“Our annual Tasmanian conference will feature Dr Sebastian Gordon who is the only specialist surgeon in the state. Cardiology specialist Dr Richard Woolley will talk about distinguishing between cardiac and respiratory diseases in cats and dogs.

“We also have animal behaviourist Dr Gabrielle Carter who will cover topics on stress free vet visits for pets and handling distressed animals.”

Other veterinarians will be delivering sessions on nutritional management of gastrointestinal diseases, caring for the cardiac patient and radiologic evaluation of the cardiovascular system.
