18–20 October 2018 Southern European Veterinary Congress 2018
AVEPA (Spanish Association for Small Animal Veterinarians), in collaboration with the NAVC (North American Veterinary Community), will again host the Southern European Veterinarian Conference - SEVC. The conference will take place in Barcelona, Spain, 9 to 11 November. Since 2007, the SEVC has been building its reputation as a conference whose scientific programme provides an outstanding continuing education opportunity for veterinarians all over the world. Again this year, more than 200 lectures by more than 100 world-wide experts will cover every aspect of companion animal veterinary care from diagnosis to therapy, including specific topics such as anaesthesia, behaviour, dentistry, dermatology, practice management, emergency/critical care, orthopaedics, pain management, Small Animal Medicine and Feline Medicine. The SEVC’s mission is to present the veterinary community with the latest advances in animal care to the veterinary community in a professional, but fun, environment. This year’s social events will include the not-to-be-missed Grand Fiesta. Spanish and English are the SEVC’s official languages and simultaneous translation will be provided at all lectures. At some lectures, simultaneous translation into French, Russian, Portuguese and Polish will also be provided.
16–19 October 2018 Ninth International Conference on Antimicrobial Agents in Veterinary Medicine (AAVM)
This forthcoming conference follows the success of the past eight AAVM held in Helsinki, Ottawa, Orlando, Prague, Tel Aviv, Washington DC, Berlin and Budapest. This conference has emerged as one of the leading meetings in its field, which provides a very intensive program and encourages communication among the attendees.
Infectious diseases are very common in veterinary medicine and antimicrobial agents have a predominant role in veterinary therapeutics both in farm and companion animals. Antimicrobial use is still under the spotlight for the potential of antimicrobial resistance and human health risks. Valid alternatives to these drugs are still not routinely available and the veterinary medicine has to deal with their use and with a more modern and updated approach in the therapy. These aspects and many others, such as, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, PK/PD modelling, antimicrobial resistance, residues, clinical trials, new antimicrobial molecules, etc. will stay in the forefront of the topics of the AAVM programs and will be discussed in depth with the participation of speakers of high repute as well as attendees.Veterinary use of antimicrobials has been increasingly criticized, especially for the potential of resistance transfer from farm animals to humans. Simultaneously, the ever decreasing introduction of new antimicrobial molecules has also limited the number of useful therapeutic agents. Modern approaches for infection reduction in intensive rearing farms are in progress. New ideas of alternatives and "greener" options in the treatment of infectious diseases are under investigation. What the potentials are will also be addressed in the upcoming AAVM meeting.
