What still remains controversial?Chronic kidney disease is a common problem seen in small animal practice, particularly in cats.

Misconceptions remain however, regarding early diagnosis and about which management strategies are most effective and why. Additionally, as new biomarkers become available, new studies are performed and new medications are licensed: how can we be sure what the best approach is for our patients?The key topics will addressed with a variety of resources including webinars, reading materials, case studies and quizzes.Why do this course?This course is suitable for anyone working in first opinion practice, but is particularly aimed at those interested in nephrology and urology, who want to diagnose and manage these conditions at a high level.
