About this course

Many vets will be keen to teach surgical skills but are unsure where to start. Will my neutering technique be ok, what if something goes wrong with the surgery? How much will the students expect to do? 

The RVC’s Shelter Medicine Team are experienced neuter surgeons and spend most days carrying out neuters and teaching final year vet students at the same time. Join us to see how we teach neuter surgeries and get the latest top tips for a safe and speedy surgery to maximise the experience for yourself and your student while ensuring the pet is safe.
