    Two giants of feline medicine and infectious disease headline at the International Society of Feline Medicine’s 2019 European Feline Congress in one of the most beautiful congress settings ever! Richard Malik from the Centre for Veterinary Education at the University of Sydney and Mike Lappin from Colorado State University, known for their amusing and questioning presentations, are also joined by experts in their own fields, Jayne Sykes, Séverine Tasker, Donato Traversa and Francesca Mancianti for a spectacular indulgence in all things infectious and feline! From heartworm to leishmaniasis, toxocara, aspergillus, bartonella, coronavirus, erlichia, anaplasma, rickettsia, lungworm, mycobacteria, FeLV, FIV, haemoplasmas, cryptococcosis, GI disease, and things you may not even have heard of yet (weird and wonderful – emerging feline pathogens), find out the latest on diagnosis, treatment, prevention and approach.

    Add to this mini-symposia organised by the congress sponsors – Idexx, Hill’s, Ceva, Bayer and Boehringer Ingelheim – and delivered by additional world-class speakers, and you have five days bursting with 25 hours of outstanding feline CPD. And, if you need more in depth knowledge of feline infectious diseases, there are three masterclasses planned too.

    And, while it may be dark and focused in the lecture theatre, step outside and you find yourself in the most beautiful bay surrounded by the sea in shades of blue to swell even the most exhausted mind and soul! After 10 years, the ISFM European Feline Congress is returning to the Croatian town of Cavtat, situated just 20 km from Dubrovnik and one of ISFM’s most popular destinations. Set on a small wooded peninsula embraced by two harbours, Cavtat has a pretty waterfront peppered with restaurants, pebbly beaches and an interesting assortment of artsy attractions, making it one of the most desirable tourist destinations in the region. Making the most of the setting, the welcome party will be held at the congress hotel’s beautiful waterfront restaurant on Thursday evening. Delegates also have Saturday afternoon off to explore the area and soak up the stunning scenery and laid back atmosphere.

    In addition, Cavtat is perfectly located for quick and easy travel, being just 5 km from the airport, and is also a great base from which to explore Dubrovnik and the surrounding area.

    The congress is taking place form 26–30 June, with online bookings via
