ROMANIA

 

Dr Constantin Ifteme – Center of Veterinary Endoscopy and Minimum Invasive Surgery

 

Vets on the Balkans it is more than a promoting platform of all successful projects from the veterinary medicine in the Balkans region.  It can be compared with the Olympics of the veterinarians from this geographical area, with major involvement in training and continuous learning of the veterinary community.

 

 

Dr Iuliana Ionascu, DVM , PhD, member ESVO

 

Vets on the Balkans is the meeting point of the specialists, the friends and of the people who have the joy of sharing their experience in areas of interest in veterinary medicine.Vets on the Balkans helped us by placing us in direct contact with specialists and taught us how to work together. The first step is done. The next step is one that I want from the bottom of my heart:  to write therapeutic guides together.So, Vets on the Balkans, my dream has to be your accomplishment in the years to come.I love you for what you created. Good luck on your wonderful journey!

 

 Dr Alexandru Diaconescu, DVM, PhD, Senior Lecturer

 

I think it’s a great idea! All the vets in the Balkans area can learn from each other’s experience, we can share opinions, interesting clinical cases, etc.

I wish you good luck!

 

Dr Rares Capitan , DVM, resident ECVD

I think is a good interesting idea. I really hope that this project will  continue for a long time and collect many vets as want to share their experience. So the whole community from the Balkans will progress in a good way.

 

Dr Ana Maria Boncea, DVM, resident ECVD

 BULGARIA

Dr Vladislav Zlatinov – Central Vet Clinic in Sofia, Bulgaria

 It is so great to have such a professional forum, connecting Balkans (and not only) vets! I literally see people from different countries in the region, getting to know each other because of your journal.  The “Vets on The Balkans” deserve all the compliments for your great positive initiative and work!

 

Dr Stefan Savov- Ditton  Reach Veterinary Surgery, England

 The journal is a really brilliant idea. I read all the articles. I find some really good examples there. It has proved that veterinarians on Balkans are no worse than the colleagues in the western countries. I wish you more and more interesting cases shared on the pages of the journal and lots of luck.

 

 

Dr Mila Bobadova ( Veterinary Clinic “ Dobro Hrumvane”  in Sofia, Bulgaria)

 We needed that kind of journal at Balkans, a connection spot and an open source. It brings veterinary medicine to a new level, but most of all it helps all the vets from Balkans to get to know each other. For that I am very thankful and I am sure it will make a difference.

 

Dr Svetlina Aleksandrova ( Veterinary Clinic “Light Vet” in Sandanski, Bulgaria)

 Vets on the Balkans is great new way for communication and learning. The reality is that we can not know everything for any condition. The learning process continue until the end of our lives. I love the case reports – a lot of photos and good explications. The Learn and Travel initiative will make a lot of collegues better in their prefered section of veterinary medecine. Please, dr Gancheva, continue to do what you do in the best way – connect!

 

Dr Liliya Mihailova ( Veterinary Clinic “ United Veterinary Clinic “ in Varna, Bulgaria )

 According to me ” Vets on the Balkans “o is one of the greatest way for many veterinarians to communicate and share knowledge and experience. Because is a new and modern way to connect veterinarians not only from countries of Balkan peninsula but also from countries all over the world. Moreover It provides the latest scientific information about news in veterinary medicine and useful personal professional experience.

 

Dr Spas Spasov  ( Veterinary Clinic “ United Veterinary Clinic “ in Varna, Bulgaria )

 I want to extend my greetings to the great work you do with the magazine. It is very interesting and useful. I wish to become more known. I wish to be ever visited. I think the idea to united vets on the Balkans is realized.

 

 

Dr Vanya Stoyanova – Veterinary Clinic Provet in Plovdiv, Bulgaria

 Useful  veterinary journal,creative realized idea.
Like to read the letters ,interesting posts ,new information for me and classified my level where I am on the market with the Balkan colleagues .Receive information for future symposiums,Conferences and Webinars. Thank You  Luba Gancheva & Co
Wish you continue enjoying with your fantastic work!!!

 

 Dr Dimitar Djambazov Veterinary Clinic Sofia in Sofia, Bulgaria

 Vets on the Balkans is a unique in its respective category as a journal who strives to connect the countries on the Balkans- a highly diverse and interesting set of countries.

The journal provides easy-to-reach and concise practical knowledge as well as the opportunity for interviews, presentations and step-by-step guidelines for management of specific problems.

From where I stand as a practitioner the case reports are by far my favorite method of acquiring new information in the veterinary field. That is of course after one has a strong basic knowledge on a given subject.

And here’s where the next indispensible role of “Vets on the Balkans” becomes evident. The journal not only acts as a mean of learning and developing oneself as a veterinary professional with blog posts but also serves as a connecting point between the countries and veterinarians in the region, as to promote and organize practical sessions, continuing education projects and various externships. This is indispensible help, strongly appreciated by many and luckily gaining more and more popularity among animal caregivers on the Balkans.
The effort invested in the journal by its creator and her collaborators is immense and undoubtedly greatly acknowledged as we all know how hard it can be to sustain such a project, be a practicing veterinarian at the same time and have a life from time to time as well.

As a young and still lacking a certain amount of experience, vet, I appreciate the Vets on the Balkans journal as a source of CPD, but also as a opportunity to reach and connect to our neighbors on the Balkans.

 

 

CROATIA
 Dr Emil Ofner – Veterinary Clinic More in Sibenik, Croatia

 Task for every journal is to have a good impact factor on its readers. Vets on the Balkans journal doesn’t do just that, but it also successfully ties up vets from different Balkan countries and others. It is the first of its kind in the Balkans and for sure it will facilitate further development of the veterinary profession. Hopefully it will become a great online tool for improvements of veterinary skills and knowledge.

 Dr Mario Kreszinger – Veterinary Clinic Kreszinger in Zagreb, Croatia

 It very useful easy approachable source of informations we need in everyday Jobs routine.

 

Dr Nikola Bunevski– Veterinary Clinic Kreszinger in Zagreb, Croatia

 Sharing is caring. Every information is priceless. We are working near each other we have similar problems and questions, it will be better for each of us if we share those questions and problems to one another, we will come to answers faster and painless. Vets on the Balkans can serve that purpose.Thank you for having me.

 

 

SERBIA

 Dr Zoran Loncar- Veterinary Clinic Novak in Belgrade, Serbia

 Vets on the Balkan is refreshment and result of people with good energy and wish to improve our region. We live in small countries and if we cooperate together we have better chance to improve ourselves.

 

Dr Nikoleta Novak- Veterinary Clinic Novak in Belgrade, Serbia

I read the interview you had with our colleague Nikola Bunevski, and I think he said it perfectly; “Sharing is caring. Vets on the Balkans can serve that purpose””Vets on Balkans” is really a great idea and I do wish you all the best on this exciting and high-minded mission.

 

SLOVENIA

 Dr Marko Novak- Klinika Loka in the city Škofja Loka in Slovenia

 I came across VTB when I was scrolling down the facebook and I saw these interesting articles from guys doing great job. I think it is one of those starters that help people to become better at what they do.

 I like reading. One day I found myself reading a case from Vets on The Balkans Online Journal. This subject was one of my interesting areas in veterinary medicine. With this article, I couldn’t imagine a good collaboration and friendship start. With Dr. Luba Gancheva’s support, I was invited to seminar in Bucharest. As I see until today, the journal improves day by day. Instead of giving important information, this journal combines the colleagues on the Balkans. If you want to be a part of a great friendship and have a vulnerable data, you must start to read the journal as fast as you can.10334323_1650417485231859_7490271749546982451_n

Veterinary Faculty in Bucharest ,Romania

History of the Faculty

Most of the professors who have established the faculty,were part of French and German education system.

In 1881 was established the first form of veterinary education and then in 1832  was introduced the first class of veterinary art.

In 1856 Dr Carol Davida established the first medical school in Bucharest,in which had also classes of animal diseases.

In 1861 the veterinary medicine has become independent and the have create veterinary programme.

In 1921 by law,the school of veterinary medicine became Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. In Romanian Veterinary Faculty has been only one in that period on the Balkans. Many students from neighbour countries like Bulgaria, Greece and Yugoslavia graduated there.

Till 1948 was integrated as a part of Bucharest University. And after that it became part of University of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine in Bucharest.

From 1887 till now the faculty is localizated in the same area.

When I entered the yard I felt the severity of a long history. The noise of many students was like a melody, or I felt this because romanian language sounds nice. I saw a huge building with many people with animals, waiting for examination, it was the clinic of the Faculty.

At the entrance I saw the notice “Bine ai venit la Clinica Facultatii de Medicina Veterinara Bucuresti” or Welcome in Veterinary clinic of Veterinary Faculty in Bucharest. Impressive!

I went in teh building and I was in a big reception room. The clinic has different departments: Obstetrics and Gynecology, Internal disease, Surgery, Ophthalmology center, Imaging sector, Sector for Haemodialysis, huge laboratory department and Pharmacy. Dr Iuliana Ionascu is the responsible person for this clinic. She shared with us all these things and we had a nice chats about the projects of the Faculty.

We would like to express our gratitude to Dr Iuliana Ionascu for sharing all these things with us .

In this Faculty we can see how the things supposed to be done. We all live on the Balkans and we all know how hard is to involve innovation in our Faculties, but here this is reality. The team of Vets on The Balkans is proud to be part of their work for a few hours.
