Schedule 3 of the Veterinary Surgeons Act allows registered veterinary nurses to perform acts of minor surgery under veterinary supervision. This highly practical cadaver-based course aims to give an introduction to the typical procedures covered under this legislation, allowing delegates to gain confidence in their surgical skills in a relaxed setting. The initial management of traumatic wounds will be covered, along with the decision making process of why, when, and how we close these wounds. Some specific procedures will also be outlined and performed.

Topics to be covered include:

Initial management of traumatic wounds - lavage and debridement
Suture material selection, suture patterns, and instrumentation
Suturing skills - how to close traumatic wounds
Surgical drains - why we use them & how we place them
Ear and tail injuries - management and amputation
