Word from the Chairman
The European Emesis Council was established in 2006 as a forum for key opinion leaders in
Europe to discuss key issues in the management of vomiting and other gastrointestinal problems
in companion animals. Over this period the Council has not only shared knowledge between
themselves, but has been very effective in producing both scholarly works and practical
management guidance for veterinary colleagues. In addition, the Council has supported clinical
research through the awarding of research grants and prizes for leading publications in the field.
I would like to thank and acknowledge my colleagues on the Council for their continued
enthusiasm and hard work, and I look forward to our future collaborations in the expectation
that we will continue to encourage exploration of new horizons that will enhance the welfare of
animals in our care.
