Get involved in a healthy discussion about dogs
Book now for 2008 breeders’ symposia

Dog experts, breeders and lovers are invited to come together at two Kennel Club events to discuss how advances in science are transforming the future of dog health.

The Breeders’ Symposia, on 16th November at Glasgow University and 30th November at the Royal Veterinary College, Hertfordshire, are the ninth and tenth of their kind to be held by the Kennel Club - in conjunction with the British Small Animal Veterinary Association (Petsavers) and the Pet Food Manufacturers’ Association - and mark its continued efforts to improve and openly discuss the issue of breed health.

Anybody who has an interest in dogs is invited to attend the discussions which will focus on topics such as hip and elbow dysplasia; canine anaesthesia; eye disease and how the results of the Kennel Club’s Purebred Dog Health Survey, the largest of its kind in the world, can be used to move breed health even further forward.

The discussions will be hosted by experts in their field, including veterinary surgeons; Dr Jeff Sampson, the Kennel Club’s Genetics Consultant and Vicki Adams, Head of Small Animal Epidemiology at the Animal Health Trust. Each presentation will be followed by an open Question and Answer session.

This is a great opportunity for dog breeders and owners to discuss the current state of dog health and to find out what developments we can expect to look forward to.

The Breeders’ Symposia costs £32.50 per person which includes morning refreshments, a buffet lunch and a certificate of attendance.
