WSAVA Offers Neurology CE to Balkan Member Associations

logo-white-backgroundArtboard-1The World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) is offering a series of one-day seminars on neurology to its member associations in the Balkan countries.


The sessions will be led by Dr Thomas Flegel, Head of Neurology and Neurosurgery at the Department for Small Animals, Leipzig University, Germany. He will show delegates how to use a neurological examination to determine a problem and the most likely causes. He will then use interactive case-based workups of common neurological presentations to discuss how to approach dogs suffering from seizures or the most common spinal diseases, as well as those with peripheral neuropathies.  The sessions will take place as follows:


5 March Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina Contact
7 May Skopje, North Macedonia  
9 May Priština, Kosovo  
To be confirmed Tirana, Albania  
15 June Venue, Podgorica, Montenegro  


Dr Lea Kreszinger, a member of the WSAVA’s Continuing Education (CE) Committee and founder of a small animal clinic in Sesvete, Croatia, has organized this CE for WSAVA members in the Balkan region.  She said: “Neurological cases can be daunting for general practitioners – a fact confirmed by a recent WSAVA learning needs survey, which highlighted neurology as a key topic on which our members wanted more education.

“We’re delighted respond by offering these free one-day sessions with Dr Flegel, a highly experienced practitioner and teacher. He will demonstrate that neurology doesn’t have to be complicated and show delegates how they can improve the quality of life of dogs with neurological problems.”


For further information and to register, veterinarians are asked to contact their country member association.
