BVA president on Brexit opportunities
Brexit offers opportunities for animal health and welfare, as well as threats, said BVA president Gudrun Ravetz at the annual BVA London dinner. It could be an opportunity to tighten up the Pet Travel Scheme and improve the Welfare at Time of Killing Regulations for England, which she stated are "simply not fit for purpose".
Ms Ravetz also stressed the importance of recognising and retaining the vital roles vets play in animal health and welfare, and public health, in order to secure successful outcomes from Brexit. She gave a preview into the new 'I support team vet' campaign, which launches on 8 February and champions the value of vets, nurses and the wider veterinary team.
