About this course

A hands-on calving course aimed at the new graduate vet in practice.

This course offers new graduates the opportunity to immerse themselves in case discussions about calving.

Additionally, a wet-lab session on uterine suturing technique will give the opportunity to practice and hone c-sections skills in a practical manner.

Why do this course?
This course will enable you to feel confident in both the practical aspects of calving as well as the skills needed to communicate with your clients.
