BVDSG Events

Dear Friends and colleagues
The British Veterinary Dermatology Study Group (BVDSG) would like to welcome you to their Spring Meeting entitled “Bacterial skin disease”. This meeting will again be a VIRTUAL meeting hosted by ELearning.Vet ( and will take place on Wednesday 24th March 2021.
Following such positive feedback and support after our last two virtual meetings, and the decision by the BSAVA to hold their Annual Congress virtually, and the continuing uncertainty amidst the global Covid-19 pandemic, it felt wholly appropriate to continue in the same vein.
We thank our members for their unswerving support and we do hope that you will support our meeting and enjoy a day of world class Dermatology CPD from the comfort and safety of your own home once again.
We have a fabulous line up covering the skin microbiome, primary factors influencing pyoderma, new therapies, antibiotic stewardship, bacterial resistance and zoonoses, multi-resistance, and hygiene strategies.
We welcome world renowned expert speakers Tim Nuttall, Anette Loeffler and Finola Leonard who will give us valuable insights into this ever-emerging and challenging area of dermatology.
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 educations events.
We hope you enjoy the meeting!

On behalf of the BVDSG Committee
