About this course

What’s the latest evidence about optimal management of CKD? What still remains controversial?

Chronic kidney disease is a common problem seen in small animal practice, particularly in cats. Although the condition can rarely, if ever, be cured, a patient’s life can be significantly extended by strategies aimed at preventing further damage to nephrons. Misconceptions remain however, regarding early diagnosis and about which management strategies are most effective and why. Additionally, as new biomarkers become available, new studies are performed and new medications are licensed: how can we be sure what the best approach is for our patients?

The key topics will addressed with a variety of resources including webinars, reading materials, case studies and quizzes.

Why do this course?
This course is suitable for anyone working in first opinion practice, but is particularly aimed at those interested in nephrology and urology, who want to diagnose and manage these conditions at a high level. 

The webinars for this course will be pre-recorded and can be viewed as recorded versions throughout the course. A live Q&A session with the tutors will run at 2pm (London time) on Tuesday 6th July with a 15 minute registration and familiarisation period prior to the commencement of the session.
