Unusual Pet and Avian Veterinarians Conference 2019 22 CPD Points


The Unusual Pet and Avian Veterinarians Conference (UPAV) is held every year. This provides three days of high-quality education for veterinarians and vet nurses interested in birds, small mammals and reptiles. Attendees include recent graduates to experienced veterinarians. The conference has always been a great opportunity for networking as well as providing current information of diagnostics, therapeutics, surgery and medicine of this group of diverse pets. In 2019, a veterinary nurse stream will be held on Saturday 30 November. A weekend date was chosen to cater to the needs of nurses who care for unusual and avian pets and allow them to attend without losing time at work.
