BVA Congress 2009 logoOnline registration for the British Veterinary Association (BVA) Congress 2009 is now available. Congress 2009 takes place in Cardiff on 24-26 September under the theme Together Forever? asking what devolution in Britain means for animal health and welfare and its impact on the veterinary profession. Professor Sandy Trees, incoming President of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), will deliver the Wooldridge Memorial Lecture asking ‘What, exactly, is a vet?’ and tackling the issues that separate and bind together vets from different areas of the profession. In addition, the programme features a series of contentious issue debates, including: BVA Congress also provides a wide range of CPD opportunities from the British Cattle Veterinary Association, the British Equine Veterinary Association, BVA Overseas Group, Sheep Veterinary Society, Society of Practising Veterinary Surgeons, the Veterinary Benevolent Fund and the Veterinary Defence Society. Topics to be considered in the CPD programme include bovine TB and bluetongue, responsible use of anthelmintics in sheep and the lessons learned from the outbreak of equine influenza in Australia in 2007, as well as sessions on canine and equine ophthalmology and helping practices to beat the recession. A programme from the BVA’s Overseas Group will look at how organisations delivering animal health services overseas might work together more effectively. The Veterinary Benevolent Fund will address the worrying issue of the high suicide rates among vets through three research projects.
