The Companion Animal Nutrition (CAN) Conference Returns in 2020

25 October 2019

In 2020 the Companion Animal Nutrition (CAN) Conference, running in partnership with the Pet Food Manufacturers Association and the University of Northampton, will return on Thursday 13th February 2020 at the University of Northampton (Waterside Campus), Northamptonshire, UK

This conference brings together researchers, industry professionals and students to discuss a range of topics including nutrient requirements, diet formulation, feed production, feeding practices, feeding behaviour and enrichment and feed related health issues in pets.

The theme for the conference will be Feeding for Behavioural Enrichment with a keynote address by Dr Sandra Mccune in the morning, and a panel discussion in the afternoon.

Sarah Hormozi, PFMA Science & Education Manager advises: “CAN Conference is unique because it emphasises on all aspects of feeding and nutrition in companion animals only. Our 2016 CAN Conference was a real success with research presented on several species of small mammals, fish and exotic pets as well as cats and dogs. We look forward to seeing the latest science in pet nutrition at the CAN Conference 2020.”
