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.
