On June 8 – 10 Lviv hosted annual XV International Scientific and Practical Veterinary Conference on Small Animals – «USAVA 2016». For many years USAVA brings together old and new friends, colleagues and all those passionate about the veterinary world. The participants of the Congress were veterinary scientists and practitioners from Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Moldova, Hungary, Latvia, Slovakia, Belgium, Estonia, Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, as well as students, representatives of zoo veterinary field and pet breeders.

This year the conference took place in the congress-centre «Lviv» situated at the following address: 7 Chornovol Avenue, Lviv. The constant change of the conference venue is related to the annual increase in the number of people who wish to participate in this large-scale vet event.

This three-day conference took place in four conference halls which hosted five sections, 18 reporters, five master-classes.

This year the event was co-organized by the Lviv National University of Veterinary Medicine and Biotechnology named after Stepan Gzhytsky in the person of the Veterinary Faculty Dean who was kind enough to provide the necessary equipment for master-classes and the conference organizers are extremely grateful for it. For many years a devouted organizer of the conference is the President of the Ukrainian Association of Small Animals Veterinary Medicine Vladlen Ushakov.

The year we have had 512 participants! We are grateful to everyone who has become an inseparable part of that outstanding event.

On behalf of organizers of USAVA 2016 we express our deepest gratitude and respect to all the partners of the event: official sponsors – «AVZ» and «Trifar», official sponsor of the master-classes – «Teleoptic», sponsors – «Arsenal», «Kormotech», «Grand Sherif», «Hills», «VetExpert», «The World of Veterinary» and participants of the exhibition – «Bayer», «Acana», «Royal Canin», «Suzirya», «Arterium», «MSD», «Zoetis», «Frakishtak», «Triplex», as well as to all those who contributed to organizing of this event. We thank you for your hard work, huge patience and personal contribution of each of you into this three-day veterinary marathon that met all the expectations, for its level, professionalism and, what is the most important, for the result that our team wanted to achieve and has been working so hard.

This year we managed to bring together representatives of many countries: Wojtek Nizhansky (Poland), Zdzislaw Kelbovich (Poland), Krzysztof Kubiak (Poland), Fernando Parra (France), Maria Del Rossio (Spain), Leonid Stoyanov (Ukraine), Ekaterina Chernaya (Ukraine), Stefan Wolff (Germany), Vladimir Chernov (Ukraine), Maria Savinkina (Russia), Marina Kucherenko (Ukraine), Elmira Tomilina (Russia), Vera Olejnik (Russia), Ivan Stoikov (Ukraine), Dmitriy Berezhnoi (Ukraine), Sergei Shulga (Ukraine), Inna Makarina (Ukraine), Denis Seleznyov (Ukraine), Artem Kostiuk (Ukraine), Natalia Ignatenko (Ukraine).

Thus, the conference included the following fields of veterinary medicine: surgery, oncology, reproductology, ultrasound diagnostic of organs of abdominal cavity, EchoCG and Doppler sonography, veterinary management, ophthalmology, traumatology, reptile and rodent diseases, and also absolute novelty in the veterinary world – conflictology and veterinary business psychology. All the sections were followed up by master-classes or workshops, which allowed not only to master but also hone practical skills and also to have informal communication with the speakers. Judging from the impressions of the participants such format of conducting master-classes allows getting to know something new as well as inspiring further developments in this field. USAVA has a “New Talents” program, so it is possible that soon some of our inspired listeners will also become conference speakers and will share their knowledge with the next generation.

Thank you for knowledge, experience, motivation, good company and excellent organization! I recommend all the colleagues to visit such events, and, believe me, you’ll never regret it!!!

USAVA Congress 2016 )))

Unreal emotions, emotions, emotions!!!

To tell the truth, so many days have passed already, but I still feel this warm atmosphere, I am filled with new thoughts and ideas and lots of positive emotions.

Great thanks to the organizers — Vladlen Ushakov and his team! Everything was fantastic and if somebody says that something was wrong, let this person organize a similar event))) Many thanks once again! Well done! Wish you success and prosperity!!!

I am thankful to all the lecturers, and in particular Elmira Tomilina. I have no words to express my feelings! If one looks at me when I share my impressions about this person, everything is written on my face. If you have such a teacher in your life, not just learn from her, but live this day with her, breathe the air together with her, enjoy the very fact that there is such a person in your life. Sometimes this can change everything in your life.

Maria Savinkina is a ray of light, a positive person and a mega expert in her field. If you start your own business, ask her. If you think that you are the cleverest, the most experienced and know what’s what, just go to her not to feel the mistakes on your own skin)))

Masha and Elmira! You are great, fantastic, amazing, beautiful ladies and real professionals! Thank you for sharing your experience!

Oleg Plevinskiy

Good afternoon! This congress focused not only on the topical medical issues, but also on the topic of communication between doctors and patients, and very often it is even more important than treatment. One can be a good doctor, but a bad communicator, and all your medical skills re downgraded by this mere fact. It’s a very topical issue. I came back home charged with new ideas. I am still devouring what I heard. Thank you very much for organizing this event! I like Piggy and lots of tasty food in the restaurant. It’s obvious you did not try to save on us. Many thanks once again!

USAVA Congress 2016 in Lviv left the most positive and happy impressions.

At the congress you immediately felt this fantastic friendly atmosphere of mutual understanding and professionalism, which makes it really pleasant to share your knowledge and experience with colleagues.

I want to emphasize great organization of lectures and technical provision of master-classes that ensured comfortable learning environment.

Excursion about amazing ancient streets of Lviv... Meetings and communication with colleagues in this warm atmosphere of ancient Lviv create an impression of a real professional holiday.

I want to express my deepest gratitude to Vladlen Ushakov for his hard work in organizing this great event.

Sincerely and gratefully, veterinary ophthalmologist V. Olejnik
