Royal Canin 2023 Vet Symposium dedicated to vet nurses

For the first time ever, Royal Canin Vet Symposium for 2023 will be dedicated to veterinary nurses, providing delegates with the latest in management and nutrition

Royal Canin will hold its 2023 Vet Symposium on April 25 and 26 through a hybrid format.

The event will happen in Montpellier (France) and online via a dedicated platform.

Veterinarians, vet nurses, students and pet professionals from all over the world will be able to learn about the newest forward-thinking and innovative work on management and nutrition.

For the first time, Royal Canin Vet Symposium will focus on vet nurses.

With 387,000 worldwide vet nurses collaborating daily with 465,000 veterinarians (based on internal data), these overlooked yet crucial caretakers face their own pressing societal and career challenges.

Royal Canin has always been committed to helping and supporting the pet care industry, which is experiencing multi-faceted workforce issues and a strong demand for more veterinary services.

So, the company wants to play its role and engage in conversations to help foster a sound, healthy veterinary ecosystem.

What to expect at Royal Canin Vet Symposium

  • Renowned world-class experts in time management and nutrition, including The New York Times bestseller Julie Morgenstern and Addie Reinhard, founder and director of mentorship and professional development program for recent veterinary graduates MentorVet, will host roundtables on “self-care strategies for caretakers, and how to take control of your time” and “what to do when your clients cannot afford everything”, respectively
  • Vet nurses, including Georgia Woods-Lee, weight management clinic nurse at the University of Liverpool’s Small Animal Teaching Hospital, and Nicola Lakeman, head medical nurse at Plymouth Veterinary Group, will discuss the joys and challenges of their invaluable profession as well as healthy weight and nutrition myth busters

“For 55 years, Royal Canin has been striving to create a strong and mutually beneficial collaboration with the veterinary ecosystem,” said Cécile Coutens, global Royal Canin president.

“These professions are crucial to the health and well-being of pets, who, in turn, make our lives better.”

More than an event in partnership with MSD and VETGirl, Royal Canin Vet Symposium is also a digital platform.

Participants are granted unique access to an immersive experience driven by the company’s purpose: !A Better World For Pets!”

Virtual visitors can explore the Vet Symposium Village, which includes “About Royal Canin”, “Meet our Partners”, “Media Gallery” and “The Live Stage”. All are dedicated to exclusive videos, lectures and much more.

True to its principle of mutuality, Royal Canin will have it available to most by having it translated into Chinese, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, French and German. All content will also be on replay until the end of July.
