BSAVA launches BSAVA Science webinar series

17 July 2020

The BSAVA has launched an exciting series of science webinars, to take a closer look at some of the papers published in the Journal of Small Animal Practice (JSAP). In each webinar the authors of featured papers will discuss the results and application of their papers with a panel and answer questions submitted by the audience in advance.

The first four webinars, which are free to access in the BSAVA Webinar Library, cover four different papers:

  • Prescription rebellion: reduction of antibiotic use by small animal veterinarians
  • Xenotransfusion of canine blood to cats: a review of 49 cases and their outcome
  • Long-term biological variability and the generation of a new reference interval for plasma N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide in Labrador retrievers
  • Retrospective characterisation and outcome of canine idiopathic mesenteric purulent lymphadenitis and lymph node abscesses at a teaching hospital from 2005 to 2015

Nicola Di Girolamo, editor of JSAP said: “This webinar series shines a light on selected papers in JSAP and allows us to consider how these findings may impact clinical practice, ultimately leading to evidence-based veterinary medicine. Discussing the research with the authors – experts in their field – really helps to bring the papers to life.”

JSAP is the journal of the BSAVA and also the official scientific journal of the World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA). The journal covers veterinary medicine and surgery relating to dogs, cats and other companion animals. The articles selected for webinar episodes include those that are relevant to primary care practice in addition to those covering topical subject matters.

Any authors of papers published in JSAP that are interested in recording a webinar episode should contact
