In favor of increase in CE hours

I think those of us that are committed professionals acquire 8 hours of CE without even thinking about it, however, there are some in our professions that unless held accountable will not follow through, thus making minimum standards necessary. 8 hours is a day.  A day of training is not too much to ask of anyone as a basic, baseline standard.  Things change very rapidly in veterinary medicine and annual CE is crucial to maintaining knowledge levels and expertise in order to deliver quality care to our patients and their owners.
