A line-up of 28 speakers delivered 40 hours of veterinary CPD over the two days of congress, organised by The Webinar Vet.

The event started with a pre-congress day sponsored by the BVA, RCVS and Agria Pet Insurance, which Webinar Vet members could attend for free.

‘Touched a nerve’

Founder Anthony Chadwick said: “Pre-congress included a small animal vaccination symposium with John Helps, Michael Day, Peter Scott and Paula Boyden from the Dogs Trust, sponsored by the BVA.

“The mindfulness and well-being webinar touched a real nerve for many delegates. Indeed, some responded with the suggestion this stream be made compulsory viewing for employers.

“Agria also sponsored a pre-congress nursing stream with three brilliant hours of free CPD for nurses presented by Martha Cannon and Louise O’Dwyer covered anaesthesia and geriatrics.”

Charity fund-raising

The congress also raised £3,832 for Dogs Trust, The Webinar Vet’s nominated charity, by donating 10% of ticket sales.
