WVS by James Florence. WVS is a UK charity providing a veterinary response to help animals all over the world. From mass rabies and sterilisation campaigns, to wildlife conservation and disaster emergency response, WVS works with local charities providing veterinary training, veterinary supplies, volunteer teams and emergency advice. This webinar will provide you with a background to WVS and how they conduct their effective spay/neuter and vaccination campaigns, including the use of their newly designed data collection app. Details on volunteer opportunities for vets and nurses will be provided, including what a typical trip would include, and for vet students wanting clinical EMS, there will be full details on joining the popular surgical training courses in Thailand and India. Being a part of international veterinary work is on the increase and this webinar will show you what is involved and how you can be a part of it.
