‘Animal Welfare – the Role of the OV’ is the theme of the 2016 Official Veterinarian (OV) Conference set to take place between the 29th and 30th September 2016 at Alexandra House, Swindon. The programme includes lecture streams and round-table discussions on themes relating to both Large Animals and Small Animals, in addition to a series of lectures aimed at Equine Practitioners.
This second OV conference has been organised following extremely positive feedback from delegates attending the inaugural event in October 2015. It is a collaboration between Improve International, which handles OV registration and training in England, Scotland and Wales; 5m Publishing (both companies are part of the Benchmark Holdings Group) and the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA). Their combined objectives are to provide a forum to discuss the latest developments in OV work and to offer an opportunity for OVs to network and share experiences and ideas.
Large Animal topics to be discussed at the event include Bovine TB, Bluetongue and Porcine Epidemic Diarrhoea while Small Animal practitioners will focus on export regulations, certification, the Pet Travel Scheme, together with welfare and exotic disease issues. Equine lectures will include legislation updates and welfare and exotic diseases.
