Caring for your beloved cat

Colorado State University's Student Chapter of the American Association of Feline Practitioners is hosting an annual cat care conference on Saturday, March 7 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital at 300 W. Drake Road

The day-long conference hosts four 50-minute lectures designed to help cat owners with questions about food and nutrition, behavior issues, environmental enrichment, dermatology disorders or illnesses, and end of life concerns and grieving. 

Panel of experts

Two question-and-answer panels will be held throughout the day to give participants an extensive opportunity to talk with the experts providing the lectures. Lectures will be held in the Junior Lecture Hall at the James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital, 300 W. Drake Road.

The conference is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Breakfast will be provided at 8:30 a.m. for participants, and lunch also will be provided during a break in sessions. The day will conclude with an optional tour of the Veterinary Medical Center at 3 p.m.
