FAB Annual Conference

Strokes, seizures and unusual behavioural disorders will be featured at this year’s Feline Advisory Bureau (FAB) Annual Conference to be held at the Apollo Hotel, Basingstoke, on Saturday October 28.

FAB has brought together well-known speakers from two veterinary schools and two referral practices to share their knowledge in subject areas that tend to be covered only briefly in textbooks. The FAB Conference is sponsored by Royal Canin.

FAB Lecturer and Senior Clinical Scholar from Edinburgh University, Kerry Simpson and Nicki Reed, will discuss heart disease in the older cat and seizuring cats. Andrea Harvey will look at how the skin provides clues to systemic diseases. This will also be illustrated when Bristol FAB Resident Angie Hibbert discusses a case of Cushing’s syndrome -‘Sophie’s skin’.

Sarah Heath of Behavioural Referrals Veterinary Practice, Chester, will explain the causes behind some unusual feline behaviour. She will also join forces with Clare Rusbridge, veterinary neurologist at the Stone Lion Veterinary Centre, Wimbledon, to discuss orofacial pain syndrome and other strange behaviour disorders with a neurological cause. The causes, treatment and prognosis of strokes will also be discussed separately in a lecture by Clare Rusbridge.

Registration costs £40.00 for FAB members, £50.00 for non-members and includes lunch, tea and coffee.

The meeting is open to all members of FAB and interested members of the public, including veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses, cat breeders, cattery proprietors, those involved in cat rescue and cat owners.
