Dear Colleague,

We all know it: pets are good for us! They lower the heart rate, relieve depression, decrease hypertension and the risk of obesity and allergies. Together with Animal Health Europe and the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe, FECAVA produced an infographic to raise awareness about the benefits and responsibilities of pet ownership.
Furthermore, this year's BSAVA congress was the occasion for FECAVA to raise awareness about healthy breeding, with an airflow-reduction mask to simulate brachy breathing.
Read about this and more - and check out our selection of free webinars and open access papers as well as our monthly book review. Enjoy!

Dear Colleague,

Healthy breeding is an issue that's here to stay, and many of our member associations are being very active on this front. To help other associations in raising awareness FECAVA decided to produce a centralised toolbox of resources.
If your association is not listed and should be, please let us know!
This spring newsletter has its usual crop of news, but don't forget to check out the selection of free webinars and open access papers and this month's book review. Enjoy!

Dear colleague,

Have you booked your flight and accommodation for the EuroCongress in Tallinn yet? It's only three months away! To give an impression of Estonia, a past president shares his memories - share yours on Facebook!
The healthy breeding issue is taking off (did you get your T-shirt yet?): Many of our member associations are being very active on this front, as you can see below. FECAVA is currently working on the final draft of a European healthy breeding position paper, with input from experts and other European veterinary organisations. Keep watching this space!
