World Veterinary Day (WVD) will take place globally on 29 April 2017.This event aims to highlight and promote the different facets of the work performed by veterinarians all over the world and to raise awareness of their contribution to improve animal health and welfare, as well as public health. Each year, a different topic is selected by the World Veterinary Association (WVA) and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) which are at the initiative of this event.

As leaders in sourcing and providing the best medical equipment and advice, freelance surgical has a lifelong commitment to share the passion and drive that vets, veterinary nurses, pet owners and animal lovers share when it comes to animal welfare. It’s at the very core of their operation and why the operation is growing from strength to strength.

Reassuringly, and a key factor of improving animal welfare, is the ambition of the surgeons and nurses to develop and improve, ultimately enhancing patient outcomes. The reduction in surgical site infections and recovery times are no doubt a result of better overall clinical expertise.

Freelance Surgical’s Veterinary Director James Towler commented, ‘We have seen real advancements over the past 10 years in human medicine that are filtering across into veterinary. As well as these advancements, we’re seeing a lot more vets approach us to enquire about CPD and workshops to develop their skills and equip them with the knowledge to be able to utilise these advancements.

As a result of the innovations in technology and drive for vets to develop their knowledge, we’re seeing a lot more first opinion practices tackling procedures they would normally have to refer. This ultimately is opening the door to advanced options, and as a result, better experiences for both patient and owner.
