Practical workshop for vets on animal welfare : Stara Zagora, Bulgaria 25-26 March 2015


The European Commission's Directorate General for Health and Consumers along with the FVE and the Union of Veterinarians in Bulgaria, as well as Bulgarian Food Safety Agency and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Trakia University are organising the 9th regional workshop on animal welfare for veterinary practitioners.

It will take place on 25-26 March in Stara Zagora, Bulgaria and is targeted at veterinarians from Bulgaria and neighbouring countries.

The aim is to provide veterinarians with a deeper understanding of animal welfare issues. The workshop will focus on the legislation, the critical issues and species-specific assessment schemes. In addition to the theoretical presentations there will be practical sessions on-farm and in a zoo, where participants can put their knowledge into practice.

The registrations will be opened at the beginning of February. Participation is free but registration obligatory. Places are limited and distributed on the basis of registration date.
