This week’s talk is being given by Livia Benato, who is coming to talk to us about some interesting small mammal case studies, hopefully looking at a range of small furry species.

Livia is a European Recognised Specialist in Small Mammal Medicine. She completed a residency at Edinburgh Vet School in rabbit and exotic animal medicine, worked for a year as Veterinary Officer for Chester Zoo and as a Univeristy Clinician at Glasgow Vet School. She now works as a small mammal and exotics Veterinary Associate at CityVets in Exeter.
This should be a really interesting, clinically relevant talk, so come along to LT2 at 6:30pm (6:15 for cake!). It’s free for members/£1 for non-members.

In this week’s talk Sergio Silvetti will be coming to talk to us about avian cases that you might see in practice. Sergio is a first opinion exotics vet from Manor Vets, and is currently working towards his CertAVP in Zoological Medicine. He’s going to go though a range of intercative cases, from avian orthopaedic conditions to a case of tracheal resection and anastamosis in an Amazon parrot.

This should be a great chance to work through some clinical cases, and get a feel for what exotics practice can be like.
