About the course

 

Tutored by Chris Scudder BVSc DipACVIM MRCVS and Sophie Keyte BVMS (Hons), MVetMed (Dist), DipACVIM MRCVS

This course is aimed to be a refresher of the common endocrine diseases. It will be divided into the following modules:

  • Diabetes mellitus in dogs and cats
  • Hyperadrenocorticism in dogs
  • Hyperparathyroidism and disorders of calcium
  • Hyperthyroidism in cats and hypothyroidism in dogs
  • Hypoadrenocorticism in dogs
  • Endocrinopathies presenting as an emergency patient

Each module will provide a short overview of current information regarding endocrine disease pathophysiology and possible presenting clinical signs, treatment options and alternatives for the poorly responsive patient.

Vet CPD Online Tutored Courses take approximately 8 hours to complete and can be completed at your own pace and at any time over the course’s 3-week period. There are webinars to watch, downloadable course notes and clinical cases to work through, plus – what makes our courses unique – a busy clinical forum where questions and answers are posted and where delegates have access to the instructor for the duration of the course. This always generates some lively discussions and the idea that no one should leave a course with any unanswered questions.

At the end of the course there is a final exam plus a Certificate of Completion for your CPD records
