Senior Cat Nutrition (1 hour)

There are many commercial diets intended for older cats, but what makes them different? This session will discuss senior cats’ energy and nutrient requirements and see how those compare to actual products. Recent findings on the effects of diet in cats with early CKD will also be presented.

Nutritional Management of Multiple Disorders in Cats (1 hour)

It can be tricky to figure out the best diet or feeding plan when a cat is diagnosed with more than one nutritionally-responsive condition. In this session, participants will cover common comorbidities such as diabetes + chronic kidney disease, obesity + food allergy, urinary crystals or stones + chronic enteropathy, etc. Case studies and tips on prioritizing and selecting a diet will be offered.

Nutritional Support of the Diabetic Cat (1 hour)

Cats with diabetes mellitus are not all alike and they may not respond consistently to “standard” diets or insulin protocols. This presentation will review studies on the effects of diet with or without insulin and include suggestions for how to tailor approaches to individual cats.

Navigating the Human Side of Veterinary Medicine Through the Lens of a Behaviorist (4 hours)

Creating and implementing a successful treatment plan for any condition, behavior or otherwise, relies on the creation and development of a working partnership between the clinician and the client. This relationship depends on several factors including reliable observation skills from both individuals, open communication between the clinician and the client, and a client skill set that allows them to implement the recommendations consistently and correctly. These and many other factors such as compliance, consistency, anthropomorphism, and communication obstacles will be covered within the presentations. These topics will be covered through the lens of detailed behavior cases in which these specific factors directly impacted the progression and/or success of the case, which will provide an opportunity for us to discuss specific treatment strategies as well as why individual therapies were recommended for individual cases and clients.
