Emergency surgery in dogs and cats can be as rewarding as it is daunting.  They often present as acute life-threatening cases demanding immediate and effective diagnosis and treatment.  This one-day course will cover the assessment and management of common surgical respiratory, abdominal and urinary emergencies in the dog and cat.

Essential techniques including oxygenation, thoracocentesis, the placement and maintenace of thoracic drains, tracheostomy tubes, the placement of feeding tubes and urinary catheterisation will be described in detail.  The surgical management of a number of the more common conditions such as gastric dilatation torsion and septic peritonitis will also be discussed.  Clinical case studies and numerous video clips will be used to augment lectures with the aim of developing a logical approach to the management of these demanding cases.

This course is discounted by 10% for bookings before 4th April 2016.

Alumni and Clinical Associate practices receive a 20% discount on the full course price.
