The veterinary industry’s only annual veterinary webinar congress held last month has broken all records for live veterinary CPD, says the organiser, Liverpool based Webinar Vet.

With 30 hours of CPD streamed live to delegates from 39 countries, the annual congress gives access to a wide range of topics and the latest thinking in veterinary medicine and management, according to Webinar Vet founder Anthony Chadwick.
Presenters included David Williams (associate lecturer at the Queen’s Veterinary School Hospital) discussing common ophthalmic problems in exotics, and Jane Armstrong (professor of internal medicine and clinical nutrition at the University of Minnesota’s College of Veterinary Medicine) discussing Aetiopathogenesis and diagnosis of feline liver disease.
Mr Chadwick said: “Our top delegate recorded 13 hours of CPD over the weekend. Other delegates and attendees at the virtual exhibition, which runs alongside the congress, won a range of prizes including Kindle Fires, coffee machines from CEVA, spa vouchers from Elanco, an online CPD course from the RVC – as well as free tickets to next year’s annual Webinar Vet Virtual Congress.”
Many veterinary professionals are juggling busy family lives with their work responsibilities
, and webinar CPD enables them to keep up to date in their own home or office, explained Mr Chadwick.
“For some vets a one day seminar can mean up to two days away from the practice, once travel has been taken into account. The convenience of webinar CPD is invaluable for many.”
