Registration is now open for the ISFM 2021 World Feline Congress, taking place online from 25th to the 27th June.

The theme this year is 'The ever-complex cat: a multidisciplinary approach to feline medicine', around which there will be a full programme of talks and lectures, including more than 30 hours of CPD.

The main strands for each day are:

  • The pancreas: endocrine/exocrine and the impact of obesity
  • Gastrointestinal disease, therapeutics and clinical problem solving
  • Liver disease, future horizons of gastrointestinal research and renal disease

Keynote speaker Professor Kenneth Simpson, BVM&S, PhD, Chief of the Section of Small Animal Internal Medicine at Cornell University will deliver a series of talks on his specialisms, including gastrointestinal (GI) disease, pancreatitis and liver enzyme interpretation.

Joining him are more than twenty international feline experts who will be considering the cat from all angles, from imaging and clinical pathology to histology.

Nathalie Dowgray, Head of ISFM, said: "We are very excited about the line-up of speakers for this year’s congress, it is a fantastic opportunity for vets to understand the complexity of feline medicine and come away better able to manage difficult cases."

New for this year are live panel sessions in which delegates will be able to join the speakers in expert discussion on key feline topics, as well as opportunities to network and chat directly with leading names in the veterinary industry.

Delegates will also have access to all of the content for six months of on-demand learning after congress ends.

Registration is open now and available at a special early bird rate until March 31st. This year there are bursary places available for veterinary surgeons and students from low-income countries. More information about eligibility and how to apply can be found on the website.
