What are the WVS ITC courses and who can apply?

The objective of WVS India International Training Center (WVS ITC) is to provide veterinary skills development, inspiration and advice for veterinarians and veterinary assistants especially in the field of humane dog population control and rabies control.

The ITC surgery courses provide the participants with skills and confidence in good quality surgery and related clinical skills and increased understanding in veterinarian’s role in public health matters like rabies control and responsible use of antibiotics. It also challenges veterinarians to think how they can be actively promoting animal welfare in their daily work.

The courses are meant for veterinarians and last year veterinary students, who are actively working in the clinical field and who are likely to be able to spay/neuter dogs after the course.

Couple of times a year, we have also been able to provide ‘ITC-specials’. These are shorter courses run by certified international veterinary specialists of different fields.

We provide vocational training in the veterinary assistant and animal handler work parallel to the ABC surgery courses for non-veterinary people interested in working in ABC projects. We also welcome ABC project managers to attend the course to learn and see in practice the important elements of good ABC-surgery project.

We’re very excited to be launching our new stud service this year. Working in partnership with St Giles Stud, we have an exceptional facility complete with stocks, easy access and 24 hour care with livery if required. Our experienced team, lead by Jade who has worked several stud seasons with the world leading Scone Vet Hospital in Australia, can prepare your mare for natural service or A.I. using fresh, chilled or frozen semen. Our fixed packages offer unbeatable value, as listed under our equine services page, but we can offer a friendly, dedicated service to suit your needs and just give us a call to discuss.
