Edward Feldman, emeritus professor of small animal internal medicine at the University of California Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, will lecture on the diagnosis and treatment of canine Cushing’s syndrome in two sessions at the show on Friday 18 November.

The exclusive CPD lectures are only open to Improve International delegates.

Global reputation

Prof Feldman has authored more than 160 peer-reviewed scientific publications, 110 scientific abstracts and 75 book chapters He is co-editor of the Textbook of Veterinary Internal Medicine and co-author of Canine and Feline Endocrinology.

David Babington, managing director of Improve International, said: “Prof Feldman’s global reputation is second to none in internal medicine and Cushing’s syndrome is a common, but frequently challenging, condition for vets in general practice.

Different approach

“We are delighted and honoured Prof Feldman will give our delegates the benefit of his extensive experience and knowledge of Cushing’s syndrome by discussing the most appropriate tests to use, the discrimination of dogs with pituitary-dependent Cushing’s from dogs with adrenal-dependent Cushing’s and, of course, the treatment of this condition.

“His approach is a little different to that usually adopted by UK practitioners. We are confident delegates will find his logic and evidence-based approach stimulating, and may then wish to adopt it in practice.”
