The British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA) is returning to Scotland for a weekend of CPD, networking and ceilidh dancing at BSAVA Alba 2022 on 16 and 17 September at the Macdonald Inchyra Hotel in Polmont, Falkirk.
Formerly known as BSAVA’s Scottish Congress, delegates will have access to 28 lectures, four practicals and ten hours of CPD with something for everyone to get involved. There’s also the opportunity to meet with leading industry representatives such as IDEXX, Zoetis and Royal Canin as part of the exhibition and find out more about the latest products and services they have to offer.
A packed programme consisting of three lecture streams for vets, vet nurses, and ‘Open to all’ has something for everyone. Session highlights include ‘Echocardiology’ with Kieran Borgeat, ‘Dermatology: What can nurses do?’ with Sue Paterson, and ‘Wildlife Triage’ with Jenna Richardson. The practical sessions are open to all and include sampling techniques, suturing and a ferret clinical exam.
As well as hands-on practicals and lectures, delegates can attend a gala dinner on Friday 16 from 7.30pm, starting with a drinks reception, followed by dinner and entertainment in the evening including a live band and ceilidh dancing!
Angela McLaughlin, Scottish Regional Chair at the BSAVA said: “We are delighted that we are returning to Scotland after three years away as this is a great event that allows vets and nurses the opportunity to improve their skills and knowledge, while visiting an idyllic part of the country!”
