vtx was founded in 2019 to deliver an alternative CPD experience to the veterinary profession. The veterinary team consists of Scott Kilpatrick (Internal Medicine Specialist), Liz Bode (Cardiology Specialist) and Andy Bell (Registered Veterinary Nurse).
The Veterinary Thought Exchange is like no other veterinary continuing education platform. It is by far the most unique, and dare I say, the most helpful resource for veterinary professionals. There is not only a wealth of knowledge within the courses and webinars offered, but the podcasts are refreshing and delightful to listen to. And, as if that was not enough, with a membership you have real-time access to specialists for those more challenging cases. But perhaps, my favorite part of all, is the uplifting and positive atmosphere that the team provides through VTX, through both their membership and courses, but also through their social media platform. This is a group of vets who are truly helping vets, and I am so thankful for them!
Kelly Gehlhaus (Veterinary Surgeon)
I can’t recommend VTX enough! As a vet, their CPD courses have been an invaluable resource in my everyday practice. The journal clubs they offer are fantastic – even if I haven’t read the papers, I can still attend and listen to insightful discussions that enhance my knowledge. The live clinical rounds in imaging and cytology have been a game-changer, providing real-life case scenarios that I can immediately apply in my practice. VTX’s dedication to providing useful and practical CPD has truly elevated my skills and confidence as a vet. Thank you, VTX, for your outstanding support and commitment to our professional growth
Emma Holt (Veterinary Surgeon)
VTX courses are perfectly tailored to the general practioner. Each course takes a systematic deep dive into the topic, providing up to date evidence based information on how to deal with commonly encountered conditions. Each VTX course I have completed has given me a much deeper understanding of the topic and has absolutely helped me to improve the treatments that I deliver to my patients.
Magda Upton (Veterinary Surgeon)
VTX is really unique because it covers all the bases you could want in veterinary CPD. If you want something super clinically advanced, they have that. If you prefer something with a more fundamental approach, they have that too. If you are looking for something non-clinical, or just a really fun podcast, VTX has it all. It is well rounded, current, accessible and fun. 10/10 from me 😊
Ashley Wemple (RVN, BS, Cert VNECC)
VTX has been a stable part of my CPD diet for several years now and will continue to be so for many years to come. The content provided by VTX is OUTSTANDING! Relevant, up to date, easy to follow. The VTX team are super helpful and always happy to answer queries.
Annual Membership is so worthwhile – for a monthly payment, you have access to all the pre-recorded webinars in the library as well as your choice of a full course each year of your membership!
I highly recommend VTX as a CPD provider.

Veterinary professionals work hard and look after others, to do that sustainably we need to look after ourselves. Finding a balance of work and life is crucial. But so is maximising wellbeing at work. The vision that vtx has in combining high quality CPD and creating a community of like minded colleagues is a really refreshing approach to the demands of veterinary life.
Rosie Allister (Veterinary Surgeon)
I have known Scott for some years through referring cases and have always found him extremely knowledgeable, helpful and approachable. So it is exciting to see this expertise shared through vtx. The platform is easy to navigate and different from others I have used with the addition of interactive discussion forums and specialist advice services which I think will make it easier to fulfill reflective CPD requirements in line with the new guidelines.
