Feline Medicine congress moved to London

The International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM) is to hold its planned Hong Kong congress in London this year, because of ongoing travel restrictions caused by the global pandemic.

Taking place on November 26, the event will focus on putting the Cat Friendly Principles into action within the veterinary clinic, including how to work with cats in challenging situations, the role of appropriate handling techniques and the use of anxiolytics and sedation.

Speakers include Dr Sarah Heath (Veterinary Specialist in Behavioural Medicine), Dr Matt Gurney (Veterinary Specialist in Anaesthesia and Analgesia), Linda Ryan (Veterinary Technician Specialist in Oncology and Behaviour) and Kelly Eyre (RVN).

Head of ISFM Dr Nathalie Dowgray said: “This has been a really exciting programme to put together.

“Some cats can be challenging in the veterinary clinic even when the team has made every effort to be cat friendly. We wanted to recognise that and include in our panel discussion real-life scenarios to equip vets and nurses with the tools they need for when things don’t go according to plan.”

The Feline Fine London congress is open to all veterinary professionals, including nurses and receptionists.
