The British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA) and the Wales Veterinary Science Centre (WVSC) are eagerly anticipating the opening of the third ‘Vets Cymru’ event on 17 and 18 June at the University of Aberystwyth.
The event combines academic and educational lectures with practical sessions. Each is targeted at either small animal practitioners, farm animal practitioners, equine practitioners or veterinary nurses working in Wales and the border areas. Subject matter covers a range of disciplines and topics – from holistic rabbit anesthesia to oxygen uptake in race horses; from prescribing to endoscopy; from wound management protocols to the role of veterinary professionals in sustainability, and much more besides.
Delegates can amass up to 16 hours of world-class CPD over the two days.
The BSAVA and the WVSC run the event in partnership with support from the University of Aberystwyth and its veterinary students, as well as other sponsors.
“Vets Cymru is a wonderful event which brings together vets, nurses and students – many of whom work in rural mixed practices dotted across Wales – with academics, industry colleagues and suppliers,” says Alison Speakman, Vice President of the BSAVA.
“We ran our first event in 2019 prior to the pandemic, but had to cancel in 2020. Last year’s online lecture series was fantastic but we can’t wait to get back together in person – bringing this wonderful community together for 48 hours for some CPD by the sea! We’re so grateful to all our sponsors for their support in making Vets Cymru happen.”
