About the course

Feline orthopaedics has progressed a lot over recent years and it’s easy to feel left behind. This course will focus on some of the common feline orthopaedic problems encountered in general practice. Case-based discussions will be combined with short review lectures to highlight key aspects in management and getting the best outcomes. Wet labs will teach you some extremely useful transarticular ESF techniques for managing stifle and hock trauma as well as a session helping you learn and refine exposure of the femoral head and neck for perfecting your FHNE.

What you’ll learn:

  • Decision making for pelvic fractures
  • Salvage surgical options for hip problems

  • How to manage the tricky tibial fracture
  • Talocrural joint instability; to fix or fuse
