A bovine papillomavirus type 1 and 2 PCR test is now available at LABOKLIN. It is widely accepted that both viruses are associated with the pathogenesis of equine sarcoids.
Sample material: scurf, hairs (hair roots!), tissue (tumor).
Did you ever wonder how canine leishmaniasis is treated in Istanbul, what racing injuries are common in huskies in Norway, how feline vaccination protocols look like in Malaga or what referral services for companion animals are available in Estonia? Well, now you and a group of your local colleagues can find out first hand, have your expenses paid and you might even make some new friends while doing it.
In order to improve the understanding of companion animal veterinarians in Europe at “grass root” level, the FECAVA, the Federation of European Companion Animal Veterinary Associations, has launched the FECAVA LABOKLIN Travel Bursary together with Laboklin at their latest meeting in Helsinki. The Bursary which is granted once a year will enable two groups of small animal practitioners from two different parts of Europe to visit each other, to observe each other’s daily work, to enjoy their local culture and to learn from another.
Exact details about the bursary and how to apply can be found in the spring edition of EJCAP Online which can be found by visiting the FECAVA website at www.fecava.org.
