Dechra is demonstrating its investment in educational initiatives to enhance best practice during consultations by hosting two informative hour-long sessions at the Virtual Veterinary Conference 2024, which is free of charge and takes place from Monday 5 to Friday 9 February 2024.

The webinars will be hosted by leading experts in their fields, Sam Taylor, head of veterinary specialists at ISFM (International Society of Feline Medicine), and Libby Koytzoumis, veterinary technical advisor at Dechra whose key area of focus is endocrinology.

Taking place on Tuesday 6 February from 12.30pm to 1.30pm, Sam Taylor’s session is on Whetting the appetite: purr-fectly feeding your knowledge of feline inappetence and why early detection shouldn’t be overlooked’.  It will explore the importance of feline inappetence, how this often goes overlooked by owners and practices alike and why it shouldn’t be underestimated.

Libby Koytzoumis’ session takes place from 12.30pm to 1.30pm on Friday 9 February and focuses on one of the most commonly diagnosed endocrine diseases in dogs, Cushing’s syndrome.  The ‘Are you seeing these usual suspects in practice?’ webinar will explore the common signs, routes to diagnosis and the effective treatment and monitoring of Cushing’s.

Sarah Musgrave, brand manager at Dechra, manufacturer of Mirataz and Vetoryl, comments: “Both Cushing’s in dogs and inappetence in cats should be seen as priorities for veterinary teams throughout the UK, so we are delighted to be sponsoring the sessions at the Virtual Veterinary Conference 2024 to help bring vets up to date on these important areas of veterinary medicine and enhance best practice during consultations.”
