Event information

Objectives and goals of the course

This two days course is designed for veterinary practitioners with some experience in treatment of fractures and other orthopaedic conditions in small animals. Some anatomical differences makes the orthopaedic care in feline patients more challenging and might reflects to the treatment options. The course will consists of theoretical sessions alternating with small group practicals on cadaver specimens. This will allows the participants to implement the knowledge delivered during the theoretical parts in the practical sessions starting with performing the surgical approach to different bones and using different implants for stabilising some of the most commonly seen fractures in feline patients.
Overview of most common fracture scenarios in feline patients
Decision making process in fracture planning
Interactive case-oriented discussion
After the course, participants will be able to construct a treatment plan and will become familiar how to treat most common orthopaedic conditions and fractures in feline patients.
