Local anaesthesia techniques have grown in popularity and are now an important part of anaesthesia in small animal veterinary medicine. Veterinary nurses are key in delivering an array of applications of local anaesthesia, working within the RCVS Code for Professional Conduct.

The anatomy and theory behind nerve blocks and epidurals in cats and dogs will be taught, with particular emphasis on problem solving and dealing with potential complications.
