The BVA has joined with BEVA to host an equine programme at this year’s London Vet Show.
It is the first time BEVA has been involved in the show, which takes place at the Olympia Grand on Thursday November 19 and Friday November 20.
Both BVA and BEVA were integral in selecting topics and speakers for the lecture stream, which will sit alongside the RVC’s extensive equine programme, developed by Josh Slater at the RVC, which is now in its second year.
The two lecture streams will enable the mixed practitioner to learn new equine skills and knowledge to take back to their practice.
Subjects will include:
- Wound management in the field – Patrick Pollock (University of Glasgow)
- Vaccinations – myths explained – Josh Slater (Royal Veterinary College)
- The difficult laminitis case – Andy Fiske Jackson (Royal Veterinary College)
- The itchy horse – Sue Paterson (Rutland House Referral Hospital)
BVA president John Blackwell said: “BVA is delighted to be partnering with our colleagues at BEVA to bring such an innovative and engaging equine programme to the London Vet Show. It has been a pleasure to work with BEVA in selecting the topics and speakers for this programme and both organisations hope that equine and mixed practice vets will take away new skills and knowledge that will help them deliver improved care back in their practices.”
Andrew Harrison, BEVA president, added: “This is a great opportunity for vets from mixed practice to catch up on some high-quality equine CPD. The lecturers are both experts in their fields and engaging speakers and the joint stream will add an exciting new facet to BEVA’s extensive CPD offering.”
