Veterinary ophthalmology is a complex and constantly evolving field, where research, innovation and collaboration are key to advancing pet eye care.

As passionate as we are about animal welfare and eye health, we are proud to announce our participation as sponsors of the 2024 European Congress of the European Association of Veterinary Ophthalmology (ECVO). This annual event is the epicenter of veterinary ophthalmology in Europe, bringing together the best specialists, researchers and practitioners in the field to share knowledge, present scientific advances and make meaningful connections.

Each year, ECVO hosts its annual congress in a major European city, providing a unique platform for the exchange of ideas, discussion of clinical cases and continuous learning. Over four intense days, the congress covers a wide range of topics related to veterinary ophthalmology, from the presentation of pioneering research to the discussion of innovative surgical techniques.

The 2024 program

The 2024 European Association of Veterinary Ophthalmology (ECVO) Congress promises to be exceptional, with a special focus on exotic animal ophthalmology. Under the theme “Ophthalmology of Exotic Animals,” the continuing education program and master class will explore the anatomical and physiological peculiarities of the eyes of reptiles, birds, rabbits and other exotic animals. Experts from Europe and the United States will share their knowledge on ophthalmological examination, husbandry and handling techniques of these animals. In addition, clinical cases, scientific research and advances in the field will be presented, providing a unique opportunity to learn from leaders in veterinary ophthalmology.

The webinar, which will be broadcast in English, is free for all ESVO members and for non-ESVO members, the price will be 30 euros.

The webinar will be given by ophthalmology specialist Teresa Peña, who graduated in Veterinary Medicine from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) in 1987 and received a doctorate from the same university in 1993 with an experimental study on penetrating corneal grafts in dogs.

Teresa Peña completed her ophthalmology residency at the European College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ECVO) in a program at North Carolina State University. Since 1988 she has worked in the Department of Medicine and Surgery of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (UAB) and currently she is an associate professor of ophthalmology and surgery, and head of the Ophthalmology service at the Veterinary Teaching Clinical Hospital (FHCV-UAB).

Likewise, the expert co-directs a postgraduate course in veterinary ophthalmology, to obtain an intermediate degree, as well as residency programs to be part of the ECVO.

Last June 2-5, the annual meeting of the European College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ECVO) was held at the Salzburg Congress Palace in Salzburg (Austria).

Even under the shadow of Covid-19, more than half of the 450 ophthalmologists registered for the congress decided to attend the different conferences in person, travelling from different European countries, such as the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Finland, France, etc. or even from even more distant locations such as America or Asia.

Dr.Vet Pet Care successfully presented its unique and innovative ophthalmological line, indicated for patients with pathologies such as glaucoma, cataracts, retinopathies, dry eye / dry keratoconjunctivitis and palpebral pathologies. This range of nutraceutical products for veterinary ophthalmology has natural, effective and specific components to help alleviate, prevent or improve the symptoms of different ocular pathologies.

Both companies and veterinary specialists showed their interest in the different products as well as the possibility of acquiring them in their respective countries. In this way. Dr+Vet Pet Care was able to reaffirm its commitment to promote veterinary training, establish itself as a trusted brand among ophthalmologists and strengthen its relationship with veterinarians, in order to provide products that help improve the health of animals, their quality of life and highlight the importance of preventing certain ocular pathologies.
