Police horses attend Liverpool graduation
“Staff at from our Equine Practice and their final year student groups at Leahurst have been working with these beautiful horses every week for the past year."
Merseyside Mounted Police stand guard at celebrations 

Veterinary students, parents and staff at the University of Liverpool say they were delighted to welcome two police horses to their graduation celebrations last week.

Horses Major and Silver from the Merseyside Mounted Police section stood guard at the graduation in Leahurst on 16 July.

Professor Cathy McGowan, head of the department of equine clinical science, said: “Staff at from our Equine Practice and their final year student groups at Leahurst have been working with these beautiful horses every week for the past year and were delighted that the horses could come to their special day.”

The university provides in-kind veterinary care and support to the Merseyside Mounted Police, as part of its ‘Stand Tall’ campaign.

Cats Protection launches Christmas animation

News Story 1
 Leading feline charity Cats Protection has launched a heartwarming Christmas animation to raise awareness of the important work it does. The animation is based on a true story of a kitten that went missing earlier this year. Freezing cold and hungry, the kitten was dumped in a box on a roadside and somehow became separated from her brother and sisters.


Thankfully there is a happy end to this tail, and Libby - now named Misty - was eventually reunited with her littermates. Misty’s owner, Amy Smith, said: “Misty has settled amazingly well into our home, she has found a best friend in my daughter Lily and likes to follow her around the house. She also loves to chase bugs in the garden. We feel very lucky to have her.”

WSAVA launches certificate programme focusing on companion animals in One Health

The first certificate programme focusing specifically on the role of companion animals in One Health has been launched by the One Health Committee (OHC) of the World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA).

The online programme, which is free of charge for WSAVA members, has been developed in recognition of the growing impact of companion animals in human society. Pet ownership is becoming more popular globally, and this has increased the implications for One Health, regarding the human-companion animal bond. The WSAVA OHC hopes that this course will bridge the knowledge gap between veterinary surgeons and human physicians. New modules are being added weekly, with a total of 20 modules expected to be available by early 2020.
