About this course

No need for neurophobia – the five finger rule will enable you to tackle any neuro case with confidence!

This course aims to equip you with the knowledge and skills required to apply clinical reasoning skills to important neurological problems that present in small animal practice. Not only will you develop and strengthen your problem solving skills in veterinary neurology, you will also become more confident in identifying abnormalities seen on the neurological examination and in managing neurological cases.

Why do this course?
Neurology is like maths – people either love it or hate it. We will provide you with tools to enable you to think like a neurologist and feel confident to manage any neurological presentation. We hope to make you love neurology!
