Cornish Veterinary Association’s CPD day draws in delegates

More than 100 vets and VNs enjoyed a day of learning across four streams when the Cornish Veterinary Association (CVA) ran its CPD day.

Four streams – two companion animal, one equine and one farm animal – and an exhibition with 18 companies were organized for the day, held at the Fal building at Truro and Penwith College.

Orthopedics, hypertension, cardiology and behavior were among the lectures aimed at companion animal GPs.


A smaller number of equine and farm delegates meant an intimate format of lectures could be staged, and John Remnant, professor in farm animal health and production at the University of Nottingham, returned to the county he grew up in to deliver a session on measuring and monitoring dairy herd fertility.

The CVA’s annual meeting was held during lunch, with RVN Renay Rickard elected president.

Members of the association will soon decide where money raised in the past 12 months will go, with Vetlife and charities in Ukraine to be the beneficiaries.
