ISFM Academy of Feline Practitioners
The ISFM Academy is a community of veterinarians with further qualifications in feline practice or medicine, or specialist qualifications in disciplines complimentary to the aims of ISFM (e.g. cardiology, surgery). The ISFM Academy is a vibrant community of motivated vets who are dedicated to improving veterinary care for cats by sharing of information and promotion of initiatives. This forward-thinking worldwide group of vets advance developments in feline practice and welfare.
Sam Taylor is our Feline Medicine Specialist and ISFM Academy Lead. She advises the charity on all aspects of feline medicine and is a practising vet. We sat down with Sam to learn more about the Academy, who can join, why it’s important, and how it will operate. You can read her answers here.
iCatCare Feline Wellbeing Panel
The iCatCare Feline Wellbeing Panel is a vibrant community of motivated cat professionals from different backgrounds and locations across the globe. The expertise of our panel members covers both unowned cats (spanning free-roaming individuals and those residing in homing centres) and owned pet cats with a professional background ranging from academic and professional qualifications to extensive practical experience.
All panel members have an in-depth understanding of behavioural aspects of the domestic cat and are dedicated to helping International Cat Care to improve the mental wellbeing of all cats, owned and unowned, by sharing of information and promotion of initiatives.
Dr Sarah Ellis is the chair of the iCatCare Feline Wellbeing Panel, as well as the Head of Cat Advocacy and feline behaviour expert at iCatCare.
