Crook in the Guts - an Abdominal Conference

Join us in September for some white sand, secluded beaches, bushland, koalas and incredible food – if this isn’t enough of an excuse to visit Noosa, we’ve got just the program to top it off.

Join international GIT legends Kenny Simpson and Ed Hall in this beautiful location as they share with you their wealth of knowledge on all things gut in dogs and cats.

Gastritis and vomiting, acute and chronic enteropathies, an appraisal of the latest in microbiome management and faecal transplants and updates on the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal conditions will all be covered. Tips for successful biopsies, the role of diet and antibiotics in gut illness and emergency management of GDV are among the many presentations which any small animal practitioner will find incredibly useful.

Beyond the conference, there are award winning restaurants, gorgeous bushwalks, pristine beaches, kite surfing, fantastic markets... Noosa really does have something for everyone.

Join us next September!

NOTE: The Conference program will be announced soon!
