The talk this week will be given by Iain Cope and will be entitled “Top ten commonest things seen in exotics practice” and will also include some of the more unusual cases he has seen. This will be an extremely useful talk for anyone planning on going into practice (exotics or not) – these are the commonest things seen so even normal general practices are likely to have these cases coming in.

As well as cats, dogs, rabbits and farm species, Iain’s work has included alpacas, lamas, chickens, children’s petting zoos and larger species in zoological collections. He then joined an exotics practice in London where he obtained his Certificate in Zoological Medicine. He then spent a year providing an exotics referral service for a large referral hospital, before joining Cambridge Veterinary Group in October 2013. Iain is passionate about conservation and education and has worked closely with wildlife and rehabilitation centres. He has also worked with injured marine mammals as an active Marine Mammal Medic.

As Usual, the talk will be at 6:30, with cake and drinks at 6:15.

Talks are free for members and £1 for non-members.
