A six-part learning series with Fiona Adam covering common internal medicine topics.

Returning to small animal practice after a career break, or moving into small animal practice from large animal work? This learning series will help you consult with confidence. It discusses some common small animal medical presentations such as vomiting, diarrhoea, fever and polydipsia; including any recent changes in the way these cases are managed.

After viewing you should feel confident to recognise the vomiting dog that is hiding more significant illness, know which symptomatic therapies should (and shouldn’t) be used in acute diarrhoea, and which investigations to start with in a case of canine diarrhoea.  It also reviews hyperthyroidism and chronic kidney disease, two frequent diagnoses in small animal practice, and look at the up-to-date thinking on how to best approach these cases.
