Triaditis/IBD/Lymphoma and “The Journal Club” – An update on all things new in feline medicine that have been published recently, and some that haven’t! – Margie Scherk DVM DipABVP on Tuesday, 24/Apr/2018 at 4.00 PM

Margie Scherk DVM DipABVP 

Dr. Scherk is a private practitioner who founded Cats Only Veterinary Clinic, in Vancouver, BC in 1986 working there fulltime until June 2008 when she “retired” from active practice. She graduated from the University of Guelph in 1982 with a DVM from the Ontario Veterinary College.  In 1995 she became board certified in the specialty of Feline Practice by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP). After many years of serving on the Board of the American Association of Feline Practitioners she was honoured to be its President in 2007. Since its inception in 1995, she has been a member of the AAFP Feline Vaccine Guidelines Panel, most recently having the responsibilities of being its Chair for the 2013 version.

She founded the Feline Internal Medicine folder on Veterinary Information Network (VIN), and through many opportunities on the online medium, has grown to love teaching veterinarians, vet students and veterinary care providers both online and around the world. She has authored numerous book chapters and scientific papers and is the North American editor for the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery. One of the things she is most proud of is pioneering the use of the Transdermal Fentanyl Patch for the alleviation of pain in companion animals. She is an advocate of the Paw Project and hopes to end the practice of declawing cats in Canada. She loves to share her love of cats and feline medicine with others, with her focus being the patients’ point of view.  She shares her home with her husband Jim, misses her adult children, loves to cook, is a triathlete and is allowed to serve three cats: Nimitz, Jules, and Harvey.
