Equine specialists will travel from Ireland, the UK and Australia to speak at VetCon’s first equine stream on Friday 29th May. The lecture programme has been designed with the needs of vets working in mixed practice, equine practice, racecourses and equine hospitals in mind.
Two days of veterinary nursing can be attended at VetCon 2020. Nursing lectures on Thursday will include small animal as well as farm animal content to cater for nurses working in mixed and large animal practice. Louise Northway (@louthevetnurse) will speak in the nursing stream as well as host a special nursing VetCon Focus Session.
Equine nurses will be delighted to see the programme in store for Friday 29th May. Advanced nursing lectures in the nursing stream will include equine content. Additionally Kate Savage, equine medicine specialist and past president of WEVA will host an equine nursing focus session.
VetCon Focus Session tickets can be purchased when you register for the main conference. These exclusive, small group sessions have limited places available and are sure to sell out fast. Don’t delay in securing your seat with the experts.
