Why should you register for ISFM’s 2019 Asia-Pacific Feline Congress?
There are many reasons… But, we’ve narrowed it down to five main ones:
1) Advance your knowledge of feline medicine
The Congress offers a comprehensive scientific programme, covering a range of current and challenging aspects of feline cardiology and feline respiratory disease across two days. You will learn from keynote speakers American, European and RCVS Recognised Specialist in Veterinary Cardiology Kieran Borgeat and President of the International Society of Companion Animal Infectious Diseases Vanessa Barrs. Together they will be sharing the latest research and knowledge; providing practical advice on diagnosis, treatment and prevention.
For delegates wanting to gain an even greater level of understanding of feline cardiac disease, there is a masterclass scheduled with Kieran Borgeat which will be an interactive case-based discussion. Places are limited and with half already filled please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Industry-led talks, by IDEXX and Purina will also be hosted during the Congress, covering screening for cardiac disease in clinically healthy cats and a transformational approach to managing cat allergens.
2) Network, connect and reconnect
Meeting like-minded people is one of the most valuable parts of the Congress experience. You will have the opportunity to build connections with cat-loving colleagues from around the world, network with industry professionals and global pharmaceutical and nutritional companies and share ideas with and ask questions of world-class speakers. The free to attend evening reception also offers the perfect opportunity to socialise and unwind after a busy day of lectures.
