Join us for two days of the latest thinking on the treatment and management of veterinary osteoarthritis in Leicester on 22nd and 23rd May!

Here's what some of the 2023 delegates had to say:
• “The congress lived up to its billing: lots of great ideas to take back to practice.”
• “What a brilliant, inclusive and extremely positive congress.”
• “The mutual respect that emerges when everyone from the different disciplines is in the same room is so important.”
• “Consistency in message and management of OA is so important. We must be the source of best advice.” 
• “There was a tangible air of positivity as nurses, vets, physios and rehabilitation professionals engaged on equal terms, to share experiences, review cases, and discuss the future of OA management.” 
• “The congress reinforced the need for a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach where we work as equals, striving to achieve the best and most appropriate outcomes for our patients.” 
• “What made this congress unique and special was the lack of defined vet, nurse, rehab streams; instead running a unique programme of presentations open to all, encouraging effective collaboration.” 
• “It’s critical to our understanding of osteoarthritis that we continue to knowledge-share and work collaboratively through a One Health approach, in the best interest of our patients.”
• “A diverse but inclusive group of vets, vet nurses, physiotherapists, hydrotherapists, massage therapists and other professionals all working in the field of osteoarthritis and pain management spent two days sharing experience and knowledge, in a space where everyone’s opinion was respected and heard.”
• “So many people finding it a difficult choice between excellent streams of lectures highlighting the importance of OA in dogs, cats and horses.”
• “We are all co-operating for better animal welfare so communication between vets, nurses, physiotherapists, scientists, industry and others is essential.”
• “It was a great event that sets a high bar for next year.”
And saving perhaps the best for last:
• “Best congress I’ve ever attended.”

Organised by The Veterinary Edge on behalf of the Veterinary Osteoarthritis Alliance (VOA), and sponsored by Animalcare (Platinum) and Vetoquinol (Gold) – with more to be announced soon – the 2024 event is gearing up to be another not to be missed.
