A five-part learning series for vets with Georgina Fricker.
With the current popularity of brachycephalic breeds in the UK, practitioners are increasingly encountering canine corneal and ocular surface conditions. Using case-based discussion this course aims to provide practitioners with confidence in approaching common disorders of the canine cornea and pre-corneal tear film.
