Dr Susan Little was presented with the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM)/Hill's Pet Nutrition Award for outstanding contributions to feline medicine at the ISFM’s World Feline Veterinary Congress (WFVC) in Barcelona on June 29. The Award came as a lovely birthday surprise for Dr Little when it was presented to her just as she was about to give her final lecture at the event.

Under the theme of paediatrics and geriatrics, she gave seven lively and engaging lectures and led a masterclass on neonatology and paediatrics.
