The day is open to members of International Cat Care and interested members of the public, including veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses, cat breeders, cattery proprietors, those involved in cat rescue and cat owners. The day will count towards CPD requirements for veterinary surgeons and nurses.

We will be covering a wide range of topics focusing on ‘Feline geriatrics and stress in feline medicine’ to include amongst others chronic kidney disease, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, hyperthyroidism, stress in feline medicine and cat friendly practices. As usual, we are very fortunate to have speaking for us a selection of some of the finest feline experts in the country. The variety of this year’s programme has already attracted a great deal of interest and you can book a place now, via the International Cat Care website.

Registration for members of the ICC is £40.00 or £50.00 for non-members, inclusive of tea, coffee and lunch.

If you’re interested in becoming a member you can sign up for membership on the application form and take advantage of the members rate!
