Tara Evans RVN from Vita Animal Health said: “We really value education, it’s at the centre of all that we do. Alongside producing functional products, we constantly strive to educate owners as well as supporting vets. These webinars are a fun and engaging way of offering CPD to vets and valuable information to owners on common conditions we see in cats.”

With a passion for internal medicine and supporting other vets, Dr Graham is renowned for her helpful tips and advice, which she shares across her online platforms. Following cardiac disease, her second webinar will shed light on how best to manage senior cats, stressing the importance of early detection of disease.

Two owner-facing webinars will give cat owners helpful information on problems that are prevalent for often go unnoticed by owners. Louisa will share practical suggestions on how to reduce feline stress as well as guidance on how to recognise symptoms of OA in cats and when to seek veterinary care.

Vets are being urged to share the owner-facing webinars with their clients as a teaching tool and information source.The series of webinars are available to watch online at
