formerly Lone Star Vet Academy

CE With Space To Be You™
Say goodbye to awkward, overcrowded conferences and hello to comfortable CE programs that give YOU the space to connect and feel heard.
IntroVet™ (formerly known as Lone Star Veterinary Academy) was founded in 2018 by an introverted veterinarian who struggled with the busy and crowded nature of larger vet conferences. If you’re an introvert, you’ll know exactly what we mean when we say it’s hard to head back to practice excited and refreshed, when we spend our time at conferences stressed by crowds and struggling to learn - or even ask a question - within a sea of hundreds of other people.
So at IntroVet, we want you to learn in the style that serves you best! Pick an environment that’s comfortable for you. If that means sitting on the couch and piling all your pets on your lap while you watch a webinar, do it! If that means taking a snack and your computer to a park to watch a video course, that sounds amazing! We’re here for it. If you need a getaway, meet us at a conference in San Antonio, and we promise you’ll have plenty of space to stretch out, tons of good food, and an easy space to ask questions without competition or stage fright.
Learn About 'The Why' Behind Our New Name
At IntroVet™, we value...
Vet teams first
We do this work because we know firsthand how difficult it is to stay inspired when we feel chronically overworked, underappreciated, and distressed for all the ones we don't get to save. This is a place to rest with like-minded individuals, to learn and grow, and to gain fresh inspiration to serve the creatures we love most.
In all we do, we allow our personalities to shine through. We are not a faceless corporation. (Have you met Pistol Pete?) We are your coworkers, managers, veterinarians and technicians. We want you to know us, and we want to know you! We love jokes. We like to have fun. And we know life (and learning) is better when it occasionally includes a pun.
Continuing education does you no good if it's not applicable to your everyday work. We strive to provide an experience that is practical, approachable, and focused on the knowledge you're seeking. You can expect thoughtful, mindful, and engaging content at every event and know that every aspect of your experience has been planned with intention.
A Conference Experience Designed with Introverts in Mind
At each weekend veterinary conference, our educators will share diagnostic, treatment, prognostic, and other practical advice in their area of expertise. Selected for their kindness and candor as much as their expertise, engage easily with our speakers through round table discussions, case studies, and Q&A sessions. Join an in-person or online IntroVet™ veterinary CE and find a friendly community that will help you return to practice on Monday, refreshed and ready to tackle even the most complicated problems.

As usual IntroVet™ keeps it real! This training was very helpful to actual cases we all see, not merely conceptual. It is a great way for me to keep up with my CE, as travelling is impractical for me as a sole practioner. And, the content is right on point. Jenni Rizzo for president!!!
Very interesting topics. The presentations was handled great by the speakers. The time spent for the Q&A section was very satisfactory, as this part is unfortunately widely neglected. You can learn a lot through questions! Overall, it was a great set of lectures and definitely worth the time.
The lecturers selected were fantastic. All sessions were beneficial. It helps to be able to listen to lectures again to help pick up on anything I might have missed!
Jenni Rizzo, DVM
Jenni Rizzo is a veterinarian, a wife, a dog-lover, and an introvert (or… an IntroVet™)! As a practitioner, her special interests include emergency medicine and heartworm disease. Outside of private practice, Dr. Rizzo loves creating and advocating for programs that support veterinary teams. Just as veterinarians and technicians give their all to care for animals and their humans, she believes veterinary teams deserve to be equally well cared for.
Dr. Rizzo receives lots of support from her husband, Jared, and Chief Executive Dog, Pistol Pete. Learn more about the whole Leadership Team!Meet the Team
