About the course

A five part series with Clare Rusbridge exploring small animal neurology.

***The cost of this course (£35 + VAT) also includes unlimited access to vet-ecpd.com for 1 full month, allowing you to view hundreds of hours of certified CPD lectures on a huge variety of topics!**

Do you have neuro-phobia or do you want to extend your knowledge of small animal neurology beyond the basics? The advent of the smart phone means that veterinary surgeons are increasingly given movie clips of dogs and cats “doing weird stuff”. This series begins with a refresher on how to perform a neurological examination and then delves into the murky world of twitches, jerks, spasms, scratches and collapses.

Topics covered include:

-How to confidently perform a neurological exam and interpret the results
-Distinguishing a movement disorder from a seizure and how to manage them
-Recognising and treating Chiari malformation and syringomyelia
-Neuropathic pain and itch
