Vision Australia, the leading national provider of blindness and low vision services and advocator for the blindness and low vision community, has announced a veterinary symposium to coincide with the upcoming IGDF Seminar & Breeders Workshop.

To be held in Melbourne at the state-of-the-art Vision Australia Seeing Eye Dogs headquarters on 11 and 12 September 2018, the event will bring together leading Australian and international veterinarians and experts in the dog guide, shelter and kennel medicine industry.

The Symposium will focus on veterinary conditions, treatments and new research specific to the breeds, and veterinary challenges involved in producing and training dog guides—with discussions around subjects such as early intervention surgery for hip dysplasia; new options for elbow dysplasia; parasitology; shelter medicine; nutrition; and tricuspid and mitral valve disease in retrievers.
