Vets scoop additional BEVA awards
Adam Redpath and equine medicine specialist David Rendle. 

Voorjaarsdagen and BEVA Awards mark close relationship between Associations. 

Two equine veterinary surgeons have received top awards in recognition of their contributions to equine veterinary science, health and welfare.

Clinical teaching associate Adam Redpath and equine medicine specialist David Rendle won the reciprocal Voorjaarsdagen BEVA Award and the Sam Hignett Award respectively for their presentations at BEVA Congress 2018.

Marking the close relationship between the two associations, the awards are selected and presented biannually, once at the Voorjaarsdagen Congress and then at BEVA Congress.

Adam won the Voorjaarsdagen Award for his paper ‘Aminoglycoside Antibiotics; still essential in equine practice?’. In receiving this award, he gains free registrations to Voorjaarsdagen Congress 2019 where he will have the opportunity to present his paper again.

David received The Sam Hignett Award for the best clinical research presentation from general equine practice. His paper ‘Efficacy of a novel palatable pergolide paste formulation for the treatment of pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID) in ponies’, wins him free registration to next year’s AAEP Annual Convention. 

Other awards presented at BEVA Congress 2018 include The BEVA Equine Welfare Award, sponsored by Blue Cross, and the BEVA Richard Hartley Clinical Award.

 A selection of X-ray images showing the inner workings of frogs, turtles, snakes and geckos have been shared by veterinary surgeons at ZSL London Zoo.

Taken as part of a routine health check, the images have been shared as part of ‘Vets in Action’ week - a hand’s on role-playing experience for children that explores the life of a zoo vet.

ZSL London Zoo veterinary nurse Heather Mackintosh said: “It’s great to be able to share the work that goes on behind the scenes at the Zoo to keep our residents in tip-top condition – and our visitors are always amazed to find out more about their favourite animals.”

Vets in developing nations given free access to BSAVA’s online library

BSAVA has teamed up with the WSAVA, the WSAVA Foundation and FECAVA to offer vets in developing nations free access to its online library.

The Association’s ‘Foundation Collection’ is comprised of more than 70 hours of articles, lectures and book chapters covering topics such as basic handling skills, working on a budget and emergency triage. Some of the countries set to benefit include Albania, Georgia, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda and Tanzania.

Nicolette Hayward, of BSAVA International Affairs Committee said: “Our mission is to promote excellence in small animal practice through education and science, so we are delighted to work with WSAVA, the WSAVA Foundation and FECAVA to share these high-quality resources to the veterinary profession in low and middle-income countries.”
