    The British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA) and the Wales Veterinary Science Centre (WVSC) have launched Vets Cymru, a two-day event offering both large and small animal ‘CPD by the sea’ for vets and vet nurses.

    The mixed practice event takes place in Aberystwyth on 28th and 29th June and has a ‘Welsh stamp’ across the programme, plus an exhibition of around 25 companies and social calendar which includes a traditional Welsh Twmpath, a dance night on the seafront.

    It features four streams of clinically-led CPD for small and large animal vets and vet nurses. Highlights already confirmed include vet David Church giving a lecture on small animal medicine endocrinology and leading a medical mystery tour, and Sue Paterson lecturing on dermatology for vets and vet nurses. Fyrnwy Equine Group will provide a half day of equine lectures in the large animal stream, Burtons Veterinary Equipment is sponsoring a practical endoscopy event and BVA will lead discussions on antibiotic resistance and medicine control.

    The Chief Veterinary Officer for Wales, Christianne Glossop, will give a welcome address at a drinks reception on the Friday evening.

    BSAVA Welsh regional committee chair Kate O’Sullivan said: “We are delighted to launch this exciting weekend of CPD by the sea, which has a very Welsh stamp on it and is packed full of interesting content and ideas.

    “This two-day CPD event is the first of its kind in Wales and promises to be a great opportunity to meet up with colleagues to enjoy this beautiful town, which has lots of family-friendly activities to keep the kids occupied as well.

    “Our core ethos is to meet the needs of veterinary practitioners and nurses in mixed practice, who often work in relative isolation and travel long distances to boost their training. We felt it was important to give a strong Welsh flavour as part of this innovative new event, and we look forward to saying ‘Croeso I bawb!’ (Welcome to all!).”

    Registration is open and around 100 delegates expected. To find out more information please visit
