Vetstart at BSAVA 2012
The congress saw a number of announcements including the news that Mark Johnston is to be the next BSAVA president.
One Health was an issue of particular importance. We attended the press conference chaired by Michael J Day (One Health chairman) with input from SAVSNET (Small Animal Veterinary Surveillance Network) head Alan Radford.
Vets need to make the first move to engage the human medical community, and human doctors need to be aware of the importance pets have on their patients. Antibiotic overuse, rabies in deprived countries and obesity still play a major part in both human and animal health. More details will follow on One Health which will hopefully get more attention throughout the year.
Amongst other things, we saw Hills staff on segways, mini golf at Petplan and people dressed in full orange suits for the Vet Charity Challenge.
