The XXIV Panamerican Congress of Veterinary Science PANVET 2014, which ended yesterday in Havana, hosted the Third Anglo-Cuban Conference of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery that helped strengthen the technical-professional collaboration between Cuban and British specialists.
Jan Wade, representing the prestigious British veterinary clinic White Referals, recalled that in 2010 the director of the clinic, Dick White, began working with Cuban Aniplant as part of an exchange project that continues today.
British specialists travel to Cuba every year for conferences through the National Veterinary Scientific Council, so they decided to take the opportunity to participate in such an important event as PANVET, said Wade.
She explained that the exchange has its mayor activities in sterilization surgery of pets on the Caribbean island, but also develops in other directions.
"In addition to sending medical equipment we have other projects, for example, British vets are trained and learn in Cuban institutions that have a prestigious academic staff," said the specialist.
