Default Dick vet tortoise week (scotland)

The Exotic Animal and Wildlife Service of the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies is putting on an event at the Hospital for small Animals, Easter Bush Veterinary Centre, Roslin, Midlothian, EH25 9RG.

Is is on the 19th September, Wednesday. The venue is outside Edinburgh. It will start at 7 and end about 8.30.

There will be lectures and free advice and care sheets available.

Phone to book a place 0131 650 7650.

Although Kevin Eatwell isn't down as a speaker he is usually there at these events. He is highly regarded as a tortoise vet.

I have been to the Royal Dick evenings before and they are good events.

We used to send timber to some research thing at Roslin, it wasn't the vets though, I can't remember what it was or what they needed the timber for or what kind of timber it was but we got regular orders from them over the years

I will have to talk very nicely to my chauffeur and see if he will take me!

I would love to go though, particularly as it is so close!

This sounds excellent. I went to a talk by Jo Hedley from this vet school a couple of years ago. It was very good.

One of the speakers is Jo Hedley and the other one is Gidona Goodman.

I'm hoping to get there but the transport is a bit of an issue.

I thought you had a bike, it wouldn't take wiggins long to whizz along the M8
