    Hello there! You are very welcome to this special, bonus episode of The Waiting Room!

    Just in case you’ve been hiding under a rock the last while and aren’t blindingly aware, one of the biggest dates on the veterinary calendar is almost upon us.

    Yes, on April 4th, thousands of you are going to land in Birmingham for what promises to be an incredible few days at the BSAVA Congress 2019.

    Don’t worry is you’re head is spinning, but ours is too, just a tad. There is so much going on over the four dats , it’s easy to get confused about what to do, what talks to attend, so on this mini episode, I’ll give you a little bit of a highlight reel!

    Thursday, 4th at 4 PM, Hall 1 you’ll be welcomed by BSAVA President Philip Lhermette followed by the prestigious BSAVA Awards, giving props to the unsung heroes of small animal medicine. One lady who’s up for an award is friend of Covetrus the lovely Danielle Greenberg from the award nominated Liverpool Vets. Check out www.theliverpoolvets.co.uk

    We’re rooting for you here, Danielle! That night, get the popcorn out for Mama Mia and it’s follow up., Here We Go Again Friday night.
    If film ain’t your thing, you can pop on your Sunday best and head over to the stunning Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery for a decadent evening of drinks and food, all in the company of tori Handsley, harpist extraordinaire.
    And Sandals are the ready because the V19 Beach Party on Saturday night is sure to be a crowd pleaser with acts like Xfactor’s Duke; Guitarist to the stars Mark Walby, who’s worked with the likes of Cheryl and the Saturdays, and Frazer lepford. And he’s actually touted as the next Ed Sheeran. So, eh no pressure there pal!

    By day, congress will play host to a veritable Aladdin’s cave of treasure in the form of lectures and talks from some of the industry’s biggest players. So, who’s on the Agenda I hear you ask?

    Laura Black, Carolin Crowe, JD Foster, Ron Ofri, and as an added bonus, Covetrus are partnering up with BSAVA on talks from Gillian Page, Mickey Tivers, Miles Russell and Ruth Wilis. So, 450 hours of lectures, 30 streams. If only you could be bilocate, eh? There will also be a series of wetlabs where you can get your hands dirty.

    In the exhibitor zone, you’ll meet dozens of your favourite brands, and the Covetrus team will be there at Stand C31, so make sure you pop along for a few treats you won’t want to miss. We’ll have plenty of prizes on stand, talks from the talented team in software solutions, and, you know them and love them, we’ll have our diagnostics, equipment and consultancy specialist on hand to answer your burning questions.
