We organize two-day conferences: “Small Animal Cardiology” on September, 17-18, 2016 and “Small Animal Nephrology, Urology and Fluid Therapy” on October, 22-23, 2016 in Warsaw, Poland. We invited four great speakers – Mark D. Kittleson and Joshua A. Stern from University of California, Davis and Dennis J. Chew and Stephen P. DiBartola from The Ohio State University. All lectures are going to be in English. I would be grateful if you would distribute this information to all potentially interested local veterinarians and students.
