About this course
What to do when a dog can’t urinate.
The course will cover novel diagnostic techniques for bladder, urethral and prostatic cancer. We will also review the various medical and surgical treatment options for these tumours as well as minimally invasive options (such as urethral stenting, balloon dilation and chemoembolisation) with an interactive and multidisciplinary approach. We will discuss complications and outcomes from these techniques, to help veterinarians identify which dogs may benefit from these treatments.
Why do this course?
The course will provide the tools for veterinarians to decide the best diagnostic approach in dogs with urinary cancer to widen their knowledge on the different treatment options available for these patients.
The webinar will run from 12.30pm to 2.30pm London time.
Recorded version will be available to purchase for £35 approximately two weeks after the live course date.
