About this course

Revitalise, Revive and Restore your essential knowledge of UK small animal practice in this completely new bespoke CPD Course.

Do you feel the need to recap and advance your knowledge on conditions that crop up during a typical day in practice? Instead of a subject-specific CPD course, do you just want a really good update in several key small animal practice areas? Are you returning to small animal practice after a career break or coming to work in the UK and want a broad introduction to best practice in the UK?

Then this 3 day interactive course is just what you are looking for!

You’ve taken a blood sample, but what do the results mean? You have taken a chest radiograph, what is that lung pattern suggesting? Sedation is required in a blocked cat, what is the safest, most effective option? Which wound dressing should you use, there are so many?

Our approachable and friendly speakers have selected a variety of subject areas to discuss with you. They will provide you with clear, reassuring and practical guidance, equipping you with the confidence to cope with the complexity and diversity of small animal practice in the UK today.
