BVDSG Events

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The British Veterinary Dermatology Study Group (BVDSG) would like to welcome you to their Autumn Meeting entitled “Cutaneous Oncology”. This meeting will again be a VIRTUAL meeting hosted by ELearning.Vet ( and will take place on Saturday 6th November 2021 as a single day meeting.
The meeting will take on a slightly different format this year, following valuable feedback from our members, and will consist of shorter, bite-sized 20-minute lectures from renowned expert speakers Ana Lara Garcia, Chiara Penzo, Gerry Polton, Benito de la Puerta, Sarah Danson and Audrey Petite.
The programme is fabulous and will cover pathogenesis, principles of therapy, mast cell tumours, lymphoma, melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma and novel diagnostics and therapeutics.
We thank our members and our sponsors for their continued and valued support and do hope that you will all join us once again for a day of world class Dermatology CPD from the comfort and safety of your own home.

On behalf of the BVDSG Committee
Sarah Warren BVetMed MSc (Clin. Onc.) CertVD MRCVS
BVDSG President
