This grant is meant to foster veterinary dermatology education in less well-funded countries. By providing financial support to highly motivated veterinarians from diverse geographic areas, who wish to attend the annual ESVD-ECVD congress or the world congress. As a sponsor you will help to nurture a new generation of dermatologists to bring them into our derm family.

What a great experience was for me the 30th annual congress of ESVD-ECVD!
Dubrovnik is not just one of the most popular touristic destination but also the city with one of the oldest still operating pharmacies in the world and the place where the quarantine was first practiced!
To make a parallel with the pharmacies – how the dermatologic services would survive without drugs?! Especially prednisolone?! ☺ And even more important point how organizations like ESVD could make such nice event without the pharmaceutical industries?! It`s a good place to thank all companies and ESVD for your great work and efforts to make us feel and transmit the spirit of this congress. Staying in the drug context I would like to mention one of the Veterinary Dermatology fathers and one of his lectures this year in Dubrovnik namely Danny Scott and Feline Dermatology. The most important sentence when we speak about cutaneous adverse drug reactions is Danny Scott`s maxim: All drugs are guilty until proven innocent!
To make a parallel with the new ideas and development – ESVD-ECDV congresses are always the exact place to share all that is coming. Thierry Olivry spoke about anti IgE – chimera. Something promising, another future weapon in the war CAD – veterinary dermatologists.
Thank you ESVD for giving me the chance to be part from 30th annual congress!

Reports from grantees 2017:
Dear ESVD Board members and Grant donators!
My sincere thanks for the travel grant, as it gave me this wonderful opportunity to visit the 29th ESVD–ECVD Congress 2017 in Lausanne. All lectures were perfect, some topics were especially new to me, such as Erythema multiforme, Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis, and Epidermal drug reactions (K. Linder), and Cutaneous adverse events in oncologic patients (L. Ferrer). Thanks to the excellent organization, there was time to communicate with colleagues. It was a great opportunity to get answers to my questions from the best dermatologists in the world, and also Congress gave me an opportunity to find a speakers for the Symposium in Russia.
Warm regards, Anna Gerke
For ESVD travel grant 2017
I would like to say thank you for giving me this wonderful opportunity and experience. In ESVD conference, I met many veterinarians, specialists and professors from around the world. It was nice to meet them and have a chance to share some stories about case study. Many speakers talked in various topics and aspects of veterinary dermatology. Most topics in conference pointed in canine atopic dermatitis but atopic eczema in human was included too. It was precious lectures that open new viewpoints of diagnosis and treatments. In particular cutting edge programme, the contents of these lectures were so attractive and interesting. It is incredible to know that some human studies could apply in veterinary fields. Moreover, in oral poster presentations, many young veterinarians and famous professors shared about their research with passion, it’s so impressive to be a participant in that room! Furthermore, I also enjoy commercial exhibition. I got new information about anti-pruritic drugs, commercial testing, diet and various products for atopy. In exhibition booths, all staffs were polite, calm, friendly and willing to provide a lot of information. In addition, they offered a lot of valuable products for testing in pet. In overview, I really love and enjoy this conference. If there is a chance, I would like to participate again. I really recommend ESVD conference, so don’t hesitate to register and join in the next year!!!

Hello again. It is time for feedback^
I would like, once again, to thank the ESVD board for a travel grant. I appreciate this support very much, since without it, my participation on Annual ESVD congress, regarding on economical situation in Slovakia, would difficult be possible.
To attend congresses is ,for me, an unique possibility to learn the newest infos about "old" problems, to go to "a depth" of causes, pathomechanisms and clinical signs of derm diseases, as well as to be informed about coming therapeuticals for diseases, frustrating owners and veterinarians as well.
Always great organization, community spirit, heplful and friendly atmosphere in this congresses, are the best medium connecting people with the same liking - veterinary dermatology - who wants to rise and improving theyselves in this field.
With best regards.

Impressions from grant receivers 2016;
I'm really happy, that thanks to travel grant ESVD I had an opportunity to be on the World Congress of Veterinary Dermatology in Bordeaux.
The programme of congress was outstanding!
Such a pity, that visiting all the lectures was impossible, that's why printed and electronic materials of the participants deserve special thanks to organizers. Up-to date knowledge which I received will allow to treat my patients more successfully. Meetings with the collegues who are as in love in veterinary dermatology as I, and with the best famous dermatologists the world inspired me to go forward in my studying this subject.
Bordo enchanted me by its beauty and hospitality, conquered French cuisine and became a zesty of the Congress.
WSVD-8 was a grand event , which will remain forever a bright page of my life. A lot of thanks again to ESVD.
I would like to thank very much ESVD for providing me with the grant, i would never be able to attend without that! I had really great time in Brodeaux, despite bad weather. Congress was great, I got many new informations about my beloved cat patients. I liked the new info about resistency of microorganisms, that MIC is not enought and microbiology labs can do better work for practitioners. I liked the lectures about nutrition and probiotics, it is good to know that there is science behing the informations I am telling my clients. One of the most important part of congress is networking, getting new friends and I got few really nice friends. That all would not be possible without ESVD support.
First of all I want to give thanks to ESVD that gave me a chance to participate in those wonderfull meeting like 8 World Congress of Veterinary Dermatology. It was a miracle for me to win this Grant. Thank you so much again for this great honor. The conference was excellent great meeting of all old and new friends, there were many intresting topics and brilliant speakers that talked about scientific discovery. And you realize how big honor it is - to be a part of this veterinary dermatology world be! I met and had a chance to talk with so many inspired veterinary doctors that give me a new vision of my everyday work! Now I have a huge luggage of new knowledge that help me to do my work in best way!
