Royal Canin sponsored the Association of Veterinary Students (AVS) Congress 2016 at the University of Liverpool.

Royal Canin sponsored a talk and held a giveaway at its stand.

The event took place on 6 and 7 February and Royal Canin’s veterinary scientific support manager Lee Danks presented a talk entitled “Know your nutrition… does diet really make a difference”.

Preferred interests

He said: “It has been brilliant to be involved in such a key event in the vet student calendar. AVS is an opportunity for students to focus on their preferred interests in the world of veterinary science, to network, to enhance practical skills and, of course, have a lot of fun.

“The Royal Canin student ambassadors programme has been running since 2004 and allows us to better support vet students across the UK and Ireland. Charlotte Moss McCrory, our ambassador for the University of Liverpool, has been a key member of the AVS organising committee this year.”

Wide scope

A fourth year student at Liverpool said: “The event provided a great opportunity for an impressive 300 delegates to experience a wide range of brilliant speakers and a diverse set of practicals, including suturing/spay practice, ultrasound scanning and exotics handling.

“Being involved with congress and seeing the benefit to students of having access to organisations such as Royal Canin has made me appreciate my involvement with the ambassador programme even more. It gives a great introduction to being involved with a large company.”

Royal Canin also ran a giveaway competition from their stand at the careers fair, with the winner, Kate Urwin from the University of Nottingham, receiving a year’s supply of pet food.
