Joint Animal Welfare Meeting at the 3rd China Veterinary Conference
The Jeanne Marchig International Centre for Animal Welfare Education is proud to partner with the Chinese Veterinary Medical Association to deliver a world-class programme on Animal Welfare at the 3rd China Veterinary Conference in Suzhou in October.
With generous funding from the Animals Asia Foundation and WSPA, the conference will bring together Chinese and Western veterinarians and welfare scientists in a 3 day programme covering a range of topics from humane slaughter to responsible dog breeding and the role of the veterinary nurse in promoting animal welfare. The diversity of the material covered will inform and empower veterinarians working in all fields including laboratory animal science, livestock and companion animals, and will promote the role of the veterinarian as a champion of animal welfare in a country where animal protection legislation does not yet exist.
The conference is an excellent example of the desire for international collaboration, training and development of the veterinary profession in China, and an opportunity to engage both practising veterinarians and veterinary students in relevant animal welfare issues
