EXTENDING HEALTHY LIFE in your Feline Patients

Provided by

About the course

We’ve likely all witnessed the challenges of getting cats to the vets, which become greater as your feline patients age.  So EVERY moment an older cat spends in your practice needs to be savoured.  Let’s take full advantage of the rare opportunities we have to extend their healthy life.

In this webinar, Nathalie will walk us through:

  • The essentials (‘must haves’ and ‘nice to have’) in senior cat consultations
  • Recognising both the major ‘alarm bells ’ of age related disease you’ll encounter and more subtle signs of general ageing, as well as ‘next steps’ for you to take to determine the clinical significance of your findings
  • Initial findings from her longitudinal research, mapping the ageing process

You’ll have an opportunity to ask Nathalie questions to help refine your approach to cats over 7.
