Registered Veterinary Technicians 

2019 Feline Symposium

  • Saturday, April 27, 2019
  • Gladys Valley Hall UC Davis

The Center for Continuing Professional Education is excited to offer this symposium dedicated
solely to the optimal care of kittens and cats. This day-long session will feature local and national
experts who will provide veterinarians, foster caretakers, and cat owners with valuable information
related to kitten care and socialization. We’ll also present some of the latest studies and clinical trials
at UC Davis related to the health and behavior of orphaned kittens. 

We are thrilled to have Ms. Hannah Shaw speak at this event. Ms. Shaw is an award-winning humane educator, kitten rescuer, and unwavering animal advocate who has dedicated her life to finding
innovative ways to protect cats. Her project, Kitten Lady, strives to create global change in the way we perceive and treat the tiniest and most vulnerable felines: orphan kittens.

Also joining us is Ellen Carozza, LVT, to discuss Assessment and Treatment of Fading Kittens. Ms. Carozza has over 20 years of experience as a licensed veterinary technician and has a
particular passion for pediatrics. In 2015, she was selected as the Virginia Veterinary Technician
of the year. She has previously presented on cat handling and neonatal kitten care at
the AAFP and VALVT conferences.

· New Kitten 101: Setting Up for Success -- Ariel Stephens, Director of Behavior Programs at SF SPCA
