Overview

Oncology has become one of the fastest growing fields in small animal practice, as clients and veterinarians are becoming increasingly open-minded about treating pets with cancer. The adage „cats are not small dogs“ holds true especially in oncology. Etiology, incidence, clinical symptoms, tumour biology, treatment and prognosis of feline cancer often differ significantly from that of dogs.
Unfortunately for feline practitioners, most small animal seminars are heavily biased towards canine medicine with cats not getting their fair share.

“Feline Oncology” is specifically designed to provide feline practitioners with the “A to Z” of cancer in cats. It will start with the diagnostic approach to the feline cancer patient, including biopsy taking, staging procedures, diagnostic imaging options as well as practical cytology sessions. There will be a detailed discussion of the most common feline tumours in clinical practice. A major emphasis will be on interactive and case oriented work using a systematic approach to the feline cancer patient including recognizing symptoms, interpreting imaging findings and choosing staging tests. Further, there will be a comprehensive discussion of cancer treatment options and on formulating suitable therapeutic plans.

This course is ideal for veterinarians with little or no previous knowledge in veterinary oncology, but also highly suitable for feline practitioners, who want to deepen their understanding of feline oncology and get up-to-date with the current state of clinical research.
