CRA Presentations | 2020


BSAVA Congress is built on a foundation of community and learning.
An integral part of the 4-day event is the diverse programme of clinical abstracts where researchers alongside vets, VN’s and practice staff share the latest research, unusual case reports and novel procedures.
The Clinical abstract can be on any veterinary subject, such as announcing the preliminary results of a new study, describing interesting cases or discussing new techniques - submissions from those in general practice are especially encouraged.
In 2020, 126 oral & 46 poster abstracts under a wide range of disciplines, were accepted and due to be presented at Congress. These oral and poster clinical abstract presentations are FREE to read as part of the BSAVA Congress Proceedings


The Abstract Sessions |


A large selection of the Congress 2020 research abstracts were presented live over two days (Thursday 14 and Friday 15 May), using an online video conferencing solution; shared with a veterinary audience invited from across the UK and worldwide. 

We were delighted to provide the opportunity to unite colleagues across the veterinary world, who would otherwise have not had the opportunity to both present their work and keep up to date with the latest research produced by BSAVA members and colleagues.

This event was part of a number of online solutions being provided by the Association in the wake of the cancelled BSAVA Congress 2020.

The Abstract Sessions | Recordings


Recordings from this online event are now available to BSAVA members & non-members - For Free!
