Surf’s up for CPD from Virbac

Following its successful debut in 2012, a CPD day which uniquely combines a morning’s CPD with a surfing lesson on the UK’s leading surf beach has been announced by Virbac.  It takes place on Friday 26 April.

During the morning’s session, Senior Field Veterinary Advisor Alex Allen BVM&S MRCVS will discuss ‘Current thinking on companion animal vaccines,’ which will include reference to CaniLeish, Virbac’s vaccine for Leishmaniosis.  New for this year, dermatologist Peri Lau-Gillard DrMedVet CertVD DipECVD MRCVS will then talk on ‘Awful Atopics.’

The venue is the Atlantic Hotel, Newquay (close to Fistral Beach), with delegates transported to the nearby Surf School after lunch for their surfing lesson.  A buffet lunch and post-surfing drinks will be provided by Virbac.

Territory manager and organiser Della Tomlinson commented “After last year’s event we have had requests to repeat it from as far afield as London and Edinburgh, and we think that £30 for 3 hours of quality CPD is great value.  As well as the obvious fun element of the surfing, we’re deliberately holding the event on a Friday so vets can take advantage and enjoy a well-earned weekend away at a great location.  Sadly this will have to be at your own expense!”
