About this course

Following the Royal Veterinary College’s decision to postpone the 2020 course, we are hoping to run this course instead on Thursday 14th & Friday 15th October 2021. Being mindful of current UK Government public health advice about the risk of COVID-19 being spread through close contact, we are unable to take registrations for onsite courses currently. In the meantime if you are interested in attending this course please contact us and we will email you as soon as this course is bookable.

Are you dreading feline extraction cases? Unsure how to get good dental radiographs in cats and how to interpret them?

This course aims to equip you with all you need to know to complete your next feline dental consultation and procedure with confidence. It will provide you with a solid foundation of theory, rounded off with a practical session on cat cadavers and a session on radiographic interpretation. The course fee includes a set of IM3 dental instruments to use during the practical and take home at the end of the course.

Why do this course?
Feline dentistry forms a big part of small animal practice. This course will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to deal with feline dental presentations.
