Virbac have announced a CPD surfing day in April 2013

Virbac are continuing on from their success last year and holding another CPD surfing day this year.  The day, which uniquely combines a morning’s CPD with a surfing lesson on the UK's leading surf beach in Newquay will take place on Friday April 26. 

During the morning’s session, Senior Field Veterinary Advisor Alex Allen BVM&S MRCVS will discuss ‘Current thinking on companion animal vaccines,’ which will include reference to CaniLeish, Virbac’s vaccine for Leishmaniosis.  New for this year, dermatologist Peri Lau-Gillard DrMedVet CertVD DipECVD MRCVS will then talk on ‘Awful Atopics.’

The venue is the Atlantic Hotel, Newquay (close to Fistral Beach), with delegates transported to the nearby Surf School after lunch for their surfing lesson.  A buffet lunch and post-surfing drinks will be provided by Virbac. 

Territory manager and organiser Della Tomlinson said: 'After last year’s event we have had requests to repeat it from as far afield as London and Edinburgh, and we think that £30 for 3 hours of quality CPD is great value.  As well as the obvious fun element of the surfing, we’re deliberately holding the event on a Friday so vets can take advantage and enjoy a well-earned weekend away at a great location.  Sadly this will have to be at your own expense!'

Thomas Rees, MA VetMB MRCVS, went to the CPD day in Newquay last year and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience; 'a fantastic, fun day of CPD in glorious sunshine, even though last year's event was held in March!'

So in the words of the Beach Boys...Everybody's gone surfin', surfin' Newquay...
