Animal Healthcare and Veterinary Phytotherapy: Science and Practice

Thanks to the efforts of Professor Hermann Stuppner, the local organizer of the GA-Congress 2019, the GA-networking group on Medicinal Plants and Natural Products in Animal Healthcare and Veterinary Medicine was invited to organize again a one-day Pre-Congress Symposium. To bring together practitioners, scientists and industry in our field is the idea of our networking group and in particular of the symposium.  

Please find more information about the networking group here.

The symposium will cover following aspects:

  • animal self-medication
  • ethnoveterinary medicine
  • veterinary pharmacology of medicinal plants
  • science and practice of veterinary phytotherapy
  • clinical, in vivo and in vitro research with medicinal plants or natural products for animals
  • feed additives and animal health care products based on plants rich in phytochemicals

The scheduled program includes keynote lectures, invited short lectures, as well as contributed short lectures. The animal related contributions of the main congress will be presented as posters during the Pre-Congress Symposium. An international industrial exhibition with companies presenting herbal feed additives, veterinary drugs and phytogenic health care products for animals will be held. A broad professional, scientific and personal exchange will be possible during the breaks.
In addition to the Pre-Congress Symposium at least one plenary lecture of the main congress will focus on our topic:  Mike Huffman will give a broad overview about animal self-medication. We will also have a short lecture session and a poster session within the main congress. All these program items will take place Tuesday 3rd of September 2019. In the evening of this day we will have our networking group meeting.

The Pre-Congress Symposium can be booked alone or in addition to the main congress:
