Leaders from the American Veterinary Medical Association and a Pennsylvania practice owner discussed current issues in veterinary medicine, including workforce needs, education and telemedicine.

Lawmakers are also considering banning noncompete contract clauses, while activity on noneconomic damages has declined in recent years.
