About this course

We are hoping to deliver this course on Friday 21st October 2022 however due to the ongoing pandemic and wider implications on the RVC we can not take bookings at this time. In the meantime please register your interest with us and we will contact you when the course is bookable.

Are you sure we can block that? How do you do it?!

This is a practical onsite course that aims to teach participants how to implement local anaesthesia techniques on a day-to-day basis in veterinary practice. The course is designed to cover information relevant for both vets and nurses. We encourage vets and nurses from the same practice to attend the course so that a coordinated approach to analgesia in their practice can be developed. Relevant legislation will be covered.

Why do this course?
This course will be useful for those who want to start with the basic local anaesthesia techniques but also for those who want to improve/learn more advanced techniques.

Course fees: Vet and nurse team £998; Vet only £699; Nurse only £349
