She is a tutor in the PlatinumCPD Feline Medicine distance education course and has provided a number of talks and webinars on both feline and canine small animal medicine topics. When it comes to feline medicine, this is what Dr Liz has to say: “In my time as a vet in both general practice then specialist practice, I’ve seen too many cats treated as small dogs. But they are a mystery unto themselves and that’s one of the things I love about them! When you don’t love cats, you don’t get good results. This is why having a passion for feline medicine is so important.
