    Veterinarians wanting to expand their knowledge and skills can access a wide variety of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programs on offer in 2014. Due to the success of last year’s UVet conference, two will be held this year along with workshops for those wanting to develop their practical skills in ultrasound, endoscopy and minimally invasive surgery and endocrine and cardiorespiratory techniques.
