Seven final year veterinary students are celebrating after completing a three-week feline elective course.
The University of Bristol students completed the course at Langford Veterinary Services’ Feline Centre, where they attended seminars with guest speakers and produced a report on a case they observed.
The students also visited a Cats Protection shelter to learn about shelter medicine.
International Cat Care (iCatCare) sponsored part of the Feline Elective Prize, with a year’s membership of its veterinary division, the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM).
The winner was Jorden Collins, who also received a copy of BSAVA Manual of Feline Practice: A Foundation Manual.
A runner-up prize of a Littman stethoscope, donated by Dechra, was awarded to Richard Sparrow.
All students received iCatCare goodie bags, which included a copy of ISFM’s guide Feline Stress and Health. The occasion was celebrated with feline-themed cakes and cookies baked by the students.
