This year’s annual CUVZS Garden Party will be held on WEDNESDAY 19th JUNE, 2pm – 4:30pm, at Sidney Sussex College.
As is traditional, there will be ANIMALS – from cuddly bunnies and a skunk to somewhat less cuddly snakes, tortoises and spiders. Come to the only VET GARDEN PARTY in Cambridge! (Non-vets also welcome!)
More details, including ticket information, will be published soon.
On Saturday 23rd February we were joined by the staff and alpacas from Woodbine Farm Alpacas. The day started with a short talk to give us an understanding of what it takes to keep alpacas in the UK. We were then treated to a meeting with the alpacas themselves. Head over to the Photo Gallery to see just how cute they were!
This year’s CUVZS Symposium (In Situ Conservation: At Home and Abroad) brought some of the finest speakers in the veterinary zoological world to Cambridge for a weekend of practicals, debates and talks! This year’s symposium dinner was held at Pembroke college and delivered a fantastic end to Saturday’s events.
Things were very touch and go with a blizzard sweeping across the country and putting many people’s travel plans into jeopardy. Thankfully, we managed to achieve an (almost) full contingent of speakers and the vast majority of our delegates made it down to Cambridge for the weekend.
We on the CUVZS Committee hope you all had a fantastic weekend and hope to see you again in the future. Photos from the weekend can be found over in the Photo Gallery!
One of our scheduled speakers for this term, Dr. David Taylor, sadly passed away recently.
His talk scheduled for the 19th of February is obviously cancelled and we will let you know if we have a replacement speaker.

Birds of Prey Day!
Last Saturday saw falcons, hawks and kestrels come swooping into the vet school! Courtesy of ‘Flight of the Falcon Displays’, our attendees got to try their hand at bird of prey restraint, hooding, crop tubing and beak and talon trimming! A specialist vet was also on hand to discuss veterinary related issues for birds of prey.
Check out the photos over in the Photo Gallery!
The CUVZS Committee would like to welcome everyone back for another year of vet school! We’d also like to extend a special welcome to the freshers joining us for the first time!
Another year… another helping of great CUVZS events! We’ve got some great things planned for you all, including an all new fixture for this term- Rabbit Surgery Day!
We hope you’ll be able to get involved with our lineup of events for Michaelmas 2012!
