New support tools

Craig Sankey, brand manager at Dechra, said: “We hope as many people as possible will take the opportunity to attend these free events as part of their CPD and learn more about how Dechra products can help in clinical situations.

“We have a number of new support tools, including treatment logbooks, case studies, waiting room displays and an owner website that can help veterinary professionals in their day to day practice.”

Limited places are available at each event. To book a place, register in advance at
