    The wall of Swallowing Dangers - AKA Wall of Death

    Well today I am grateful that there is free coffee available… Doesn’t taste great but at least it has caffeine as I am starting to get tired. Today I woke up to find that I had been included in the BSAVA Congress Times…

    On a serious note for a moment I found this which I think really highlights the importance of education (especially as the drug this company was selling costs around £40 a dose!).

    Now any of these items can kill a dog, and I was told that even vets and vet nurses struggled to name more than a few when asked. Behind me on the wall are: rat poison, grapes, chocolate, onions, paracetamol, garlic, chewing gum, raisins, and missing from its bowl is a rubber duck! Please do remember that it is harder to pet proof a home than to childproof it!

    Today in addition to the lectures I wanted to goto for the Avian Medicine stream which were really great I also had to attend the BSAVA Student Rep meeting. This then turned into a invitation to the Petsavers Charity 40th Birthday party (yes the cakes were good!).

    I was then invited by PLH Medical to judge their twitter selfie competition to win a Diagnostic Ultrasound manual from CRC Press with the winner being selected from the PDSA pet charity!

    This evening instead of the BSAVA Part Night I decided to goto the unofficial Folk Night which is held each year next door. Now this was something I found my first BSAVA Congress but couldn’t find the year after even though I tried… In addition to the great live music…BSAVA 2014 Malthouse Folk NightI also found my very old friend Old Rosie which was an added bonus as Slovakia is a cider free country…
