In the first weekend of December, 2-3 December 2023, we organized the 31st Annual Conference for the Czech Association of Small Animal Veterinarians, in Prague’s O2 Universum.

The educational program of this year’s conference was very rich and presented both elements of the latest knowledge and basic schemes in the diagnostic and therapeutic approach in the spirit of the project “Back to the basics” with the aim not to neglect the level of basic veterinary knowledge and skills.

In total, around 450 people and 33 exhibitors visited the conference, and we are happy to return to live pre-Covid events, which is confirmed by the program for 2024.
