Register for British Equine Veterinary Association Congress

The ticket office is now open for British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) Congress 2012 and early birds can take advantage of some excellent discounts if they book before the end of July. The event will be held September 12-15 at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham, England.

The scientific program is spread over three days, with five in-depth programs running concurrently in five separate lecture halls, catering for veterinarians and veterinary nurses at every level. This year it has been drawn up with the busy general practitioner in mind. It covers a broad range of predominantly day-to-day equine medicine and surgery, through traditional lectures, panel discussions, interactive forums, and 'how to' sessions.

Program highlights for 2012 include an ophthalmology panel with Dennis Brooks, DVM, PhD, Dipl. ACVO; Sue Dyson, MA, VetMB, PhD, DEO, FRCVS, on what's new in the assessment of proximal metacarpal region (forelimb) pain in sport horses; Danny Scott, DVM, Dipl. ACVD, ACVP (Hon), on dermatology; a practical careers session for new graduates; and an afternoon on aspects of practice management. A new introduction for this year is a daily current affairs slot, which includes the News Hour Congress Quiz with Ben Mayes, MA Vet MB MRCVS, on the final day. John Walmsey, MA, Vet MB, Cert EO, Dipl.ECVS, Hon. FRCVS (RCVS specialist in equine surgery) will be giving the plenary lecture on forty years of technological advances in equine practice.

To help the time-pressed manage their lecture attendance more effectively BEVA Congress's Encore Room, sponsored by Pfizer Animal Health, gives delegates the chance to play back missed lectures at their convenience.
