chemotherapy offers an alternative treatment, explained cancer specialist Sue Ettinger, DVM, DACVIM (oncology), at the 2018 American Veterinary Medical Association Convention in Denver, Colorado. - READ MORE
