Flashback:

Request Dr. Karsten Hesse at the GA on 09.19.2015

1) Charge 50,- Euro per year from every member country extra, managed as special fund, to support the organizer of an european- or world- championship, for veterinary costs.
2) In the case of a deficiency in veterinary care, WSA rises 500,- Euro from the responsible organizer.

Substantiation:
During my time as official WSA Vet/DCO I realized three championships with good veterinary care (proper pre race vet controls, good duty (minimum 2 Vets) during the races, good veterinary facilities on the race ground, 24 h accessibility. In my opinion this should be the normality. Unfortunately I made 2 experiences with absolute inadequate veterinary care (no Vet on the ground, underequiped staff, no experience with sled dogs, non availability. In my opinion this is the result of false economy and this is at least at the expense of our dogs and the reputation of the sled dog sport . In this way the community of WSA is able to offer the organizer of the event round about 1200,- Euro extra for veterinary controls.
