The WAVD aims to promote the global development of veterinary dermatology. We are genuinely motivated to help veterinarians that would not otherwise be able to attend the Congress with financial support. By providing this support, we are striving to achieve a sustainable platform for long term development of skills and knowledge in veterinary dermatology for veterinarians and technical staff in geographic regions with limited access to continuing education.
