The FECAVA 2016 awards were presented late June at the FECAVA EuroCongress in Vienna.

Patrick Hensel (Tierdermatologie Basel, Switzerland) won the FECAVA award for the best reprint paper published in the European Journal of Companion Animal Practice (EJCAP), as first author of the paper Canine atopic dermatitis: detailed guidelines for diagnosis and allergen identification. The paper originally appeared in BMC Veterinary Research.

Danièlle Gunn-Moore (Edinburgh University, UK) won the FECAVA award for best commissioned article published in the EJCAP, for her paper: Increased vocalisation in elderly cats.

The awards were presented to the respective FECAVA Directors, Käthi Brunner (Switzerland) and Krista Arnold (UK), by FECAVA president Jerzy Gawor and EJCAP Editor Karin de Lange.
