PANEL DISCUSSION DESCRIPTION
Feline uveitis is commonly encountered in practice and so frequently can be a canary bird for systemic disease. Whilst it may be confined to the globe only, for example in traumatic uveitis, uveitis may be secondary to an infectious, inflammatory or neoplastic focus elsewhere in the body. We have world class speakers for this discussion panel, with expertise in ophthalmology, feline internal medicine, feline oncology and feline infectious diseases.
We will be discussing the clinical signs of feline uveitis, the hurdles for diagnosing cause, and pearls of wisdom for treatment. This evidence-based discussion session will be aimed at the level of an experienced general practitioner, although those with a more advanced interest in ophthalmology will also find it useful.

American & European Specialist in Veterinary Ophthalmology
I have been practicing Veterinary Ophthalmology for over 2 decades. Being a graduate from the Veterinary School at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich, Germany, I received further specialty training in Veterinary Ophthalmology during externships at the Animal Eye Clinic in La Habra, California and the Animal Health Trust in the U.K. I completed my residency program in Veterinary Ophthalmology at the University of Zurich, Switzerland and am one of few individuals board certified in both the American and European College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists. For the past 20 years I have been working in academic institutions and specialty referral centers in Switzerland, the U.S. and the U.K. and until most recently Senior Lecturer at the Royal Veterinary College.
Cats have always been a personal and professional favorite of mine, based on the uniqueness of the feline eyes and ocular conditions, their fascinating behavior and the special bond they develop with their owners. Offering a cat-only ophthalmology service in The London Cat Clinic is a very unique opportunity. It will pair in-depth client education and high-quality veterinary specialty care in a cat-friendly environment making this a very special veterinary experience for the cat owner.
I lives in Reigate, Surrey with my partner Jonathan and my cat “Nero”. I enjoy our allotment and flower gardening, gardening design, cooking and bread baking.Full details
