21st Annual Fred Scott Feline Symposium

July 24-26, 2009

Continuing in the tradition of providing the most up-to-date information on feline health issues, this year's 21st Annual Fred Scott Feline Symposium draws on the knowledge of recognized experts in feline medicine. Speakers from Colorado State University and the University of Queensland, Australia, plus several faculty members from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University, will give participants in-depth learning opportunities in feline medicine. Topics include gastrointestinal diseases, modern diagnostic medicine, feline diabetes, feline obesity, feline vaccine controversies, infectious diseases, feline nutrition, feline kidney diseases, and feline anesthesiology.

The symposium will be held in the Veterinary Education Center on Cornell University's Ithaca campus and is presented by the Cornell Feline Health Center, Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, and our corporate sponsors. This program was reviewed and approved by the AAVSB RACE program for 17 hours of CE for veterinarians and technicians in those jurisdictions which acknowledge RACE approval . Please contact the AAVSB RACE program at race@aavsb.org should you have any comments / concerns regarding this program's validity or relevancy to the veterinary profession.

This year's symposium will include the first James R. Richards Memorial Feline Lecture. These lectures have been established to honor the outstanding contributions the late Dr. Richards made to the field of feline medicine to improve the health and well-being of cats everywhere.

The Finger Lakes region of upstate New York is beautiful in the summertime. We look forward to seeing you at the Feline Symposium, the annual Friday evening picnic, and the Saturday evening dinner cruise on Cayuga Lake.
