Veterinary Professional

We believe that continuous training is the basis for community growth.
Since we are responsible for animal health, we are aware of the importance of the work veterinary surgeons perform every day.
And it is because of this that we participate in the most important events of the sector by actively supporting them, and we also create new training opportunities around the country.
Furthermore, we support chartered professional bodies and associations in order to help further spread knowledge, which, in turn, will guarantee pets’ health and veterinarians’ work.
We also carry out our own training courses both on-site and online, thanks to the possibilities offered to us by today’s technology.
