Saturday is the ISFM Feline Nursing Day and six expert speakers will cover topics ranging from neurological examinations to hyperthyroidism and diabetes.
On Sunday, International Cat Care introduces its new initiative Cat Friendly Solutions for Unowned Cats. Vicky Halls, Ian McFarlaine and Lauren Finka will be joined by other cat welfare specialists to talk about cat lifestyles, how to optimise homing opportunities, pragmatic medicine and much much more.
