CiplaVet and the SAVF donate books to final year veterinary student clinic groups


In July 2015 CiplaVet Animal Health, in association with the SA Veterinary Foundation, handed over 30 copies of the BSAVA Small Animal Formulary to 25% of final year clinic students. It is hoped that each book will benefit a group of students on each relevant clinic rotation Afterwards students were treated to a braai and drinks to interact with CiplaVet staff. It is hoped that these books will assist the students in their clinic year as well as making them more aware of the Foundation and its functions and mandate.

The books were bought from a book fund specially set up by the SAVF for the purpose to assist students in their academic life. This is in addition to the bursaries that the Foundation gives to students. The Foundation is grateful that CiplaVet joined forces with them to sponsor the books and braai to help our veterinary students. However, anybody can make a donation to the book fund by visiting the web site at and going to the Donations page. More information on CiplaVet can be obtained from their web site,
