15.11.2019 Successful anniversary of the veterinarian seminar sera and VDA/DGHT are happy about participant number being high again The veterinarian seminar took place already for the fifth time in the VDA/DGHT Expertise Center West in Heinsberg. The renowned lecturers from veterinary medicine as well as the specialized pet branch offered interesting lectures, e.g. about the behavior of fish and its evaluation, or about gentle catching and correct introduction of fish in the specialized pet trade. An exciting mixture of theory and practice was pictured by the broad variety of knowledgeable experts. Both established veterinarians as well as officially appointed veterinarians were among the 50 participants. Besides the seminar on November 13, the additional excursion to the Cologne zoo with a guided aquarium tour also was popular. So the exchange among the guests could also be continued on the following day in an exciting atmosphere. There was praise especially also for Dieter Untergasser, who largely contributes to the success of the seminars as their initiator and conductor. The big request confirms the necessity for educational and information offers about animal health in aquarium care, said Prof. Dr. Thomas Blaha, Dipl. ECVPH and ECPHM as a board member of the Tierärztliche Vereinigung für Tierschutz e.V. in his address. Of course, plenty of further education, training and seminars are scheduled for the forthcoming year. Announcement will take place in time via the usual channels.
