Editorial Editor: Johnny Cave Publisher: Vetlink Media Solutions Advertising and Production: Madaleen Schultheiss The SAEVA congress seems like a very long time ago already. I was fortunate to be able to attend this year and it was an incredible event with an amazing lineup of international speakers. All credit to Terry and the congress organizing committee and Madaleen and her team for putting on a great show. The congress report and photographs in this edition of the EHU should be a nice reminder for those that attended or an interesting read for those that did not. Cover: Nicolene C.
