Edinburgh, London and Bristol veterinary schools have awarded prizes in their feline elective courses. The feline medicine elective, open to final year students who want to take a closer look at feline medicine, is composed of clinical work, library projects, visits to rescue shelters and breeders and talks from visiting speakers.
Students were assessed for their depth of knowledge and care shown to feline patients during the elective and the highest achiever is awarded a prize of joint membership of Feline Advisory Bureau (FAB) and European Society of Feline Medicine (ESFM).
The Bristol University Feline Elective winner was Nicola Beaney(above left), from Canterbury, Kent shown receiving her first copy of the monthly Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery from Andrea Harvey, FAB Lecturer.
The Edinburgh University winner was Laura Anderson (above right) from Kingennie, Angus shown being congratulated by Professor Danielle Gunn-Moore, member of the FAB feline expert panel.
The Royal Veterinary College winner was Esther Lavender (above) from Watford.
The Feline Advisory Bureau is a charity dedicated to promoting the health and welfare of cats through improved feline knowledge, to help us all care better for our cats.
