AnimalhealthEurope hosted a drink to celebrate healthy animals on 20 September at the Brussels Press Club.
With the new EU regulations for veterinary medicines and medicated feed heading for final sign-off this autumn, it was a great opportunity to thank the institutions for driving through some important revisions to support animal health and to hear about the next steps from Arūnas Vinčiūnas, Head of Cabinet for Health and Food Safety Commissioner Andriukaitis.

Participants were impressed by our gallery of quotes featuring a wide range of people: from the Director General of the World Animal Health Organisation Monique Eloit and Commissioner Andriukaitis; to research scientists like Dr. Linda Dixon from The Pirbright Institute who is currently researching a vaccine to fight against African swine fever; to farmers rearing their animals to produce safe and sustainable food; to the vets who look after our animals; through to the people who rely on assistance animals for both companionship and support.
We were very pleased to have some of our campaign participants present coming from the Fondation I See and are very grateful for the good number of people happy to pose for a photo with our hashtag and share with us why they think #AnimalHealthMatters!
