Below is just some of the feedback we've received:
Feline Interactive: online case and discussion based CPD for general practitioners
Informative presentations in a friendly and informative approach which is all useful for first opinion practice. Inspires me to do more.
Really useful course, great refresher of CKD/thyroid/OA in a very practical way and having not seen any FIP cases recently, really interesting, and all new (to me) info re recent developments in therapy, so really felt like I learnt loads. The links to the client handouts and professional guidelines for various things is so helpful as can store and find easily post course when I need it. Thanks both!
Delivered at a good level and the interactive element was really interesting.
It was a very good combination of refreshing the basics and discussing advanced, sharing experiences and practical tips.
Really enjoyed online. Still interactive, with the chat box function worked really well. But took the stress out of having to get to an in-person CPD, especially with childcare to consider.
Very successful. Whilst always great face to face and to chat reduces time and cost and risks.
Really great online, don’t think it took anything away from it.
I thought it worked very well especially as it was quite a small group so everyone could chat.
Worked as well as an “in person course” if not better as I could ask questions as we went along rather than at the end trying to remember things I wanted to ask.
For me this worked perfectly. I concentrate better at home.
Feline Interactive: live, online, case and discussion based CPD for general practitioners (May 2022)
I thought it was excellent - I really enjoyed how interactive it was. The speakers were flexible and welcomed input and there were some wonderful fellow attendees with really useful input. Sarah and Sam did an excellent job of responding to the chat questions as well as doing their presentations!
I found the case studies very interesting and helpful. I feel that I am more engaged with the topic and can apply knowledge to 'real life' cases in practice
It was very interesting with loads of new information that I was unaware of, but not too technical that I couldn't follow it. Really engaging and stimulating discussions
Lovely and relaxed, kept to good time
It worked really well for me. I don't feel anything was lost by it not being in person. It was much easier for logistics of childcare!
Worked better than I thought it would
I initially didn't like on-line events, but I find they make it much easier to be interactive as questions can be posed via message without interfering with host talking. You can interact real time rather than waiting until end of a talk to pose a question. Much less intimidating than a lecture
A lot of practical stuff that I can use in my first opinion - not too affluent practice so very useful. Good to have CPD that isn't all about doing a CT or many-many blood tests
Online very convenient - I have a young son and the fact that the course is online has allowed me to drop him off and pick up from school but I can still enjoy the excellent CPD
(The course) went well, the technology worked and we ran to time with plenty of time for questions and discussion - this part is often compromised and I think it is important
Strictly evidence-based, very scientific approach. Lots of space for discussions and upfront regarding approach in real clinical cases. Not only a theory course
Loved the online approach! Definitely should be the way forward for most CPD hopefully
I liked how it was interactive and can discus real cases. Very helpful and useful. So being online was as good as in person in that respect’
Compliance to medications: challenges and solutions
Successful management of feline idiopathic cystitis
Very nice and informative course to refresh knowledge
Chronic kidney disease - all a carer needs to know (pet owners' webinar)
Gold standard care of elderly cats
An excellent course for anyone interested in the health and wellbeing of elderly cats. Sadly some cat owners seem to accept that weight loss and polydipsia is the 'norm' in elderly cats. I wish this course was compulsory for cat owners.
Maintaining health in the older cat (pet owners' webinar)
This is a fantastic resource for owners with elderly cats, thanks so much.
Optimising diagnosis and management of feline hyperthyroidism (2016)
This is the third Vet Prof feline course I have done. I find them really interesting, not too technical and the information is really useful and user friendly. A great way of learning more about our feline friends and getting our CPD hours is a bonus.
This was a really helpful course I thought it may be above my understanding but I really enjoyed it, thanks.
Management of Anorexic Cats Online Lecture
Very well presented, not too technical but very informative and interesting.
It was a joy to listen to a lovely practical lecture & to receive practical help so quickly.
Interesting and useful information, just the right level for the general practitioner.
Excellent & practical.
Feline Kidney Disease Distance Learning Module
As a Veterinary Nurse, I found the information provided very useful, especially for encouraging clients to come to nurse clinics for more regular assessments and ensuring clients were aware of the necessity for these checks
Having the book and notes were excellent and much easier for me to learn from. It is great you offer both.
Thoroughly enjoyed it. Useful information provided in a way that is easy to understand
Very useful and practical course. Great notes and photos
Very informative course, easy to fit around hectic life
Excellent and very informative. Very enjoyable course.
I loved it and would like more courses on elder cats; no one gives them the attention the deserve!
Clear informative webinar - excellent written notes and support files, the book gave a very useful approach to helping owners understand the disease.
I find Sarah Caney's lectures to be very clear indeed and full of relevant information for first opinion practitioners.
Aimed at a very good level of understanding and easy to follow. As a nurse who has attended several CPD courses on feline CKD, I am pleased to say I learnt something new from the webinar! Thank you!

Congratulations for amazing lectures you made last 15th and 16th of November at London Vet Show. I really find them very useful
Elderly Cat CPD Course
February 2018, London
Thank you so much for the wonderful cpd course today, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Dr Sarah Caney was a superb speaker, so informative and I left with lots of ideas for our cat clinics and applying for our practice accreditation to be a cat friendly clinic. The new venue was ideal too, so conveniently located. 5 stars all round!
I really enjoyed it all, the location was great, we received great food and the topic was very interesting, an excellent course. 9/10
I thoroughly enjoyed the course, lots of practical tips to help with setting up geriatric cat clinics and obtaining accreditation to be a cat friendly practice. Superb, very informative and approachable lecturer. Loved how practical she was in terms of first opinion practice and truly passionate about her subject. Excellent Course, Excellent venue, beautifully refurbished! Great Cpd in Every way!
The course was well structured, The lecturer was excellent, knowledgeable and an expert in the field, excellent course, Lecture space good Lunch good. Good amount of breaks in between lectures
Excellent course, excellent lecturer, good new venue easy to find, catering good. 9/10
Don't Fear the Feline!
Mix of cutting edge/new ideas and down to earth/practical ideas for use in general practice (ie not too highbrow!)
I have been in practice for 42 yrs but still found it useful and engaging
Really well done as an online event, meant I could still do the CPD day even with having to collect kids etc
For me it was a great benefit being online, it meant I could 'attend' the course but still be at home to look after the children.
I enjoyed the format. It was structured but relaxed.
Online is perfect!! hate the faff involved with in-person courses, a bit old-style nowadays
Really liked it being online, gives me good flexibility. I am neurodivergent and I like being able to do CPD like this from home. Loved that I could chose the level of interaction; some days I can interact a lot and others not so much and I really appreciated that autonomy and emphasis on it being however I want to learn.
I think you are doing an excellent job. And I personally concentrate much better from home.

Dr Sarah Caney's Cat Café is an oasis of quality information on feline health and care in what is otherwise a desert of mediocrity
Just want to say a massive thank you. I am a human nurse and the information given in the sessions is at a good level to understand but also enough to make me think about things too! Thank you
The Cat Café talks are informative, have practical applications in the home environment and are presented in a very easy to listen to informal manner. I would highly recommend them. Aine, Ireland
Thank you most sincerely for this outstanding series, it is a truly invaluable resource for committed cat owners. It can help us help our vets to care for our cats by allowing us to more accurately observe our cats and note any significant changes or causes for concern. Thank you to Sarah and all involved in bringing this Cat Café to us, it is very much appreciated. From Aedamair , mum of Birman twins Poppy and Figaro

I've attended and watched recordings of 2 sessions on CKD, which I found very informative. It was interesting to learn of the advances in treatment since I cared for my CKD cat in 2012. Thank you for providing a valuable service to cat owners!
Vet Professionals website is a great source of information which I have referred to for many years, Sarah's books too have been invaluable. Very happy with the support you are providing, particularly during this difficult time. Keep doing what you're doing, thank you!

Very informative and helpful. I'll be joining again next week for sure.
(from Debs, carer of Buff)
I just wanted to thank you for the wonderfully informative Cat Café talks you are currently hosting. Living through these testing times is not made any easier when there are some conflicting and often confusing reports circulating out there regarding our precious pets. Listening to a trusted voice such as yours has provided much needed reassurance and clarity and has certainly helped to allay the worries and concerns us cat owners have been experiencing. Your talks are helping to restore a sense of calm and put things in perspective so thank you for taking the time to run these, it really is appreciated.
(from Mel, carer of Rufus)
Very much enjoying watching the Cat Café recordings, really informative and helpful - they are a fantastic idea.

One of the most magical memories of 2022 was the hope you gave us with Misty and the amazing care and support, teaching us how to look after her with KD.
It has been a God send, she has put on weight, her test results have improved and she is thriving on your fantastic treatment plan.
We are so grateful to you and your team and would like to wish you all a very happy new year.
