About this course

Emergency cases can be some of the most fun and rewarding patients seen in veterinary practice. However, they can also be some of the more challenging and stressful patients to treat. This course will provide practitioners with a rational and logical approach to the assessment of the emergency patient. It will focus on interpretation of physical examination findings and basic clinicopathologic and imaging data with an emphasis on information that will help you formulate a rational stabilisation plan.

The course is suitable for both veterinary surgeons in general practice and those with a special interest in (or fear of!) emergency medicine. It will also be useful CPD for veterinarians preparing for the RCVS CertAVP C modules in emergency and critical care. Participants can earn up to 42 CPD hours.
