Dear friends and colleagues,


Welcome to the fifth issue of EJCAP online, now entering its second year! And a particularly warm welcome to our Russian colleagues who have joined our readership.

This time, our Editorial team has selected a variety of articles, ranging from health care in pet chickens to anaesthesia in reptiles. Surgically-inclined colleagues will enjoy the papers on elbow dysplasia and the safe anaesthesia of cardiac patients, but this issue also features papers on urinary calculi, liver tumours, kidney lesions and a treatment study of auto-immune haemolytic anaemia. As usual, learning is made fun: all articles are enriched with interactive slideshows, self-evaluation tests, printout reference tables and/or videos!

Also in this issue: a Focus on... the Netherlands. In a video interview, Ludo Hellebrekers, President of the Dutch veterinary association, describes how our veterinary colleagues in that country have successfully reduced antibiotic use in animals.

From Zaventem Airport in Brussels (see video below) I wish you an enjoyable read!
