2017 EVENTS

AUGUST 2017

24 August  VDX are delighted to announce that on the evening of Thursday, 24th August 2017 our very own Dr. Maryke Henton will be presenting her much-anticipated talk on “Antibiotic resistance in South Africa and prevention strategies”, at the Westville Veterinary Hospital Complex. The veterinary profession has become the cornerstone of antibiotic stewardship due to our experience and expertise in the fields of both animal health and public health. This stewardship applies to veterinarians across the board from companion animal practice, large animal practice (livestock, equine) and wildlife. It is our duty as veterinarians to ensure that we are well schooled in the art of antibiotic resistance and the management thereof, to safeguard these products for future generations, and this forms an integral part of the global one health initiative.  Free CPD points, courtesy of VDX, are available for your attendance, so if you snooze you lose.   Where:   Westville Veterinary Hospital 31 Jan Hofmeyer Rd.Westville  When:   Thursday 24th August  Time   7 for 7.30 PM   RSVP to vetdiagnostix@futurenet.co.za providing the following information so that we can capture the necessary information to register your CPD points.
