We would love to invite you for our next Furry Vets event!
It’s been over 5 years since we last met in Warsaw during Rabbit Medicine and Guinea Pig Medicine Conferences and Workshops in 2017. Back in 2020 we were forced to move online with our II Rabbit Medicine Conference due to COVID-19 pandemics. We wish this time we could gather again during a true small mammal festival.
This time we are extremely honoured and excited that two unique specialists accepted our invitation to lecture for us during the Small Mammal Conference. Straight from Hong Kong a person that needs no presentation – dr Zoltan Szabo DVM, DACZM, DABVP(ECM), DABVP(Avian), GpCert(ExAP), MRCVS known to many of us as @dr.zoltan – one of the most active exotic pet veterinarians in the world, sharing his passion for education and clinical excellence and our first Polish radiology diplomate Ewa Stańczyk DVM, PhD, DECVDI, MRCVS. We are more than happy that they will finally meet in person, as we know that they already collaborate in the field of advanced exotic pet teleradiology.
The conference will take place 25-26 March 2023 in the Airport Hotel in Warsaw.
We also planned (27 March) a post-congress wet lab in small mammal small tissue surgery workshops with Dr Zoltan Szabo and Péter Pazár DVM, an owner of the Exo-Pet Clinic in Budapest.
Feel welcome to join us on Saturday (25 March) night during a cocktail party.
DVM, DACZM, DABVP(ECM), DABVP(Avian), GpCert(ExAP), MRCVS
