Event Description

The aim of this course is to improve the confidence of those veterinarians performing small mammal surgical procedures in first opinion practice. The first day will be lecture based and cover a variety of surgical conditions that can pose challenges for the small mammal surgeon. The second day will consist of a practical session to allow delegates to practise surgical procedures on a variety of small mammal species. These will include dental and orofacial procedures such as abscess resection, in addition to surgery of the gastrointestinal, urinary and reproductive systems. The focus of the practical day will be on procedures that are performed in general practice.

Why do this course? This course will be of interest to you if you see rabbits and other small mammal patients on a regular basis, and wish to update your knowledge and improve your surgical skills.
