Reminders:

Veterinarian, Dr. Tomas Guerrero, Professor of Small Animal Surgery at SGUSVM who has been a member of the AOVET Foundation for the past sixteen years, will be attending the World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) Congress later this month. In 2015, Dr. Guerrero received the honor of being elected as a member of the Board of the AOVET Latin American Chapter which encompasses the Caribbean region, and was also selected as Chair of the Education Committee for that Chapter. This was not only an honor for Dr. Guerrero but also for the SGUSVM.

The WSAVA World Congress is a veterinary congress, which is held annually with a scientific program that is produced in alternating regions that are reflective of the local culture and veterinary diversity. This year’s Congress which will be WSAVA’s 41st Congress, will be held in Colombia from September 27-30, 2016.

The WSAVA is described as “an association of associations” with its membership comprising of veterinary organizations that are concerned with companion animals, across the world.  At this time, the WSAVA has 96 member and affiliate associations that represent more than 158,000 individual veterinarians from around the world.

This year, the AOVET Foundation was accepted to hold a seminar on Small Animal Orthopedics and Traumatology, which will be a pre-congress activity scheduled for September 26, 2016. SGUSVM’s Dr. Tomas Guerrero will Chair this seminar and also deliver four state of the art lectures. SGUSVM congratulates Dr. Guerrero and wishes him every success.
