WestVet Home

The Western Meeting of Poultry Clinicians and Pathologists (WestVet) is entering its 33rd year in 2022.  The success of the previous meetings allows us to predict an equally successful and informative WestVet on Tuesday May 17th, 2022.

WestVet was established 33 years ago (as of 2022) as a platform for case reports and burning questions, a format that proved to be successful and popular.  British Columbia is home to a vibrant poultry industry and a highly regarded AAVLD accredited provincial diagnostics laboratory.  The density of the poultry industry in BC offers a great opportunity for veterinarians and poultry experts to visit poultry operations and businesses, including feed manufacturers and hatcheries.  For these reasons, Abbotsford has been an excellent location for this event. In recent years, attendance at WestVet has been expanded to include other poultry scientists, including nutritionists, engineers, and geneticists, who focus on disease prevention strategies.

Please find below a call for case reports for WestVet.

This will be held at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Centre 36035 North Parallel Rd, Abbotsford, BC.

A working lunch is sponsored for meeting participants.

We trust you will continue to support WestVet this May.

The agenda for WestVet will follow the format of previous years and will begin with case reports.

Our ever-popular, informal “Burning Question Period” will follow, with interesting and controversial topics for an in-depth discussion.

We would ask that you please register as soon as possible as spaces will fill up quickly.

The registration deadline is April 30, 2022.
