Indoor cats are completely dependent on their owners for their survival and quality of life. As in other species, the health
and welfare of captive cats depends upon the quality of their environment. This presentation will present a comprehensive
list of resources needed to provide an enriched environment for all cats, and explain how to create an enriched environment.
Problems in the environment also appear to influence the appearance of signs of a variety of chronic disease syndromes in
cats, potentially by unmasking underlying predispositions to these disorders. The mechanisms thought to mediate the effects
of the external environment will be presented, and Dr. Buffington also will demonstrate how to identify the role, if any,
of the environment in the disorder. How to discuss this aspect of care to promote adherence to therapeutic recommendations
will be reviewed, followed by a discussion of collaborating with the client, your technician and our website to choose and
implement appropriate changes, helping clients implement needed changes, and troubleshooting problems that may arise. (1 CE
