International Summit for Urban Animal Strategies
October 19 – 22, 2011
Fairmont Chateau Montebello, Quebec
This sixth annual gathering of Industry leaders is being held in eastern Canada for the first time. As we are learning, Animal Health and Wellness is directly related to human health in our communities. For this reason the 2011 agenda may facilitate the most strategic conversation to be brought forward to a Summit. In addition, we will recognize Vet 2011 an important historical benchmark for Veterinary medicine. Veterinary science has played an important role in our lives for more than 250 years and we will celebrate this achievement with Veterinary colleagues from across our industry.
