In July 2018 Ascendis Health (formerly CiplaVet Animal Health), in association with the SA Veterinary Foundation, handed over 30 copies of the BSAVA Small Animal Formulary to 30 new final year clinic students by means of a lucky draw.

SAVF donates books

It is hoped that each book will benefit a group of students on each relevant clinic rotation and that the 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. The Foundation is particularly grateful that Ascendis Health has again supported the student community this year to sponsor the books.
