The International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM) is bringing its world-renowned Congress series to the city of living culture in 2023. Themed ‘Between a Urolith and a Hard Place: Acute upper urinary tract disease and beyond…’, the 2023 ISFM Congress Dublin will provide veterinary professionals with ‘access all areas’ on these increasingly common, but often complicated, feline cases.

Taking place from 29th June to 2nd July 2023, the Dublin Congress features an all-star line-up of international veterinary experts, including Søren Boysen (Emergency & Critical Care), Serge Chalhoub (Internal Medicine), Laura Owen (Soft Tissue Surgery) and special guest Allyson Berent (Non-Invasive Surgery). From internal medicine and imaging to surgery and beyond, veterinary professionals will have access to an extensive scientific programme designed to support a multi-modal and cat friendly approach to caring for their feline patients with acute upper urinary tract disease and other emergencies.

Dr Sam Taylor, ISFM Veterinary Specialist Lead said:

‘We seem to be seeing more and more feline urinary cases, urolithiasis and acute kidney injury – and of course the familiar blocked cats! In Dublin, I can’t wait to hear how to approach these cases as well as look more in-depth at ECC and discuss cat friendly critical care amongst many other topics from all angles – surgery, medicine, behaviour, imaging and more!’

Featuring engaging learning content, including a mixture of traditional lectures, joint lectures, interactive panel discussions and in-depth masterclasses, delegates will also have the option of tailoring their ISFM Congress experience for the first time – with two unique feline streams. One exploring the latest in cutting-edge science, and the other focused on tips and tricks to take home into practice. There will also be opportunities to ‘ask the expert’ in an open and supportive learning environment, and of course, the chance to socialise and network with like-minded colleagues in vibrant historic Dublin.

Open to veterinarians and veterinary nurses of all experience levels, the 2023 ISFM Feline Congress Dublin will ensure that, regardless of experience, delegates leave with up-to-date knowledge, practical tips and tricks, plus newfound confidence when caring for their next feline patient.
