Roo Team
May 30, 2024

There’s nothing more important to us than the veterinary community, and here at Roo, we’re always looking to give back. That’s why we’re constantly hosting free CE events and sponsoring even more CE opportunities through various local veterinary organizations. You’ll also find us at every vet conference under the sun! Stop by and say hi, we’re always looking to get to know amazing vets, techs, and practice managers!

Don't forget, you can get 25% off any dvm360 Fetch Conference for the rest of the year by entering the code “ROO25" at checkout. And we've got more exciting discounts coming your way soon (spoilers).
