KESCAVA with the support of the World Equine Veterinary Association (WEVA), will be organizing a CPD event on the 22nd - 24th of February 2019.

This will be an opportunity to listen to, and learn from; world renowned professors / lecturers / authors of equine practice.
The CPD activity will have topics in equine practice, but, aimed at the veterinarian with LESS experience in dealing with equines. The topics will cover problems seen in leisure, competition, working equids and of course donkeys.  There will be a wide variety of interesting subjects which will cover aspects of general veterinary medicine; welfare as well as more specific equine problems.
As our country’s economy and people’s aspirations improve, it is more than possible that equines will be playing a larger role in general practices. It will therefore be useful / essential for veterinarians to have a better understanding of matters equine.
There will hopefully be at least four eminent veterinarians from different parts of the globe coming to share their knowledge. They include:

1.       Professor Emeritus Derek C Knottenbelt OBE, BVM&S, DVM&S, DipECEIM, DACVIM,  MRCVS

        Recognised RCVS and European Specialist in Equine Internal Medicine
