Thanks to better diets and health care, more and more cats are now living to/beyond a geriatric age (15 years). Cats are very good at adapting to and compensating for illness, which can make it hard for carers to spot signs of disease. Many common geriatric illnesses can be managed with benefits to both quality and length of life. Management of concurrent disease can make clinical care challenging however. The speaker will include as many practical tips as possible through the day with a key aim being to increase participants’ clinical skills and confidence when dealing with elderly cats.

**Every delegate will also be provided with a free copy of the lecturer’s latest book ‘Caring for an Elderly Cat’**

Topics to be covered include:

  • Preventative healthcare for the older cat – what, why and when?
  • Cat friendly tips for handling, sedating and sampling older cats
  • Management of concurrent disease – what’s the best approach?
  • A clinical update on ‘what’s new’ for diagnosis and management of common old cat illnesses such as:
    • Osteoarthritis
    • CKD
    • Hyperthryoidism
    • Cognitive dysfunction
    • Constipation
