Veterinary professionals are being offered the opportunity to brush up on best practice anaesthesia at a series of CPD meetings across England during September and October.

Anaesthesia in dog.
The meetings will be hosted by Association of Veterinary Anaesthetists members, said Jurox.

Entitled “Fearless Feline and Confident Canine Anaesthesia”, the meetings – hosted by Jurox (UK) and accredited by the Association of Veterinary Anaesthetists (AVA) – will be split into two one-hour sessions, with a three-course meal being served throughout the evening.

Two sessions

The first session will cover anaesthesia in the geriatric cat, specifically focusing on patients with chronic kidney disease, hyperthyroidism, respiratory disease and feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

This will then be followed by an interactive, case-based session highlighting best practice anaesthesia for:

  • the canine c-section
  • dogs with gastric dilatation and volvulus
  • the brachycephalic patient
  • dogs diagnosed with cardiac murmurs
  • the aggressive, but healthy dog

Exciting expertise

The meetings are to be hosted by Jurox’s team of field-based vets, all of whom are trained by veterinary anaesthesia diplomats, and many of which work as locums in practice. The main content of the meetings will be delivered by RCVS specialists and European diploma holders in veterinary anaesthesia and analgesia, the company claims.

Each place costs £35, however, 30 subsidised places at £20 per head will be allocated on a first come, first served, basis. Meetings account for two hours’ CPD.
