WESTVET 
Tuesday, May 14, 2019
The Western Meeting of Poultry Clinicians and Pathologists (WestVet) is entering its 30th year in 2019.  The success of the previous meetings allows us to predict an equally successful and informative WestVet on Tuesday May 14, 2019.

WestVet was established 30 years ago (as of 2019) as a platform for case reports and burning questions, a format that proved to be successful and popular.  British Columbia is home to a vibrant poultry industry and a highly regarded AAVLD accredited provincial diagnostics laboratory.  The density of the poultry industry in BC offers a great opportunity for veterinarians and poultry experts to visit poultry operations and businesses, including feed manufacturers and hatcheries.  For these reasons, Abbotsford has been an excellent location for this event. In recent years, attendance at WestVet has been expanded to include other poultry scientists, including nutritionists, engineers, and geneticists, who focus on disease prevention strategies.

Please find below your registration information as well as a call for case reports for WestVet.  This will be held at the Quality Hotel and Conference Center at 36035 North Parallel Road in Abbotsford, BC.  The registration fee for WestVet has been waived for 2019 due to our sponsors.  A working lunch is sponsored for meeting participants.  We trust you will continue to support WestVet this May. The agenda for WestVet will follow the format of previous years and will begin with case reports.  Our ever-popular, informal “Burning Question Period” will follow, with interesting and  controversial topics for an in-depth discussion. We would ask that you please register as soon as possible as spaces will fill up quickly.  The registration deadline is April 30, 2019.  Please also see the Call for Presentations (Case Reports) tab on the left.
