FVE President endorses Blue Dog

The Federation of Veterinarians in Europe (FVE) is an umbrella organisationof National veterinary associations from 38 European Countries invplved in all animal species. The newly elected President is Cristophe Buhot from France. He recently met Blue Dog chairman Tiny De Keuster in Istanbul.

Cristophe is very supportive of the Blue Dog programme, especially as this fits well with the FVE theme on "one medicine" - stressing the close links between human and animal health.

Website features at top European vet conference

The Federation of European Companion Animal Veteranary Associations (FECAVA) held their recent annual conference in the beautiful city of Istanbul. Not only did the delegates enjoy the sun and wonderful architecture of the city, but were brought up to date with the developments of the Blue Dog website.

Chairman Tiny DeKeuster and Board member Sarah Heath are seen taking a well earned break. 


Dog Bites continue to be topical

The Wylie Veterinary Centre in Upminster,UK, recently held its successful annual open day. Clients enjoyed all the fun of the fair as well as a chance to see behind the scenes at the clinic. Information about dog bites and the development of the Blue Dog programme was displayed and continued to be of interest to clients.

Lesson Plans for teachers hailed as useful resource

The new Blue Dog website includes a "Teachers' Toolbox. This is a collection of ideas and downloadable resources that can be used in the classroom. This has been developed by teachers from Hacton and Scargill schools in the London Borough of Havering, and includes video clips of the suggested lesson plans in action. This format is thought to be especially useful for teachers of other countries who might not be familiar with some of the UK jargon.

It is hoped to have this material available by September 2011.

Ray Butcher receives Dogs Trust Award

Ray Butcher was presented with the Phyllis Mayer Argus Medal by Philip Daubney, the Chairman of Dogs Trust, in recognition of long and distinguished service on behalf of Dogs. The presentation was made at the Palace of Westminster, London.

In accepting the award, Ray stressed the fact that it is impossible to consider animal health and welfare in isolation from that of humans. As veterinarians, we should be promoting family and community health, as well as humanity in general. These thoughts are very much in tune with the aims and objectives of the Blue Dog programme.
