7 March - 27 March


Abdominal surgery of the dog and cat

Abdominal surgery of the dog and cat: This course is aimed at all small animal practitioners who need to do abdominal surgery as one of their roles.  Abdominal surgery of the dog and cat starts with a review of laparotomy technique, including the approach, exploration and closure.  In the subsequent modules we focus on the abdominal organs which are most often of surgical interest (gastro-intestinal tract, liver and spleen and the internal genitalia).  We will look at the common surgical diseases and their management in a practical way that is achievable by the general practitioner, using case examples.  At the completion of the course, the delegate will have learned how to safely open, explore and close the abdomen, and have a set of practical techniques to manage common abdominal surgical presentations.  It will appeal to recent graduates, as well as all practitioners who need to carry out abdominal surgery on an occasional or regular basis.
