ISFM Asia Pacific Congress – scientific programme

 

This year's congress is being held across two days and will cover a range of current and challenging aspects of feline cardiology and feline respiratory disease. We have two key speakers: Kieran Borgeat and Vanessa Barrs who will be joined by guest speakers from our main congress sponsors. The talks are split into easily digestible 30 & 45-minute sessions and are aimed at advanced practitioner level. 

There is also a Masterclass scheduled with Kieran Borgeat which will be an in depth look at feline cardiac disease. This will be an interactive case-based discussion and with places limited to only 40 people, you are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.
