Dechra, manufacturer of Mirataz, is hosting a feline inappetence breakfast meeting at the ISFM Feline Congress at The Clayton Hotel in Dublin (Thursday 29 June to Sunday 2 July) to update vets on the practical management of inappetence in cats.

The one hour ‘Wake up to inappetence: practical solutions for the cat that won’t eat both in the clinic and at home’ breakfast meeting is being presented by Sam Taylor, feline specialist advisor at ISFM, and takes place from 7.15am to 8.15am on Saturday 1 July as part of the clinical practice stream in meeting room 1.

Featuring a fresh look at inappetence and focusing on practical management for both in- and out- patients, the session, which will be accompanied by pastries courtesy of Dechra, will cover when to use appetite stimulants and place a feeding tube and how to support caregivers. It will include hints and tips to use in practice and will be followed by an interactive Q&A session at the end of the meeting.

“Inappetence in cats is extremely common and has many underlying causes.  Appetite stimulants, such as Mirataz, can play a significant role in supporting cats with unintended weight loss while further investigations are underway.  Our breakfast meeting at ISFM Feline Congress will cover the practical management of inappetence in cats and provide delegates with hints and tips to take back to the clinic,” comments Sarah Musgrave, brand manager for Mirataz at Dechra.
