We invite practitioners, academicians, and researchers interested in large animal, small animal, and exotic species, to submit abstracts of novel studies in practical and scientific topics related to veterinary orthopedics and traumatology. Preference will be given to abstracts that have clinical relevance. Papers addressing results of controlled retrospective and prospective clinical studies are strongly encouraged. Clinician investigators should also consider submitting innovative surgical techniques, or case reports describing unusual or difficult cases as these will be reviewed separate from the scientific abstracts. Presentations will be limited to 10 minutes
and followed by 5 minutes of discussion. Posters must fit within the 4' (height) x 4' (width) area provided.
Call for papers will open on Saturday, June 1, 2019 and close on Tuesday, October 15, 2019 for both podium presentations and posters. See the link on the VOS website: www.vosdvm.org
for full details of abstract submission, formatting and regulations.
Submission categories are:
- Clinical/Scientific Studies

a maximum of three novel or interesting cases
