The Jeanne Marchig International Centre for Animal Welfare Education

Bangalore Conference

The short video features staff from the Roslin Institute and Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies who travelled to Bangalore in March 2014.

Bangalore Conference

The Indian city played host to an international animal conference, organised jointly by Edinburgh, the Commonwealth Veterinary Association and partners across from India. This film shows how Edinburgh is working closely with colleagues in India and examines how animal husbandry and welfare standards can be improved by sharing knowledge.

Sharing expertise

The five-day event in Bangalore looked at ways to improve the quality of life for both livestock and pets, as well as diseases threatening India’s wildlife.

Topics for discussion included new techniques to address infectious diseases in herd animals; finding new ways to tackle India’s growing problem of rabid dogs; and examining treatments for other zoonotic diseases - those affecting both humans and animals.
