Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

On 14–17 November, 2016, the 29th Conference of the Caribbean Veterinary Medical Association was held in Georgetown, Guyana. During this meeting, veterinary researchers presented and discussed the newest findings in veterinary sciences in the region, covering subject areas ranging from clinical medicine and surgery to infectious diseases. A specific focus of this conference was “One Health in the Caribbean and the wider world’ and its implementation in the region will be highlighted along with research findings in different fields within the Caribbean. Presenters and attendees of this conference, as well as other researchers in the region, are offered the opportunity to publish their most recent research findings in the field of Veterinary Research, along with reviews and case reports. Authors are cordially invited to submit papers to the upcoming Special Issue edition of Veterinary Sciences (ISSN 2306-7381). The manuscript/paper can be submitted via email to the Guest Editors.
