Annual Scientific Meeting, July 4-6, 2019, Budapest, Hungary

Small Animal Programme

The 2019 small animal programme will again run three parallel full streams:

  • The orthopaedic stream will focus on feline orthopedics and traumatology, orofacial trauma surgery with surgeon’s perspective and dentist’s perspective, stifle surgery including few lectures on meniscal surgery.
  • The soft tissue programme will deal with ear, nose and throat surgery; new technologies in surgery; prostate and perianal surgery.
  • The last stream will be dedicated to video-assisted thoracic surgery and neurosurgery.
The detailed Small Animal programme can be found > here. The programme is continously being updated.

Look outside the box: When planning your days and lectures, the Programme Committee invites you to not only look into your own speciality's programme: Watch out for the little Look outside the box hints in the programme, of which you will find at least one per day in the small animal programme; here the Programme Committee recommends lectures and streams from the large animal programme, which are of interest to small animal delegates, too.


Please find the list of accepted abstracts in the various categories (Resident Forum, Short Communications, Posters) under > this link.

Important note: Final acceptance of abstracts may depend on any issues raised by the reviewers being addressed satisfactorily – individual authors will be contacted directly, and asked to respond within 14 days.

When preparing your lecture, please remember that the attendees of the ECVS congress are board certified surgeons and residents or equivalent. As such, your presentation shall be tailored for specialists and is to be supported by the most recent knowledge, literature and evidence. Please also refer to these tips about lecturing at international meetings and the speaker guidelines with technical instructions (also for posters).
