At the Washington Marriott Wardman Park, near our Washington DC bed and breakfast, the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) Conference 2016 is being held from November 3rd-6th. The conference will be catered towards both experienced feline practitioners as well as those who are new to the profession. This is a great opportunity to network with other feline practitioners and to expand your knowledge in feline medicine. At the conference there will be a wide array of topics discussed by experts in the field. Veterinary healthcare professionals will be joining together to seek ways in which to improve the standard of care for cats. The AAFP strives to advance the field of feline medicine and surgery through the publication of practice guidelines, position statements, and by providing continuing education.
What can you expect at AAFP Conference 2016? Some of the topics that will be discussed include, “Systemic Mycotic in Cats”, “GEMS from ACVIM”, “Feline Indoor Elimination Issues: How to Investigate & Treat” and much more.
