AOVET Pre-Congress Programs

September 22 -24, 2018
June 25 is the last day to take advantages of discounts of up to 15 percent on registration fees for four unique AOVET educational programs taking place just prior to the World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) Congress 2018, September 25–28, 2018, in Singapore. 

The AOVET programs take place September 22–24, 2018.
Participants registering by June 25 get a five percent early-bird registration discount and AOVET paying members and/or WSAVA delegates benefit from an additional 10 percent discount, making AOVET’s pre-congress events especially high-value learning opportunities.
From the course on tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) and workshops on practical approaches to fracture management with bone plates and external fixation to the seminar on diagnoses and treatment of lameness in dogs, these four AOVET educational programs are distinguished by their world-leading faculty, including renowned veterinary orthopedic surgeons Mark Glyde (Australia) and Alessandro Piras (Italy). Mark and Alessandro are internationally recognized experts in small animal orthopedics, outstanding educators, and popular AOVET faculty members.
The four Singapore programs - all offering an early-bird discount on their registration fees - are:

AOVET Course - Management of Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO), September 22-23: The course covers the clinical, radiographic and surgical examination of cruciate disease, evidence base for cruciate surgery, rationale and planning for TPLO, the surgical technique and application of locking TPLO, diagnosing and treating meniscal injury, TPLO outcomes and avoiding and managing complications of TPLO. To register, click here.
