2024 Feline Health Symposium-“Health Breakthroughs for EveryCat: Being PURRfectly Clear on Feline Pain”

EveryCat Health Foundation & the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine Feline Health Center are excited to partner together on a symposium, “Health Breakthroughs for EveryCat: Being PURRfectly Clear on Feline Pain,” on April 13th and 14th, 2024 at North Carolina State University, Raleigh, North Carolina.

The EveryCat Health Foundation Symposia series, in 2019 at the University of California Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and in 2022 at University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, has been instrumental in forwarding cat health education and EveryCat Health Foundation is excited to partner with the newly established Feline Health Center at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine for the 2024 Symposium.

This year’s theme, feline pain, is particularly meaningful to veterinary professionals as well as cat parents, and we’re holding this event at the institution where many of the top researchers on this topic call home.

This symposium will feature two separate tracks, one for veterinary professionals looking for continuing education credits, and one for non-veterinary cat people. Both tracks will focus on feline pain with topics such as pain with cancer, dentistry, urinary, and gastrointestinal tracts. AAVSB RACE approved CE credits will be available for veterinarians and veterinary technicians. The symposium will also offer a live stream option for those unable to attend in-person. Both tracks will be recorded and made available to all attendees at the conclusion of the symposium.

Some of the scheduled speakers include:
Duncan Lascelles, BSc, BVSc, PhD, FRCVS, CertVA, DSAS(ST), DECVS, DACVS,
Margaret Gruen, DVM, MVPH, PhD, DACVB,
Timothy Fan, DVM, PhD, DACVIM (SAIM), DACVIM (oncology),
Alex Lynch, BVSc(Hons), DACVECC, MRCVS,
