SVA Joint Pocket Pet and Exotic Conference 2013
Singapore Veterinary Association will be jointly organising a conference in 2013 focusing on the medicine and surgery of pocket pets, exotics and wildlife. We are excited to host this together with the Unusual and Exotic Pets (UEP) branch of the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) and the Asian Society of Zoo and Wildlife Medicine (ASZWM). Stay tuned for more details.
Singapore Veterinary Association has been asked to host the 2014 Federation of Asian Veterinary Associations (FAVA) conference. This event will be held in conjunction with the SVA annual conference, and although dates are not yet set, is likely to be held in November 2014.
A new special interest group under the umbrella of the SVA will be formed this year. The Feline Practitioners of Singapore will be looking for members with an interest in all things feline. We will be looking to become national partners of the ISFM (International Society of Feline Medicine). Please contact Dr. Cathy Chan for more details. Our first continuing education opportunity is scheduled for February 2013. Keep an eye out for more information.
SVA has been working closely with various stakeholders and AVA as part of the working committee reviewing animal welfare legislation in Singapore. We encourage all SVA members to submit feedback to us on all aspects of animal welfare in Singapore. The group aims to present our recommendations before the end of the year 2012.
