Event Description

Registration will open at 09.30, with the course starting at 10.00. The course will finish at 16.00.

Anaemia and bleeding are amongst the most challenging situations to deal with in companion animal medicine. The clinical signs can be dramatic for owners and life threatening for patients. The differential diagnosis list can be long, and the therapeutic and prognostic implications can vary dramatically.

This course aims to get practitioners comfortable with some of the more common issues that they are likely to encounter in emergency and chronic settings. This will include stabilisation of the collapsed anaemic patient, investigating the causes of anaemia, treating immune mediated haemolytic anaemia and an overview of transfusion medicine.

The five key things delegates will learn from this course are: 

  • How to investigate anaemia
  • How to treat canine IMHA
  • How to investigate bleeding in cats and dogs
  • Which blood products to give and when
  • How to give blood and what can go wrong

Please note - if you want to book three courses for the price of two please call Anna Mcgown on 020 7908 6336.
