Dear Colleagues,

We, as Ondokuz Mayıs University Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Department of Surgery, are experiencing the rightful pride and excitement to organise the XVII. National and III. International Veterinary Surgery Congress.
As is known, Turkey's first and rooted veterinary congress, Veterinary Surgery Congress will be held on 10-13 September 2020 in SAMSUN this time.

First of all, we would like to state that; the sweet excitement that we live due to organizing the congress is elevating due to hosting you participants in SAMSUN, the province where GREAT LEADER MUSTAFA KEMAL ATATÜRK burned the torch of war of independence.
The Veterinary Surgery Congress, which is held every two years, is getting more and more attention with its academic and scientific content, as well as the practical topics for freelance clinicians. In addition, due to its international identity, we believe that our congress, which will include foreign speakers who are experts in different fields, will be beneficial for all stakeholders of our profession.

In addition to the scientific program where oral and poster presentations will be held with the emphasis on pet, farm animals and horse surgery, social activities including Samsun and the surrounding provinces will also take place.

We would like to say that we are working with all our efforts as the congress organizing committee so that you can have a perfect time in academic, scientific and social terms. Our effort will be crowned by the high participation to our congress. For this reason, all our colleagues are invited to XVII. National III. International Veterinary Surgery Congress which will be held on September 10-13, 2020 in Samsun.

On Behalf of the Congress Organizing Committee,
Congress President
Prof.Dr. Ahmet ÖZAK
