Anaemia is one of the most commonly diagnosed abnormalities in cats and dogs. Whether regenerative or not, we cover it all. We also look at a practical approach to transfusion medicine and bone marrow biopsy.
This veterinary thought exchange online tutored course takes a more detailed look at the investigation and management of anaemia in dogs and cats.
Anaemia is the most common hematologic abnormality encountered in veterinary clinical practice and can be the cause of disease (e.g., immune-mediated haemolytic anaemia [IMHA]) or a marker of underlying disease (e.g., cancer, chronic kidney disease). We will discuss how to get the most information out of your blood smear and haematology as well as reviewing the most up to date way of treating anaemia, including IMHA. There is also a video webinar looking at the practical elements of bone marrow biopsy and transfusion medicine.
The course is run by our very own Scott Kilpatrick (EBVS and RCVS Recognised Specialist in Small Animal Internal Medicine). The course runs over an eight-week period and takes around 10 hours to complete. The course is delivered via video webinars and supplemented with discussion forums and live chats with the course tutor, giving you the opportunity to ask questions or discuss cases you may be facing in your practice.
