Volume 25(1), Spring 2015
This time in EJCAP Online:
FECAVA is going through turbulent times. We mourn the recent passing of three of its founding fathers, Didier Noël Carlotti (France), Jan Gajentaan (Netherlands) and Heinz Heinimann (Switzerland), as well as that of our much-loved past-president and Blue Dog activist Ray Butcher (UK). Their legacy to FECAVA is immense, and has helped turning it into a thriving, active 39-country strong federation spanning Europe from Dublin to Tiblisi and from Lisbon to Moscow.
The Federation, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this spring, connects fellow companion animal veterinarians throughout Europe with the same aim: improving and updating their professional knowledge.
This is done through CPD events such as our annual congress, of which the recent Euro Congress in Munich was an excellent example. And for those who could not attend, you will find the full proceedings in this issue, as well as an interactive paper from the FECAVA lecture and interviews with some of the FECAVA Symposium speakers in Munich, including Thomas Vahlenkamp and Mike Lappin.
Also in this issue: the first “How to…” papers and sound recordings from recent congress presentations – this time from the 2014 BSAVA congress, and the first veterinary app reviews.
