About this course
Please note this course is scheduled to run on Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st October 2024. Please email [email protected] to register your interest.

Does your heart sink when you see there is a large dog neuter on the surgery list? Do you hesitate to do an exploratory laparotomy even though in your heart you know it is the next best diagnostic step? Would you like to feel more confident dealing with your next acute abdomen?

The aim of this course is to improve the confidence of those veterinarians who sometimes (or always) feel out of their depth when performing routine abdominal surgical procedures in small animal practice.

The practical day will allow you to perform fundamental procedures required for abdominal surgery ranging from entering the abdomen safely, tying secure ligatures, isolating organs within the abdomen and developing a systematic approach to exploration of the abdominal cavity.

Why do this course?
You will learn how to perform exploratory laparotomy and a range of abdominal procedures with confidence and gain insight into the clinical decision making that can optimise patient care.

Who is it for?
