Autumn Meeting 2020

Dear Friends and Colleagues

The British Veterinary Dermatology Study Group (BVDSG) would like to welcome you to their Autumn Meeting entitled “Head to Tail – Dermatology meets Dentistry, Ophthalmology, Neurology and Internal Medicine”. This meeting will be a VIRTUAL meeting hosted by ELearning Vet ( and will take place over the weekend of 12th and 13th September 2020.

Following the overwhelmingly positive feedback regarding our decision back in March to host a virtual meeting, and the continued uncertainty about individuals’ ability or desire to travel and attend the traditional event in Stansted this Autumn, we made the decision to hold another virtual event.

We do hope that you will support our meeting as you always do and enjoy some world class Dermatology CPD from the comfort and safety of your own home!

We have a fabulous two-day speaker line-up this year covering a variety of different elements of the important cross-overs that we commonly see with skin disease, including perioral dermatoses, nasal planum dermatoses, periocular dermatoses, ocular disease of dermatological interest, internal diseases leading to skin disease, neurological aspects of ear and skin disease, including Chiari Malformation-Syringohydromyelia and PSOM, as well as food allergy and the microbiome.
We welcome expert speakers Hilary Jackson, Susan Thorne, Marge Chandler, Heidi Featherstone, Ian Ramsey and Alberta de Stefani-Llabres to a fascinating weekend of lectures.
We would like to thank our Sponsors for their continued and valued support, and our members for their regular attendance, both of which make it possible for us to hold these supremely high quality educational events.

We thank you for your support and hope that you enjoy the meeting!

On behalf of the BVDSG Committee
