Description The Labvet Europe programme aims at qualifying designated laboratory animal veterinarians to the level demanded by the 2010 EU directive on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes and the subsequent guidance paper. It is to be seen as continuation of the competencies gained from following the previous FELASA category D programmes, but it is solely dedicated to those thousands of vets who work world-wide as designated laboratory animal veterinarians.
