“The problem of pain – evidence and anecdote in small animal pain management” will be hosted by veterinary anaesthesia specialist Gwen Covey-Crump on 18 May.

‘Tricky problem’

She said: “We will talk about how to engage clients in the process and get the whole veterinary team on board – nurse, receptionist, vet and client.

“Delegates will leave equipped with a chronic pain ‘tool kit’ to simplify treatment of this tricky problem.”

The event will take place at the University of Bristol School of Veterinary Sciences in Langford from 9:15am to 5pm.

Tickets cost £120 and include refreshments and a buffet lunch.
