EVSO® wants to develop a process of reflection, analysis and practice of osteopathy and veterinary manual medicine, presented here as Veterinary Osteopathic Medicine (VVO).
EVSO® offers a repository in this area.
EVSO® is an active association that wants to offer:
- To its members:
Continuing education opportunities at university level in collaboration with European Universities.
On the occasion of its Annual General Meeting, EVSO® organizes every two years a two-day congress and alternatively one year out of two a congress / day of continuous training of a single day. These congresses have mostly places in universities.
In 2015 the congress was hosted by the Free University of Berlin; in 2016 the University of Liège; in 2017 the veterinary school of Lyon VetAgro Sup and in 2018 it will be the University of Zurich.
EVSO® also offers its members a website which gathers all the information concerning the members as well as, in a part which is reserved for them, all information concerning the continuous training, the research and the scientific literature in connection with the MVO.
EVSO® wants to set up a communication and advertising policy for its members at national and European level.
- To allopathic veterinarians, not trained in the MVO:
a fraternal collaboration as well as the possibility of discovering the MVO.
Every year (see above), EVSO® organizes a half-day introduction to Osteopathic Veterinary Medicine in "pre-congress". Allopathic veterinarians interested in the subject, students and collaborators of the Universities are invited.
Such half-days will also be scheduled in other European Universities annually.
EVSO® also offers referent veterinarians a precise listing of EVSO-C certified members to facilitate collaboration in cases requiring pediatric osteopathic care.
- To pet owners:
the possibility to present their animals, big and small, for consultations in Veterinary Osteopathic Medicine to competent veterinarians.
We remind you that only veterinarians have all the necessary skills to establish a precise osteopathic medical diagnosis and a differential diagnosis.
Veterinarians certified EVSO-C meet a quality label recognized by EVSO®. A precise listing of our members can be found on our website.
Our website is also a place of exchange and information.
