Osteoarthritis is one of the most common age-related diseases we see in the older cat, and has a huge impact on the cats welfare, and veterinary nurses play a big part in monitoring and managing these cases. In this session, we will discuss:


·       The use of questionnaires

·       The nurses role in diagnosing, treating and managing osteoarthritis

·       The multi-modal approach
More details to come!

Parasiticides are the first line of treatment and prevention of ectoparasitic infections and are among the most commonly prescribed medications in small animal practice. Many ectoparasiticide products are available, with an excellent record of safety and efficacy, significantly improving the quality of life of companion pets. In recent years, there have been recent concerns about the environmental impact of (and development of resistance to) these drugs. The future of ectoparasite control hinges on the responsible use of ectoparasiticides. In this session, I will discuss ways to improve knowledge, awareness, attitudes, and behaviours regarding the judicious usage of parasiticide.
