About this course
Worried about treating orthopaedic injuries in cats? This two-day practical and lecture-based course will give you the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the most common orthopaedic pathologies and injuries in cats. The focus will be on the diagnosis, management and common complications such as hock injuries, femoral neck fractures or sacroiliac luxations and pelvic fractures. Both plastic bones and cadaver limbs will be used for demonstrating and practising surgical stabilisation of some of these fractures.
This course would be of interest to any veterinarian wishing to refresh their knowledge and practical skills in the management of orthopaedic injuries in cats. It would also be a useful CPD for candidates enrolled on the RCVS CertAVP module Orthopaedic Surgery A (C-SAS.6).
