A detailed look at the investigation and management of endocrine diseases in dogs and cats.
This veterinary thought exchange online tutored course takes a more detailed look at the investigation and management of endocrine diseases in dogs and cats.
Endocrine diseases are common in small animal practice, but their investigation can be confusing and their management very challenging. How much do we really need to investigate that increased calcium? How unstable can my diabetic dog really be? What is the best test to diagnose Cushing’s disease and how best do I monitor? We aim to answer all these questions and much more.
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.
